What Is A Chicken Burger?

A burger is a type of sandwich made using dome-shaped burger buns. The sandwiched part of the burger is called the patty. It can be anything, including chicken. You use this chicken as minced, which means finely chopped. You can also use slices of chicken or shredded chicken as the filling.  Along with this chicken patty, other veggies are also added, such as lettuce or onion, for taste and crunch. Enjoy this juicy burger with tomato ketchup or any side dressing you like.

Recipe For Chicken Burger

Read and follow the steps below to make mouth-watering chicken burgers:

  • Take a bowl and add lemon juice, egg, and water. Beat the mixture with a fork or whisker until all the ingredients are mixed properly.
  • To the above mixture, add onion, thyme, and bread crumbs. Ensure that the onion is finely chopped; otherwise, your patty will not hold its shape properly. 
  • Mix them well, and then add pepper and salt as required. Check seasoning at this stage. 
  • Add the minced chicken and mix it well to distribute the ingredients evenly. 
  • To mix it properly, it is recommended to use your hands. Knead in all the spices in the chicken so that it gets all the seasoning. 
  • Once mixed properly, keep it aside for a few minutes to marinate. 
  • Make two patties using the above mixture.
  • Grease a grill with butter and put the patties on top. 
  • Set the microwave to 165 degrees for ten minutes. 
  • Grill both sides until charred. The timing to cook chicken patties will depend on how you like your patties cooked. 
  • Cut the buns into halves evenly, butter the cut part, and grill it for two minutes for that additional crunch, or you can keep it as it is. 
  • Take the buns out, and put sauce on the surface of both parts of the bun. You can use mustard sauce or barbecue sauce, or any sauce of your liking. 
  • Put lettuce leaves on the bottom part. 
  • Put patty over it. 
  • Next, add circled onions and tomatoes. 
  • You can also add another lettuce leaf on top of it. 
  • Put the upper part of the bun, and there you go, your chicken burger is ready.

  • You can use mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, pickle, etc. while assembling your burger
  • Marinade chicken patty mixture for an hour will make patties juicier and more flavourful.
