Zest the lemon, grate the garlic and chop the basil.
Combine ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, lemon, garlic and basil.
Form mixture into 8 patties. For easy portioning, flatten mixture on a sheet pan and use a knife to divide in 8 sections.
Once the patties are formed, use your thumb to make a dent in the centre of each patty. This helps the centre cook faster.
Preheat the barbecue to medium heat.
Grill patties with the lid closed for approximately 7-9 minutes per side.
Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness. It should read 165 degrees F.
Serve in toasted ciabatta buns with your favorite burger toppings.
