BBQ Chicken Burgers


Last night, I met Donna for our first e-book discussion. As the saying goes, “Two brains are better than one.” I went into the meeting with one idea…and left out meeting with a completely new and better idea of what our e-book would consist of.

We even consulted our server for her opinion on a few things. Donna went as far as to tip the waitress $100 on a $29 bill (!!). Yes, you read right. No extra zeros in there. Donna is a hoot and a half for a lot of reasons, but I do love her for her generosity and good will towards people, especially her patients. And waitresses ;)


During our chat last night, Donna and I got on the topic of cookouts which was all too timely for today’s Recipe Swap post!

Jenna of Jenna’s Cooking Journey recommended BBQ Chicken Burgers as one of her top-rated BBQ/warm weather recipes. If I had had the time, I would’ve whipped together some homemade BBQ sauce to make this all the better. Regardless, these were a hit!

When I posted those Buffalo Chicken Burgers last week, several people asked if ground turkey could be subbed in for the ground chicken and the answer is absolutely, positively yes! Use whatever you can find…or whatever is cheapest.


TGIF, that’s for sure. The weather is supposed to be beau-ti-ful this weekend – 80′s and sunny! 5 o’clock can’t come soon enough with weather like that. I think revving up the grill will be in order and perhaps another round of chicken burgers!

These were a huge hit and went over better than even the Buffalo Chicken Burgers with both Mr. Prevention and myself. There’s something about those “traditional” lettuce and tomato toppings that send this over the top. It’s a little some different with a little something classic – the perfect BBQ/warm weather combination! Thanks, Jenna!


TGIF! My copy of Fifty Shades of Grey arrived yesterday. I plan to plow through that this weekend while soaking up some sun. But first…clinic and meetings.

Happy weekend,


  1. Yum! I’m drooling!

  2. A $100 tip!?!? maybe i’m in the wrong profession…. :P

    OMG you are going to LOVE 50 shades of grey. and so is your husband. Let’s just say that my boyfriend has gotten MUCH happier since I started reading it. :P

  3. Beautiful photos!

    I can’t believe the $100 tip either!

  4. The burger loos & sounds amazing! Love people who make others’ day! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Yours look fantastic compared to mine. I can’t wait until we have grilling weather here again (one day it is in the high 40s, the next the 80s…never know what weather you’ll have).

  6. You’re going to be so sucked into 50 Shades… I hope you also have the other 2 in the series set to order as well… ha!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. This burger looks amazing!
    The e book sounds like a blast! And it always helps having someone you can work on it together with.
    Have a great weekend, Nicole!

  8. Dunk anything in BBQ sauce and I am in!

    If you like saucy burgers – check out this Belmont Sauce – you’ll have to scroll down to the bottom to get the recipe, but its so good and if you make a double batch, it keeps well in the fridge.

    Happy Friday!

  9. BBQ sauce and jelly… how cool! I’m definitely looking forward to sunshine this weekend too. Enjoy it!

  10. I can’t wait to hear about this e-book!! I had no idea you were working on one….what’s it about?! So exciting!
    Great recipe too, I’ll be making this soon :)
    Enjoy your weekend, and you’re new read! I think I’m going to have to get that book soon.

  11. I bet that waitress will remember y’all forever.

  12. Yum! That looks like perfect grilling food! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

  13. I love a good chicken burger and these look amazing!

    Thanks for being part of the recipe swaps!

  14. These look so good! I’ve been trying to find more variations on the standard hamburger. These are definitely getting added to the list!

  15. I made these last night and we loved them. I didn’t feel like chopping into an onion for just 1 teaspoon, so I subbed with some dried minced onion and 1 chopped green onion. I also brushed some bbq sauce on my burgers when they were about 5 minutes from being done. We loved them!
