1 pound 93% lean ground chicken (or sub ground turkey) -- do not use 99%
1/2 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed of excess moisture with a paper towel (from ½ of a medium zucchini)
2 tablespoons hot or medium buffalo sauce
1/4 cup very finely diced yellow onion
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
4 slices light cheese
Preheat grill to medium high heat (about 400 degrees F). Brush the grates with olive oil to prevent sticking. Or spray skillet with nonstick cooking spray.
Make the chicken burgers by adding the ground chicken/turkey, shredded zucchini, buffalo sauce, onion, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper to a large bowl. Mix with your hands until evenly combined. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape into 1/2 inch patties.
Grill over medium-high heat (around 400 degrees F) for 6-8 minutes per side or until burgers are cooked through and a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F. During the last few minutes of cooking the chicken burgers, add a slice of cheddar cheese on top of each burger patty; cover the grill for about 1 minute while the cheese melts.
