Chipotle Chicken Burgers

I've been doing lots of cooking ever since we moved here and currently have lots of prepared foods in the back freezer in the garage. Items I've prepared and frozen:

Soups, pasta sauce, lasagna, chicken/eggplant parmesan, chili, tamales, twice baked potatoes and chipotle chicken burgers (my own recipe invented during preparation for last nights dinner). The chicken burgers were very tasty and a big hit so I wanted to share the recipe.

Chipotle chicken burgers:

Ground chicken (I used approx. 2 pounds)
Bread of your choice (not toasted) crumbled into small bits, 2-4 pieces
2 eggs
1-2 tablespoons chipotle chili
(the secret ingredient- awesome and smokey)
1-2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes diced
2-3 tablespoons feta
1 heaping tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Mozzarella for topping patties

Mix all ingredients (except the mozzarella) together and form into patties. Spray a cooking sheet and set patties in. Bake for 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until done. Top with mozzarella the last 5 minutes and let melt.

Serve on a bun with mayo, mustard, ketchup, avocado and lettuce or your choice toppings. I grilled up some onion and peppers to add as well. These will freeze well too so make extras. Enjoy!
