Summer is well underway and here at my house we have been utilizing our grill several times a week. I was so excited when Red Gold Tomatoes contacted me to see if I would be interested in participating in their Summer Grillin’ Party. Of course I said yes! Red Gold Tomatoes sent me a much needed new apron (my old apron was ready to be retired) along with a package of six cans of Red Gold Tomato products and some recipes.
Red Gold Tomatoes is giving away 4,000 Summertime Tomatoes All Year Long aprons on their Facebook page each week through July 23rd so be sure to hop over and enter to win one. They are also giving away 1 Grand Prize of a Big Green Egg Grill. You can enter here: Red Gold Tomatoes Summer Grillin’ Party
I was immediately drawn to the Caribbean Chicken Burger recipe that Red Gold sent me. I have never used ground chicken before so I thought that this would be a great chance to try it. I doubled the original recipe so that I would have enough burgers for leftovers during the next week. I am a huge fan of Cilantro and I loved the taste of cilantro and lime in these burgers!!
Caribbean Chicken Burger
1 pound ground chicken
1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes with Lime Juice & Cilantro or 1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle, drained very well
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup bread crumbs
Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Combine ground chicken and Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes with Lime Juice & Cilantro, egg and bread crumbs in a bowl. Form into patties and season with salt and black pepper.
2. Place on grill and cook to desired temperature. 160 degrees for completely cooked burgers.
**I chose to place my burgers in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before grilling to help them stick together.
Serve with guacamole, avocado or roasted pineapple salsa. Top with mango chutney or fruit salsa.
