Rosemary Chicken Burgers with Rosemary Oven Fries

Pin It

I still enjoy a big ole juicy burger made with ground beef, but I have definitely started to prefer either ground turkey or chicken.

I don't know if it's because, subconsciously I know it's better for me or what, 
all I know is, I be diggin-em.

I also enjoy thinking up all the different kinds of flavors you can add to them.

Loving rosemary like I do, this one was a no-brainer. It turned out really good. 

I especially liked the simple and delicious Island Spread I threw together to go on it.

I served the burgers with Rosemary Oven Fries.

Delicious and easy to make. 

Slice up some russet potatoes, put them in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Let them soak for 15-20 minutes. Drain and rinse in clean water, drain well and spread them out on a kitchen towel, pat off excess water and let them dry. Once dry, put them in a large bowl, drizzle with about 1 tbsp of olive oil,  sprinkle with seasoning salt, pepper, lots of fresh rosemary and a pinch of cayenne. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and cook in a preheated 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until crisp and cooked through. 
I turn them over half way through cook time.

  2. This looks fantastic! I have never made a chicken burger this elaborate. My chicken burgers pretty much consisted of me plopping a boneless chicken breast on the grill :p.
