This moist, delicious burger substitutes ground chicken for the beef. It still has all of the flavor with less fat. Add some Hot Buffalo Wing Cheddar, hot sauce, chilies and fresh cilantro for a grilled masterpiece!

1 yellow onion, diced
1 pound ground chicken (preferably ⅔ white meat plus ⅓ dark meat)
4 ounces Cabot Hot Buffalo Wing Cheddar, grated (about 1 cup)
2 red Fresno chiles, finely chopped
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon Cholula Hot Sauce, or more to taste
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
Whole grain buns, fresh spinach leaves and sliced cucumbers
