Directions

  1. Preheat an indoor or outdoor grill.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ground chicken, egg, oatmeal, steak seasoning, salt (optional), and pepper. Mix well.

  3. Divide the meat mixture into 5 equal portions and press into patties.

  4. Grill the burgers on one side for 4-5 minutes. Flip the burgers and use 2 Tbsps. of the barbecue sauce to brush the top of the burgers. Grill the burgers for 4-5 minutes and flip them again. Brush the other side with the remaining BBQ sauce. Grill for another 2-3 minutes or until the burgers are cooked through. (They should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F).

  5. Open one hamburger bun. Add the burger to the bottom half of the bun and top with 1 piece lettuce and 1 slice of tomato. Place the top of the bun on top of the burger. Repeat for remaining 4 burgers.
