Juicy Chicken Smash Burgers
My latest chicken obsession are these juicy chicken smash burgers! Thin, crispy and cheesy, these burgers are what summer is all about.
Prepare the Grill and Baking Steel:
Place the Baking Steel on the grill. Drizzle it with olive oil and rub it into the steel using a paper towel. Once well-seasoned, heat the grill.
Preheat the grill to 400-450 degrees. The steel will heat as the grill racks heat.
Prepare the Smash Burgers:
In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, crumbled cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and olive oil. Mix well using your hands.
Form the mixture into 6 evenly sized balls. (Mixture will be sticky, don’t worry.)
Add the balls to the hot baking steel and smash them using a metal spatula. Be sure to spray the spatula with cooking spray so the meat doesn’t stick to the cold metal.
Cook for 2-3 minutes per side. You’ll want the internal temperature to hit 165 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure doneness. Cooking time may vary based on size and thickness of the burgers.
Top with some extra shredded cheese once they are almost done and allow it to melt. Serve warm.
