Kayem Foods, Inc., Chelsea, Mass., expanded its al fresco line with Gourmet Chicken Grillers, which are uncooked frozen chicken burgers developed to help al fresco Gourmet Grillers pattiesconsumers "BBQ better."

Gourmet Chicken Grillers are made with lean, skinless chicken meat, and go directly from the freezer to the grill.

"Grilling outside is the perfect way to gather friends and family, but preparation can be time-consuming, and many traditional options are high in calories, fat and sodium," says Sarah Crowley, director of marketing. "This new line is a stress-free, healthier option to pack flavor into your meals in minutes this summer."

Since Gourmet Chicken Grillers go straight from freezer to grill, there is no need to defrost or marinate. Like all al fresco products, Gourmet Grillers are made with high-quality all-natural ingredients and seasoned with only the finest herbs and spices.

The patties come in Sweet Italian, Caramelized Onion and Buffalo & Blue Cheese varieties, and are available in the freezer case at major grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $9.99 for a package of eight ready-to-cook patties.
