Galena Street Chicken Burgers w/Lime Mayo

I was sort of burned out eating the same old grilled burger on a bun.  Ground chicken was swapped for beef, onion and bell pepper was added and then Galena Street Rub furnished the seasoning for a mouthwatering chicken burger.

Penzy’s Galena Street Rub is a favorite seasoning of mine.  It’s an authentic Southern-style seasoning with hints of nutmeg, sage, paprika, a little red pepper and cayenne.  It’s great sprinkled on ribs, chops or chicken, and a perfect addition for ground chicken patties like these.

The piquant spicy lime mayo topping the burger revved up our appetites for sure…

Toast the bun on the grill, and Voila!

Galena Street Chicken Burgers w/Lime Mayo

Ingredients for burgers:

2 pounds ground chicken breast

1 sweet onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 teaspoons Penzy’s Galena Street Rub

1 teaspoon seasoned pepper

Ingredients for Lime Mayo:

½ cup light mayonnaise

2 teaspoons lime juice

½ teaspoon lime zest

1 tablespoon chives, chopped

½ teaspoon Penzy’s Galena Street Rub


In a large bowl, combine all burger ingredients, and mix well.

Form into 6 patties.

In a small bowl, whisk mayo ingredients thoroughly.

Refrigerate until serving time.

Heat grill to medium heat.

Cook patties about 15 minutes, turning once, until cooked through.

Place on buns and top with spicy mayo.



  1. Well doesn't that look delicious! We've got some leftover chicken breasts from last night...and I think that mayo recipe would be killer on some chicken burgers for tonight :) Always can count on a delicious idea from you Pam!!!

  2. Pam, I don't know why I never think of chicken 'burgers' but it's probably because its hard to think beyond the norm when thinking burgers. These burgers look good and the spicy mayo and seasoning would make them pop! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  3. How fun. So healthy and I love the lime mayo.

  4. These look absolutely yumm Pam!!

  5. Hi Pam....
    ever time I click on your blog, I just want to grab one of those big ol' cherries and eat it. Geez, cherries are expensive in the stores around here.
    I'll have to check out the Penzy's Galena Street Rub. I've not seen it around here...looks tasty!

  6. This does sound better than a plain old burger! The lime mayo would be good on lots of things.

  7. Galena Street is one of Penzey's spices that I have yet to try. Now I need to take a trip to their store :) I love how many of Penzey's spices take names from parts of Milwaukee and Wisconsin.

    Your chicken burger and lime mayo sound delicious!

  8. I love homemade chicken burgers. They are fantastic. Yours looks killer good.

  9. Pam,
    Your chicken burger looks amazing, especially with the spicy Mayo. We always make turkey burgers, but will have to try the chicken burger.

  10. Tasty and savory! The lime mayo sounds delicious to go with that chicken burger. Yum!

  11. Every time I visit your blog... I leave HUNGRY! : ) The lime sauce sounds amazing! I'm gonna throw some chicken in the slow cooker this morning.. easy dinner!

  12. I love chicken burgers Pam! These look so very good!

  13. This looks delicious! The spice rub sounds so flavourful with all the wonderful spices! I can imagine how tasty this burger is!

  14. We haven't had beef here in such a long time! I just baked a chicken meat loaf, and it was delicious with some Italian seasoning added.

  15. These look delicious. I've not heard of this rub before, but I will be looking for it. Definitely could use some new ideas to perk up my cooking.

  16. Great way to change up the pace and break the burger monotony.

  17. I've made garlic mayo and had lemon but never lime. What an interesting idea. Thanks.

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.
