  1. 1 Medium to Large Shallot
  2. 1/2 of a Medium Sweet Red Pepper
  3. 2 tsp. Chicken Stock
  4. 1-2 Tbsp Salted Butter or Grape Oil
  5. 1 Pinch of Salt
  6. 2 tsp. BBQ Rub or Seasoning
  7. 2 Pre-made Frozen Chicken Burgers
  8. 2 Slices of Deli-Sliced American Cheese
  9. 2 Gluten-Free Buns or 4 Toasted Slices of Udi's Gluten-Free Bread
  1. Peel and cut shallot and 1/2 a red pepper into strips. It'll look like an awful lot of shallots for 2 burgers, but as they caramelize, they'll shrink!
  2. Place shallots in a pile in a small pan on medium-low heat with 2 tsp oil (butter, olive oil, or grape oil), 2tsp of chicken stock, and a pinch of salt. The trick is to let them sit long enough to brown, but rotate often enough to keep them from burning. Liquids like oil and chicken stock help this process! After they've started to brown, turn the heat down to low.
  3. Add pepper slices to the opposite side of the shallot pan (or a second pan, if you like doing dishes) with 1 tsp of oil or butter.
  4. Place two chicken burgers into pan on medium-high heat with butter or oil to prevent burning, and sprinkle generously with BBQ rub or seasoning.
  5. The chicken burgers will cook for 5 minutes per side. As they're cooking, be sure to tend to the shallots and peppers, rotating as needed. It'll take a good 10 minutes or longer for the shallots to caramelize.
  6. Once the burgers and veggies are cooked, place a slice of deli-sliced American Cheese on top of each burger, and cover pan with a top to melt.
  7. Toast buns or bread slices lightly.
  8. Place burger on top of bun, add caramelized shallots and red peppers on top of the melted cheese, and add desired condiments (watch for ingredients like onion powder, if onion-sensitive).
  9. Enjoy!!
  1. Shallots act as a fantastic and flavorful onion replacement for migraineurs who're sensitive to onions. As far as chicken stock goes, we use my Mom's chicken broth recipe to avoid the MSG often found in store-bought broths.
