4th of July is right around the corner! While standard burgers and hot dogs are the normal go-to option at a holiday cookout, I like to shake things up. This year I plan on adding some delicious Red, White & Bleu Grilled Chicken Burger to my menu!

Chicken burgers are really easy to prepare and can be super tasty when done correctly. You just have to have a few key ingredients and you’ll get a juicy and delicious burger every single time. But, it’s not the burger that is the star of this recipe… it’s actually the toppings. My Red, White & Bleu Grilled Chicken Burger includes the perfect combination of flavors and textures for a tasty and super festive meal that is sure to be a hit at your holiday gathering!

My recipe starts with delicious Grillo’s Pickles. Obviously, they are a must have topping but I also use the brine to flavor the chicken meat before it’s grilled. The result is fantastic flavor that just can’t be beat.
