Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add sauce ingredients to a heavy bottomed sauce pan. Cook over medium heat until boiling; lower heat and cook for 15 minutes, stirring to prevent sticking or burning.
  3. Mix ground chicken with chipotle, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika and form patties.
  4. Heat olive oil in an oven-proof skillet (preferably cast iron). Cook patties on one side for two minutes, flip and cook on the other side for two minutes. Slide the pan into the oven and cook for 15 minutes or until the center of the patties reach 165 degrees F.
  5. Top each bun base with lettuce, burger, Chipotle Blueberry Sauce, optional onions and avocado slices.

Serving Suggestion: Serve on whole grain bun with lettuce and thinly sliced red onion. To cut down on carbs and sodium, wrap in a butter lettuce leaf.

Beverage Pairing: Hard Cider or Blueberry Lambic (fruit beet).
