2 pounds ground chicken thighs

1 cup wild rice, cooked 

1/2 cup breadcrumbs 

2 tablespoons ground black pepper 

2 tablespoons garlic powder 

2 tablespoons onion powder 

2 tablespoons salt 

2 eggs 

1 bunch fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped

1 tablespoon vegetable oil 

6 whole-wheat buns 

Spicy mustard, for spreading 

6 small handfuls arugula 


  1. Combine the chicken, wild rice, breadcrumbs, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, eggs and parsley in a bowl and mix until well blended. Shape the mixture into six even patties.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the burgers and cook until cooked through and nicely browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  3. Slather the whole-wheat buns with some of your favorite mustard. Add the patties and top with arugula.

Cook’s Note

Before forming patties, test your burger mixture's seasoning by cooking a small sample in a skillet. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.
