Chicken-Apple-Bacon Burgers

Chicken-Apple-Bacon Burgers (Adapted from CL)

3 bacon slices
1/4 cup chopped red onion
16 ounces boneless/skinless chicken breast, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and cut crosswise into 8 slices
4 hamburger buns, toasted

Preheat grill and lightly oil the racks.

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon and crumble. Add onion to drippings in pan and cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly.

In a food processor, add chicken and pulse just until it is coarsely ground.

In a medium bowl, combined chicken, bacon, onion, sage, salt and pepper. Evenly divide chicken into 4 portions - shape each into about a 1/2" thick patty.

Place chicken patties on the grill and cook until they are done, about 5 minutes on each side. Place apple slices on the grill and cook 1 minute on each side. Assemble the burgers by placing the cooked patties on the bottom bun, adding a couple slices of the apples and then placing the top half of the bun on.
