Chicken Pesto Burgers

Another new paleo friendly recipe was concocted tonight when I was looking for inspiration for dinner. After some thought and seeing what I had in the fridge and freezer it was decided.

I also had the pesto that I made here to use up, so it was Chicken Pesto Burgers for our Sunday night dinner.

Chicken-pesto-burgersI served mine with eggplant chips, sautéed mushrooms and salad.

Chicken Pesto Burgers (makes 8)

Put the four chicken breasts into the food processor and chop to a small rough consistency (not minced).
Change the blade in the food processor to the mixing attachment, add the egg, almond meal and salt and pepper. Mix together.
Then add the pesto and mix till just combined.
