Summertime is more or less here, my friends. I mean, I don’t know about you, but I’m ready. I want the sunshine and the butterflies and, yes, even the humidity frizzed out hair. I like summer, ok?

I also like burgers, which means that they are a total summer staple in this house.

I’ve been on a major chicken kick lately, so I thought a big ol’ chicken burger sounded like a winning dinner idea and boy, was I right.

This ground chicken burger is so full of flavor. And did I mention that I made these burgers each 1/3 of a pound? Big boy burgers. Mama was hungry.

These big ol’ burgers are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face this summer.

They’re moist and juicy, just the way a burger should be and they just so happen to have a secret ingredient.

Ready for it?

Cheese cracker crumbs. In the burger.

How fun is that?? It adds a ton of flavor to the burgers while helping the chicken all hold together. I also snuck in a big ol’ squirt of barbecue sauce, because summer and barbecue just belong together! Can you imagine having these at your next cook out? Total heaven!

These are super quick to prepare, so you can save time in the kitchen and enjoy your summer hanging with the kiddos or relaxing by the pool. Feel free to make these burgers smaller than I have. 1/4 pound burgers are every bit as good! Check out the video to see just how easy these are!

If you love burgers as much as I do, you have to try this pimento cheese burger! Try my best turkey burger recipe too!
