This week we'll be enjoying a new addition to the meal plan: Chile Lime Chicken Burgers! We are also having teriyaki tofu, rosemary parmesan baked chicken salmon and more! What's on your menu?
Chile Lime Chicken Burgers from Trader Joe’s (in their freezer section) They were on sale for $3.49 for 4 burgers on Saturday. We were at Trader Joe's to pick up some of their organic tomato soup and tofu and they were sampling the Chili chicken burgers. My 10 year old loved them and they were on sale for a decent price so I picked up a box. They have 150 calories and 6 grams of fat each so much healthier than a regular beef burger. I don't usually like anything ground, but these are very lean and tasted great.
Here's a recipe from the Trader Joe's website using the Chile Lime Chicken burgers to make chicken tacos. Click HERE for the recipe.
If you want to make your Chile Lime chicken burgers from scratch, here's a recipe from iowagirleats.com. Click HERE for the recipe. It looks delicious and I may try it in the future. While you are on her website, check out her grilling recipes and salads. I will be making many of them!
