Grilled Chicken Cheese Garlic Burgers

Yea I know real original name right Grilled Chicken Cheese Garlic Burgers, but that’s what they are so…

1 lb ground chicken breast
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2-3/4 cup cubed (small cubes) of cheese (your choice, I used mozzarella)
garlic cloves to your taste (I love garlic so I use a lot)

Combine all ingredients together
Form into patties
Grill over medium high heat for approximately 6-7 minutes on each side.

Makes approximately 6 average size burgers

When it’s done some of the cheese will seep to the outside, other cubes will melt inside so when you take a bite you get a mouth full of garlic, cheese and chicken.
