    Chicken Pesto Burgers change it up! Smoky chicken instead of beef, fresh tomatoes, spicy arugula, and zesty pesto instead of bacon and cheese!

    Ingredients

    • 5 hamburger buns (we used whole wheat, but brioche or Hawaiian would likely be good, too)
    • 1 lb ground chicken
    • 1 large tomato, sliced
    • 6 oz baby arugula
    • 1/2 cup traditional basil pesto
    • 3/4 tsp Kosher salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper
