Grilled Sweet Maple Fig Onion Chicken Burger

Urban Recipes

By Christina Jeffrey

My favourite gourmet burger is this Grilled Sweet Fig Onion Chicken Burger, and I just had to share it with you before summer ends! It's so flavourful and satisfying you will want to try this one.

This grilled chicken is on a bed of green leaf lettuce, honey mustard, thin slices of tomato, avocado, goat cheese and topped with my caramelized sweet maple fig Onions. 

I made a personal choice to not eat red meat a few years ago, with exception of lamb on the odd holiday. So when I am grilling up some beef burgers for my family, I throw some chicken on for myself and let me tell you, if you beef lovers try this you may never go back!   If you want to make any chicken burger or beef burger extra special then you must try these Sweet Maple Fig Onions.  It really takes this chicken burger to a whole other level.
