  1. For The Burgers:
  2. Combine the ground chicken, jalapenos, scallion, cumin, salt, pepper & onion salt in a mixing bowl.
  3. Handle it as little as possible. Just enough to mix the ingredients and form 3-4 burgers.
  4. Oil and preheat your grill.
  5. Grill over med-high heat 5 minutes per side. Doing your best to not overcook them. You want them juicy (making them large helps). Allow them to rest for 2-3 minutes before serving
  6. For Bourbon Jalapeno Peach Sauce:
  7. Combine all ingredients in a small pot or saucepan except for ⅓ cup of the diced peaches.
  8. Bring mixture to a boil, lower to a simmer for 12-15 minutes until thickened, stirring often.
  9. Remove from heat, add in reserved diced peaces and set aside.
  10. When ready to assemble the burgers, add sauteed spinach to your bun, top with a burger, top the burger with some goat cheese, top the cheese with the peach sauce and serve!
To make sauteed spinach, heat 3 TBS grapeseed or olive oil in a large skillet, add in 4 cloves of garlic minced, sautee for 1 minute. Add in 1 pound of fresh spinach leaves. Keep tossing the spinach in the oil until spinach wilts and reduces. season liberally with salt & pepper. Remove from heat when all spinach has wilted (about 4-5 minutes of cook time total).
