Barbeque Chicken Burgers
Serves 6
Time to fire up the grill and throw on some burgers!! Chicken or turkey make a great alternative to beef, and this Gena Knox recipe is a fantastic way to get started this season making world-class burgers that will have everyone looking for seconds – they're that great! Her coleslaw recipe below is awesome as well, but if you're in a rush there's nothing wrong with picking up something already made up from us!
