chicken wild rice burger

we in minnesota love wild rice and our favorite soup is chicken wild rice soup. we have a strong indian culture here so I wanted to appeal to the local wild rice crop and utilize that product. it is a healthy burger and great on the grill.


1 pound ground chicken
1/2 yellow onion chopped
1 large carrot chopped into small pieces
1 tsp kosher salt
1tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 Tblsp fresh chopped rosemary
1tsp fresh chopped garlic
1/2 Tblsp fresh chopped thyme
1tsp cayenne pepper
4 butter crackers crushed
1/4 cup cooked wild rice
2 Tblsp Sutter Home White Zinfindel
cayenne mayo(recipe to follow)
sliced tomato


put ground chicken, chopped onion,salt, pepper,rosemary,garlic,thyme,cayenne pepper and crackers in bowl. Meanwhile bring a small saucepan to with 1 cup water to a boil, add carrots and cook til tender approx. 5 min. drain and add to chicken mixture. cook wild rice according to directions. add to chicken mixture then add wine. make 4 good size patties and grill on preheated grill approx 6 min on 1st side the approx 4 min on other side. Using a meat thermometer make sure temperature is at least 185 degrees. serve on grilled buns with lettuce,tomato and cayenne mayo.


these burgers are the best on the grill with grilled buns. You can alter the amount of cayenne pepper in the mayo if you have children eating or for those who do not care for spicy foods.
