Lettuce Wrapped Chicken Burger with Zesty Ranch
The Ultimate Grilled Burger Wrapped in Lettuces with Onion and Heirloom Tomatoes ~ Homemade Ranch Dressing. Pulse chicken in a food processor, then add vegetables and seasonings for these amazing burgers
Grind the Chicken for the Burgers:
Clean and dry the tenderloins (white tough tendons removed with a small knife.)
Place 1/3 of them in a small 4 cup food processor. Pulse to “grind” – 6 times until finely chopped, but not minced.
Place in a large bowl. Continue with the next 1/3 – then the last 1/3.
If using a large food processor, can do the whole batch at once, pulsing – stir up half way with a rubber spatula.
Mix Ingredients Together:
To the bowl, add the next 8 seasonings – garlic through roasted peppers. Stir well to lend with a large fork.
Refrigerate, covered until ready to use.
Form 6 patties and place them on a waxed paper lined pan to hold.
(Can freeze some of the patties if you wish for another time.)
Time to Grill:
Set grill to high heat, brush with neutral oil. When good and hot, brush the tops of the burgers with a little oil, and place them oiled side down on the hot grill.
Cook until strong grill marks form, turn over with a metal spatula, turn down to medium heat.
Cook until firm and done, about 15 minutes total. Should be cooked through and juicy.
Remove the waxed paper, add burgers to the tray.
Lay radicchio leaves inside Boston lettuce leaves – make 6 piles.
To each: top with an onion slice (will not get the lettuces soggy), add a warm chicken burger, one tablespoon of ranch sauce and the tomato slices on top.
Easy to eat!: Pick up burger wrapping it with the lettuce leaves.
Serve extra Ranch Sauce on the side.
