Copycat Chili Lime Chicken Burgers


Here’s something else that I’ve fallen in love with…a Copy Cat Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Chicken Burger.  The recipe is a zesty and fresh twist on chicken for dinner!

The recipe makes four burgers, and you’ll need a pound of ground chicken. Ground chicken does have a little more fat than turkey, so if you’re looking for a leaner alternative, use ground turkey.   I found the ground chicken at Walmart for $2.97 a lb.

Copy Cat Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Chicken Burgers

  • 1        lb ground chicken
  • 2       green onions, chopped
  • 1/4   cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2       Tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2       teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2   teaspoon salt
  • 1/4   teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1       lime, cut in half
  • 4      slices pepper jack cheese (optional)
  • 4      whole wheat buns, toasted


  • Combine chicken, green onions, bell pepper, cilantro, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes and juice of half a lime in a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined, then form into 4 patties and spray each side generously with non-stick spray.

  • Heat a large grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Grill burgers for 3-4 minutes a side, or until cooked all the way through. Place a slice of cheese on top of each burger, then cover with a large pot lid, and allow to melt for about a minute.
  • Remove burgers to a plate, tent with foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Place each burger on a toasted thin bun, then top with guacamole.
  • If you want to add guacamole,  take an avocado, 1/2 t. garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste, and mash it all together with a fork.

Hope you will try these burgers and let me know what you think.
