Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 12 slices cheddar or Colby Jack cheese
  • 12 hamburger buns

Toppings (optional)

  • Lettuce
  • Sliced tomato
  • Sliced onion
  • Sliced jalapeño peppers
  • Bacon


  • Large Bowl
  • Step 1

    To install the grill grate, position it flat on top of the heating element so it sits in place, then close the hood.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, place all ingredients except the sliced cheese and buns and mix until fully combined. Portion the mixture into 11–12 balls, 4 ounces each. Then shape into patties, 1/2-inch thick. Place the burgers on a parchment paper-lined sheet tray and freeze for 20 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Select GRILL, set temperature to HI, and set time to 20 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating (preheating will take approx. 10–13 minutes).

  • Step 4

    When unit beeps to signify it has preheated and ADD FOOD is displayed, open hood and place burgers on grill grate, gently pressing them down to maximize grill marks. Close the hood to begin cooking.

  • Step 5

    Cook for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. Then top each burger with 1 slice cheese. Close hood and let cheese melt for 1 minute. Remove cooked burgers from grill.

  • Step 6

    To build the burgers, place burgers on buns and top with desired toppings.
