Here's a grilled burger recipe just in time for Memorial Day. The mango salsa makes this burger extra tangy and juicy. Pair this with a pina colada and you'll be in a tropical paradise. Recipe adapted from Cooking for Keeps.


For the Patty
1 pound ground chicken breast
¼ cup red bell pepper, diced
½ medium onion, grated
1 garlic clove, grated
¼ cup green onion, chopped
⅛ cup jalapeño, minced
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons blackening seasoning , divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 whole-wheat buns
Mango Salsa
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cups frozen mango chunks, thawed
¼ onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, grated
1 tablespoon jalapeño, minced (or more if you want more spice)
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon jalapeño
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice


For the patty, combine all the ingredients in a bowl (except the last three) and form four patties. Sprinkle each patty (top and bottom) with blackening season. Heat a large non-stick skillet over a medium-high heat. Add olive oil. Cook patties until done (about 5 mins per side) Do not overcook.
For mango sauce, combine all the ingredients (except lemon juice) in a small sauce pan. Cook in medium heat and let it simmer for 5-8 mins. Then add the remaining jalapeno, cilantro, pinch of salt, and juice of lemon.
Assemble and enjoy!
@danidee this totally reminded me I was supposed to post my Mango Salsa recipe aaaaaages ago... I totally forgot sorry :( I'll post it later today :)
Chicken burgers are my favorite! I'm not a huge fan of turkey or beef.
I almost mistaken the mango salsa as mac & cheese.
I agree @AlohaJPark. And the fact you can use frozen chunks of mango instead of a fresh whole one makes this recipe all the more doable for me.
I wouldn't mind eating the mango salsa alone.
