Recipe: Copycat Chili Lime Chicken Burgers (Low FODMAP)

Have you ever tried Trader Joe's Chili Lime Chicken burgers? They're actually one of the first foods I tried at Trader Joe's, and as an easy freezer option- I've loved having them on hand ever since. They're made of simple ingredients and they're totally delicious. My only qualm? They're kind of puny. And even with a hearty bun and some thick slices of avo, I wish there were a bit more OOMPH to my burger, you know? Well... I decided to bring it in myself.

You all loved my last copycat recipe so I thought I'd bring in one of my other favorites! Simple, delicious, the best for summer.

You're going to love grilling with these. ENJOY!

Copycat Chili Lime Chicken Burgers

Makes 4 (hearty) burgers

1 lb ground chicken

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder (remove for low FODMAP)

1/4 tsp sea salt

zest of 1 lime

juice of 1 lime

  1. Mix all ingredients into a large bowl. Using hands (wet if needed), form into four balls. Flatten onto a parchment lined plate or baking sheet.

  2. Bake at 375 or grill for 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Chef's Note: burgers are quite sticky, as is the nature of using ground chicken. I recommend forming into patties with your hands and letting sit in the fridge for a few before grilling if using the grill-- and spraying the grill WELL to avoid sticking (start hot, too!).
