Southwest Chicken Burgers

Makes: 4  servings Prep 20 mins Cook 10 mins


  • 1 pound  ground chicken or turkey meat
  • 1/2 cup  shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup  prepared salsa
  • 2 tablespoons  chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons  chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon  plain fat-free yogurt
  • 4 hamburger rolls, split and toasted
  • Lettuce leaves
  • 2 tablespoons  chopped canned green chilies


1. Combine the chicken, zucchini, green chilies, cumin, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Shape into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.

2. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with vegetable cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook about 5 minutes per side or until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted in side of burger registers 165 degree F*.

3. Combine salsa, green onion, cilantro, and yogurt in a small bowl. Place each burger on the bottom half of a roll. Top each with 3 tablespoons of the salsa mixture, lettuce and the top half of the roll. Makes 4 servings.


  • The internal color of burgers is not a reliable doneness indicator. Ground chicken or turkey burgers must be cooked to 165 degrees F. An instant-read meat thermometer ensures perfectly cooked burgers. If using a digital instant-read thermometer, insert the tip of the thermometer into the food at least 1/4 of an inch for 10 seconds. If using a dial instant-read thermometer, insert the thermometer through the side of the burger to a depth of 2 to 3 inches to get an accurate reading.
