Recipe | Jalapeño Chicken Burgers

Chelsea Jenkins | Gluten-Free Soldiers

Its finally Spring and I have just the recipe for those of you starting up your grills! I love this dish because its spicy AND it is actually paleo friendly.


  • 1 ½ pounds Ground Chicken
  • ⅝ cups dice Onion, White
  • ¼ cups chop Cilantro, Fresh
  • 2 teaspoons mince Garlic, Cloves
  • 2 teaspoons seed and dice Jalapeño
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes 


Mix together ground chicken, onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeño, ground cumin (this stuff smells so good), paprika, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Divide mixture and form into patties. 

Grill over medium-high heat and flip when bottom side of burger no loner sticks to the grill grates; I wasn't ready to grill outside so I cooked the burgers on medium-high heat in a pan. 

I served on a gluten free bun with bacon (duh), chipotle aioli sauce, and kale. IT WAS DELICIOUS!
