    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    3 cups packaged coleslaw mix
    1/2 cup prepared ranch salad dressing
    1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
    1 tablespoon butter or margarine
    1/2 cup minced onion
    1-1/4 pounds ground chicken
    1/2 cup shredded zucchini
    1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    4 kaiser rolls, split


    Heat grill.In a medium bowl combine the coleslaw mix, dressing and lemon
    peel; cover and refrigerate 30 mins.Melt butter in medium skillet over
    medium-high heat.Add onion and cook 4 to 5 mins or until browned.Remove
    from heat; cool.Cover a cookie sheet with plastic wrap. Lightly mix
    chicken, cooked onion, zucchini, cheese,salt and pepper in large bowl
    just until combined.Drop 4 equal mounds of chicken mixture on prepared
    sheet.Cover with another piece of plastic wrap and gently press mounds
    into four 1/2-inch-thi patties.Grill burgers over medium-hot* heat
    about 5 mins per side or until browned and an instant-read meat
    thermometer inserted in side of burger registers 165 degrees
    F.**Meanwhile, grill rolls cut sides down until toasted, about 1 min.
    Arrange burgers on bottoms of rolls. Divide coleslaw among burgers; top
    with roll tops. Makes 4 servings.

    *Note: To test for medium-hot heat, you should be able to hold your hand
    over the coals at the height of the food for 3 secs before you have to
    pull away.

    **Note: The internal color of burgers is not a reliable doneness
    indicator. Ground chicken burgers must be cooked to 165 degrees F. An
    instant-read meat thermometer ensures perfectly cooked burgers. If using
    a digital instant-read thermometer, insert the tip of the thermometer
    into the food at least 1/4 of an inch for 10 secs.If using a dial
    instant-read thermometer,insert the thermometer through the side of the
    burger to a depth of 2 to 3 inches to get an accuae reading.
