Jalapeño Chicken Burger with Jicama Slaw Recipe

Making burgers out of ground chicken is a thing of beauty.

 

 

Let’s start with “What in the world is jicama?” Jicama is a Mexican root vegetable akin to a yam or turnip. However, it tastes and crunches more like a fruit — kind of like an apple.

 

Mixing jicama with a few other chopped veggies and a light dressing produces a wonderful slaw. We love a good slaw and this jicama version makes for a great unique twist. Speaking of unique twists…

 

A chicken burger comes out lighter than a beef one, with a slightly softer texture. In this chicken burger recipe, we add minced jalapeno along with garlic and chili powder for some subtle bite.
