Ground Chicken Recipe For Chicken Burgers

I found this delicious Ground Chicken Recipe for Chicken Burgers and my family love it - especially the kids. It's full of flavour and lower in fat than a regular beef burger because it uses ground chicken breast meat which contains minimal fat. Get the kids to help you assemble the chicken burgers and even make their own sauces. The recipe contains optional extras like cheddar cheese to enclose in the chicken burger patties and chilli powder for an extra spicy taste.

  • oil, for cooking
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 750 g (1 1/2 lb) chicken mince
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons chopped red chilli (optional)
  • 3/4 cup (60 g/2 oz) fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh lemon thyme or chives
  • 6 slices of Cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 30 g (1 oz) butter
  • 1 -2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 6 crusty bread rolls
  • lettuce, tomato, extra sour cream, pickled cucumbers and sweet chilli sauce, to serve

  1. Fry the onion in a bit of the oil over medium heat until golden. Drain the onion on paper towels and cool slightly.
  2. This is where it gets messy. Wash you hands thoroughly and then get ready to mix with your fingers. In a large bowl combine the onion, chicken mince, paprika, chilli, breadcrumbs, beaten egg, lemon thyme and some salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix it well using your hands. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and shape into round balls. If you want a cheese burger then press a piece of cheese into the centre of each ball and mould the mixture to completely enclose the cheese. Flatten the balls slightly and shape to make chicken burger patties.
  3. Heat the butter and 1 tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan. Add the garlic. When the mixture is foaming, add the patties, pressing with a spatula to flatten slightly. Cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side, or until the patties are nicely browned and the meat cooked through. If you put cheese in the middle then the cheese should be melted.
  4. Cut the bread rolls in half. Toast if you prefer and spread with a little butter. Fill the rolls with lettuce and tomato slices, a chicken patty, sour cream, some pickled cucumbers and sweet chilli sauce.
