Best Chicken Bacon Burgers for Labor Day

  • Author: Marie Bostwick
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 1lb 98% lean ground chicken
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro (can substitute parsley)
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • ½ cup sauteed red onions
  • 4 slices crisp-cooked bacon
  • 4 slices pepper jack cheese (can substitute your favorite cheese)
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted
  • Lettuce
  • Condiments of your choice


  • Place ground chicken in a medium sized bowl. Add cilantro, thyme, paprika, salt, and pepper. Use a wooden spoon or your hands to mix together thoroughly. Form chicken mixture into four patties.
  • Place chicken patties onto a pre-heated grill. Cook about 5 minutes on both sides, or until cooked through and the interior temperature reaches 165. Top each burger with a slice of cheese during the last minute or two so it can melt.
  • Place cooked chicken burgers on the buns. Top each burger with one-fourth of the grilled onions, a slice of cooked bacon, lettuce, and the condiments of your choice.
