Chicken Juicy Lucy

It's BBQ season and Juicy Lucy's are kind of a BIG DEAL in Minneapolis.  However I'm not a big fan of ground beef.  This is my take on the classic juicy lucy.  If you don't know what a juicy lucy is let me explain....A CHEESE STUFFED BURGER!

Hope you like!


1 package of ground chicken
1/2 brick of pepperjack cheese
1 clove of garlic
1 egg
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon of flour
2 teaspoons zesty italian dressing or other marinade that you have laying around
Salt and Pepper


Start by slicing the garlic and then cooking it in a pan with olive oil.  Cooking the garlic before you BBQ helps tone down the taste. Once the garlic is browned combine with the remaining ingredients except for the cheese.  Mix well.  Form medium sized patties and put on a plate.  Thinly slice the cheese.  Place 3 pieces of cheese on one of the patties.  Then put another patty on top and seal.  Do this with all remaining cheese and patties.  Grill for 8-10 minutes or until done!
