  • Air fryer (or stovetop)
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Small Saucepan


  • 1 lb lean ground chicken
  • 1/4 onion shredded
  • 1 apple green, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning or just salt & pepper
Cranberry Apple Compote
  • 1.5 cup cranberries fresh, roughly chopped
  • 1 apple green, finely chopped
  • zest of 1/3 lemon
  • 3 tbsp sugar
Additional ingredients
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1.5 cup fresh spinach
  • 6 potato rolls
  • 6 slices provolone thin, light


  • In a mixing bowl, combine all burger ingredients and mix together until uniform. Form into 6 patties and cook to an internal temperature of 165F (air fry at 375 for 15 min or pan fry roughly 2-3 min per side). Once burgers are cooked through, put cheese slice on top so the heat from the burgers can melt it.
  • In a small saucepan, combine all compote ingredients and put over medium heat, stirring constantly. As the fruit heats up, it will release liquid. Cook over medium heat for 7-10 minutes, until bright red and slightly thickened. Set aside.
  • In desired, toast bread. Slather 1 tsp dijon on the top half of the bun, and cover the bottom half with fresh spinach. Put burger and cheese on spinach, top with cranberry apple compote. Close it up and enjoy!
