Ingredients
  • 2 lbs. ground chicken*
  • 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning from a 1.12 ounce packet
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 Martin’s Sandwich Potato Rolls
  • Optional: guacamole salsa, sour cream for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill pan, griddle, skillet, or outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a large bowl, use your hands to gently combine chicken and seasoning.
  3. Divide meat into 8 equal patties.
  4. Drizzle patties with olive oil (about 1 teaspoon). Cook patties about 5 minutes per side, or until just cooked through.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté peppers and onions in about 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and cook until tender (about 8-10 minutes).
  6. When the burgers are cooked, top each patty with ½ slice of cheddar cheese. Cover loosely with foil and let sit for about 2 minutes (or until the cheese is melted).
  7. Just before serving, place each burger on a bun and top with peppers and onions, as well as salsa, guacamole and/or sour cream.
Recipe Notes

*I like 92% lean ground chicken – anything with less fat than that will result in a dry burger!
