The most delicious Mexican chicken burger my family has ever tried. The inspiration for this recipe is my dad’s love for chicken burgers. I experimented to create the best chicken burger recipe and this one does not disappoint in the flavor department. If you find yourself bored with the same boring burger then you must try this recipe. This burger gets its amazing flavor from cumin, smoked paprika, and cilantro. Have you ever tried chicken burgers with pineapple? Talk about delicious.
I love to serve mine on sweet potato toast. Thinly slice the sweet potato and place it into a toaster just like regular toast. This is the perfect way to add in more nutrients. Yum.
