  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp minced garlic
  • tbsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tbsp Homemade Thousand Island Salad Dressing
  • 4 slices swiss cheese

  • 4 leaves romaine lettuce
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns


  • Mix the first 7 ingredients (chicken through salt/pepper) in a bowl until thoroughly incorporated.  Shape into 4 patties. Cook in pan preheated pan 5-7 minutes on each side until the internal temperature reaches 165℉.  Top each patty with 1 slice of swiss cheese, 1 tablespoon Thousand Island, tomato and lettuce. Serve on a whole-wheat bun.
  • Hack:  Place burgers on a cookie sheet and place them in the freezer until frozen.  Put individually into sealable sandwich bags and then into a sealable freezer bag or freezer container.  The rolls can also be frozen in the same manner.
  • Hack:  To extend the shelf life of romaine, separate leave and wash.  Dry in a salad spinner or with paper towels.  Place lettuce leaves in a sealable plastic bag or container with paper towels between each layer to absorb moisture.  Replace paper towels if they become soggy.
