Preparation

In large bowl, combine green pepper, onion, bread crumbs, salsa, parsley, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper; mix in chicken. Shape into four 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick patties.

In nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; fry burgers, turning once, until golden and no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes. Meanwhile, heat buns.

Sandwich burgers in buns along with lettuce, cucumber and cheese.

Additional information : Substitution: Use ground pork or veal instead of the chicken.

Plan-Ahead:
Double chicken mixture to make another meal. Layer extra uncooked patties between waxed paper in airtight container and freeze for up to 1 month.
