Chicken Apple Burgers

Shredded apple keeps these chicken burgers moist and flavorful without adding any extra fat. Serve with potato salad or coleslaw dressed with a mustard vinaigrette.

Yields: 4 main-dish servings
Total Time: 25 min
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 10 min


  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cored
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground black pepper
  • 1 pound(s) ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup(s) (about 1/2 stalk) finely chopped celery
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1/2 cup(s) whole-berry cranberry sauce


  1. From each apple, cut 6 thin slices crosswise from center (for a total of 12 apple rings). From remainder, coarsely shred 3/4 cup apples. Spray ridged grill pan with nonstick cooking spray; heat pan over medium-high heat until hot.
  2. In medium bowl, stir shredded apple with poultry seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper until blended. Mix in chicken and celery just until combined, but do not overmix. Shape chicken mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick burgers, handling mixture as little as possible.
  3. Place burgers in grill pan; cook 10 to 12 minutes or just until chicken loses its pink color throughout, turning over once. Serve burgers on buns with apple rings and cranberry sauce.
