1 pound lean ground chicken
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 cups finely chopped mushrooms
6 whole-wheat buns, halved
2 green onions, chopped
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup oat bran
1 1/4 teaspoons dried tarragon or 1 tablespoon fresh
1/2 teaspoon salt
Lightly combine chicken, mushrooms, onions, garlic, oat bran, tarragon, salt and pepper. Gently form into 6 evenly shaped patties, about 3/4-inch thick. Refrigerate patties for at least 1 hour before grilling.
Preheat grill on medium. Place patties on lightly oiled grill rack. Close lid and grill for 6 to 7 minutes per side or until an instant-read thermometer inserted sidewise into center of each patty reads 165°F; turn once.
During last few minutes of cooking, place buns on top rack of grill to warm. Fill each bun with a cooked patty; top with choice of garnishes. Makes 6 servings.
