Chicken Burgers on Garlic Bread

Who doesn't love burgers? But lets be honest...too many and we start looking and feeling like Morgan Spurlock on day 30.... Here's a pseudo-healthy burger that still tastes AMAZING. This Chicken Burger on Garlic Bread is from the cookbook Weight Watchers in 20 Minutes. (Its 7 points for those interested)

How Long Is This Gonna Take:
As the title of the book says, about 20 minutes. Yay! Quick and Easy!!

What You'll Need:
1 pound ground chicken (I actually used ground turkey as I find it more flavorful)
2 tbsp bread crumbs
2 tbsp Dijon mustard (I used this horseradish mustard M always buys to put on sandwiches)
2 shallots, minced (I substituted about 1/4-1/3 cup chopped red onion)
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 loaf french bread, cut into 4 pieces and then split (I bought rolls from the bakery instead-cheaper)
2 tsp EVOO
1 garlic clove, halved

What To Do:
1. Spray rack of broiler pan with non-stick spray and preheat broiler (I put mine on Low because High on my broiler sets my oven to "fire and brimstone")

2. Mix together chicken (turkey), bread crumbs, mustard, shallots (onions), thyme, and S&P in a medium bowl until combined. With damp hands, form into 4 patties

3. Place patties on broiler rack and broil 4 inches from heat, roughly 5-6 minutes on each side (Internal temp should reach 165F )

4. While burgers are cooking, brush the cut sides of the bread (or rolls) with oil. Broil, cut side up, alongside the burgers until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes (keep an eye on them...)

5. Once the bread is toasted, rub the cut side of the garlic over the toasted side of the bread. Create your burger. We topped ours with lettuce and white American cheese :)
