Before you come in contact with the raw chicken, grab a large bowl and 2 large plates, to have by your side, for later use.

In a large bowl, combine together the ground chicken, garlic, cilantro, jalepenos, paprika, chili poweder, and salt.

Once all of the ingredents are well combined, tightly pat together 6 4-ounce patties, and place them onto the plate.

Now, place a large skillet or grill pan onto the stove, over medium heat. Then, add the olive oil into the skillet.

After a minute or until the skillet becomes warm, place the patties into the skillet. Cook on one side for 5 minutes, and then flip over and cook for another 5 minutes.

Once the burgers are finished cooking, immeduately place the slices of cheese on top. Finally, place the patties on top of the buns and serve with the Roasted Corn Salsa.


** I used low-fat provolone cheese, in this recipe. You can use whichever cheese you would like, in place of the provolone.

The chicken must reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. 75 degrees C. in order to prevent any illness.

If you're not a fan of cilantro, replace it with parsley.
