These delicious chicken burgers are delicious and out-of-the-ordinary. Served on crusty garlic bread, the aroma will make your mouth water.


1 lb (0.5 kg) ground chicken
2 tsp (10 mL) basil, dried
1 tsp (5 mL) thyme, dried
1 tsp (5 mL) oregano, dried
1 1/2 tbsp (25 mL) sun-dried tomatoes, minced
1/2 onion(s), medium, minced
1/2 cup (125 mL) oats
1 egg(s), beaten
1 red pepper(s)
2 oz (60 g) Asiago cheese, grated
1 loaf garlic bread, prepared


1 Mix ground chicken, herbs, tomatoes, onions, oatmeal and egg. Shape into four rectangles about ¾ inch (2 cm) thick. With the back of a teaspoon, make a depression in the center of each burger. This helps cook the center of the burger more quickly.
2 Preheat barbecue to medium heat. Put burgers and red pepper on the grill.
3 Cook burgers for about 7-9 minutes per side or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 165°F (74°C).
4 Grill pepper until skin is blackened on all sides. Remove pepper from the grill and cool slightly. Peel off skin, remove stem and seeds, and cut pepper in four.
5 Heat garlic bread according to package instructions and cut four slices slightly wider than the burgers. Serve burgers on garlic bread, topped with roasted red pepper and Asiago cheese.
