Chicken Burgers with Spinach and Caramelized Onions

Though I have yet to find a great gluten free recipe for burger buns — I’m working on it — I still enjoy a tasty burger. I’ve been experimenting more with ground chicken and turkey, and these chicken burgers with spinach and caramelized oinions have definitely earned their place on my “make again” list. The spinach and onions not only keep the meat nice and moist, but they also bump up the flavor. Add more caramelized onions and a little cheese on top, some rosemary thyme oven fries on the side, and you’ve got a winner!

Chicken Burgers with Spinach and Caramelized Onions
serves 4

Notes: If you don’t have ground chicken, ground turkey makes a great substitute. Add a little garlic, salt, and pepper to the extra spinach for a nice side dish.


1/2 10 oz. package frozen chopped spinach
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3 large yellow onions, sliced thinly
1 package ground chicken (most packages are 1 1/4 lbs.)
1 tsp. kosher salt + a pinch for the onions
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
cooking spray or additional olive oil
sliced cheese (optional)


1. Prepare spinach according to package directions. Allow to cool and, using a tea towel, sieve, or just your hands, squeeze any excess water from half of the spinach and set aside.

2. In the meantime, in a large skillet on medium low heat, add the olive oil, sliced onions, and a healthy pinch of kosher salt. Cook the onions, stirring regularly, until brown and caramelized, about 35 minutes. Transfer 1/3 of the onions to a small bowl to cool.

3. In a mixing bowl, add the cooled spinach, cooled 1/3 of the onions, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and ground chicken. Work the mixture with your hands until everything is thoroughly distributed. Portion the mixture into fourths, and make into 3/4 inch thick patties.

4. Spray your skillet lightly with cooking spray, or add 1-2 tsp. of olive oil to prevent the burgers from sticking. On medium high heat, cook the burgers until cooked the entire way through, about 6 minutes per side. Top with the rest of the caramelized onions and add a slice of cheese (optional). Serve immediately.
