Not much to look at, kind of boring in fact, with all the colors kind of melding into one. But the flavor, oh the FLAVOR (insert another delicious moan here)! Yes, my friends, here’s another winner from Build a Better Burger. I’ve made a total of 15 of the burgers from that book and they just keep getting better and better.
These were full-sized burgers, but I opted to make them into sliders because I don’t like over-cooked chicken and a big ol’ chicken burger, over a flame, is hard to control. It worked out so well because each bite had such a WOLLOP of flavor! Imagine it: goat cheese with three peppers and a chili aioli that’s got orange zest and the burger’s got a hint of cinnamon. Such a unique combination of ingredients.

Assemble the same as the photo, on a softer style bun. I only added a piece of spinach to give it a little color for the photo – definitely not necessary.
