Citrus Pepper Bacon Chicken Cheeseburgers

Citrus Pepper Bacon Chicken Cheeseburgers because Ken loves cheeseburgers or anything with cheese and bacon. Patti wanted to make the burgers a little healthier and she loves chicken. These were super simple and full of flavor. A definite for our next camping or tailgating adventure.

I think the Briggs Citrus Pepper Seasoning just set these on Fire! They were so good that I have already called some friends to come over for dinner next week!!! And it’s so easy to do…

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Cooking Directions: Citrus Pepper Bacon Chicken Cheeseburgers

If you are going to do the Citrus Mayo do it first and put it back in the fridge to get happy.
Preheat the Grill Grates to 400* (205c).

Spray the chicken with a cooking oil to help with browning, we use “Duck Fat” (Our Store) and generously sprinkle Briggs Citrus Pepper seasoning on both sides of chicken. That’s it, you’re ready for the grill.

For these we just bought the frozen package of chicken breasts because they are about the right size right out of the bag for a burger. That said they are all different sizes and their cooking times will vary a bit. So, you want to cook by temp rather than time. You want to look for a temp around 165* (72c) for these. Add your cheese the last few minutes of your cook. I did these for 20 minutes with a quarter every 5 minutes and flipping then at 10 minutes.

When your chicken reaches an internal temperature around 165* (72c) pull it off. U.S.D.A. safe is 160* (70c). Keep in mind that the meat will continue cooking for another 5 to 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer (Our Store)for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also, you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke, so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What You Love,
Ken & Patti
