I don’t know why, exactly, but I have always hated chicken burgers. They could never reach the flavorful level of beef burgers, so I purged them from my life. But lately, I felt like I needed more chicken in my food life, so I reconsidered the chicken burger. Why not? Their a bit healthier than beef burgers and variety is the spice of life, right? But I had to get the recipe just right, or I would never eat one again.

I knew I had to make them juicy and full of flavor with a texture not as soft as a crab cake, but not as hard as some chicken burgers I tried in the past. And, of course, there had to be a sauce that complimented the chicken and tied the entire burger together.

My chicken burgers are packed with flavor, have a wonderful texture, and satisfy my burger cravings. Pair with a gluten-free hamburger bun, lettuce wrap, or alone. But, make sure you slather my Roasted Red Pepper Sauce on them! The sauce takes the chicken burgers to a level of deliciousness I cannot put well into words. You’ll just have to try it for yourself.

Recipe notes

  • This recipe uses ground chicken, not whole chicken pieces. My ground chicken was 100% breast and a combination of light and dark meat will work as well.

  • I make my own gluten-free bread crumbs, and if you don’t, you can find them in your local grocery store or on Amazon.

  • If you want to make your own gluten-free hamburger buns, find my recipe here.

  • The Roasted Red Pepper Sauce is linked in the ingredient list of the recipe and you can also find it here.

  • I cooked the burgers on a Blackstone Griddle, and they can also be cooked on the grill or in a skillet on the stove.

Suggested Tools

Mixing Bowl Set
Zyliss Garlic Press
Measuring Spoons
Stainless Steel Spatula

The Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs, gluten-free
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil, for cooking
  • Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, optional

The Process

  • Add the ground chicken to a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  • Crack and add the egg to the bowl. Measure and add all the rest of the ingredients to the bowl. Mix gently with a large spoon to combine. Use your hands for the final mix if you like.
  • Line a half-sheet pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Empty the ground chicken mix onto the sheet pan. Form into a rectangle, making sure it is even. Split, using a knife or your hands, into four equal parts. Roll each part into a ball and then flatten with your hand to make a patty.
  • Heat a Blackstone griddle or skillet to medium-high. If using a Blackstone or skillet on the stove, add about a tablespoon of oil to the pan. Place the chicken burgers on the Blackstone or in the pan. Press down on each patty slightly with a sturdy spatula. You don't want to smash them, though. When you start to see opaque color on the sides of the burgers, add a small amount of oil to each and then flip and press slightly with a spatula. Cook for a few more minutes, or until cooked through, and then remove.
  • Serve with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and on a gluten-free bun. Enjoy
