1 teaspoon paprika

½ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

1½ cups Italian bread crumbs

2 tablespoons milk

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

3. Then add the bread crumbs, milk, onion and eggs to the spice mixture, and mix thoroughly to combine.

4. Now add the ground chicken, and mix completely. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions, and shape the portions into patties.

5. In a large skillet warm olive oil over medium-high heat. Arrange patties in the skillet and cook until browned, 3-5 minutes on each side.

6. Transfer browned patties to a 9″ x 13″ baking dish, and place baking dish in the preheated oven. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 155ºF. 7. Serve burger patties on hamburger buns, and garnish each burger with pickles, ham and mustard…aaaaaaaaahhhhhh!
