  • ½ cup dried cranberries, finely chopped

  • Boiling water

  • ½ cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted

  • ½ cup fine dry bread crumbs

  • 2 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 pound uncooked ground chicken

  • 4 ounce Brie cheese, thinly sliced

  • 6 kaiser rolls or ciabatta buns, split and, if desired, toasted

  • Mayonnaise (optional)

  • Fresh spinach or arugula (optional)

  • Thinly sliced red onion (optional)


  1. In a small bowl combine dried cranberries and enough boiling water to cover. Let stand for 10 minutes; drain well.

  2. In a large bowl combine cranberries, walnuts, bread crumbs, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Add ground chicken; mix well. Shape mixture into six 3/4-inch-thick patties.

  3. For a charcoal or gas grill, grease grill rack. Place patties on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 14 to 18 minutes or until no longer pink (165°F), turning once halfway through grilling and topping patties with cheese for the last 2 to 3 minutes of grilling.

  4. If desired, spread bottoms of rolls with mayonnaise; top with spinach. Add burgers and, if desired, red onion. Replace tops of rolls.
