Easy Homemade Chicken Burgers: They’re Crunchy, Chunky & Chicken!

Homemade Chicken Burgers by Krys, Naturally!

(Skip to the Recipe)

During the month of August, I honed down a couple of recipes that I’ve been working on for sometime now. On the sweet side, these are my SUPER easy homemade granola and most recently coconut macaroons (not so clean LOL!). I also perfected my clean chicken chilli reciple which will be coming out later this week. However, le pièce de résistance is definitely my easy homemade chicken burgers. It has been my most requested recipe, and it’s finally here! I’ve decided to nickname them my triple C burgers because they’re chunky, crunchy and chicken 🙂 Lame, but I’ll roll with it, and you should too!

What makes them chunky is the roughly chopped mirepoix (French for a mixture of celery, carrots and onions) that is added to the mix. The crunch comes from the panko coating that fries up to a beautiful golden crust and the clean/chicken part is the fact that I use extra lean ground chicken to make these burgers. I like to fry them on the stove top, but most recently have opted to bake them and then turn out just great! It freezes very well, can be part of breakfast, lunch or dinner and is definiately a great make ahead meal! Try it out today! As always, you can print out the recipe below and get cooking!

6

Get a clean, dry plate and pour about 1/3 cup of panko crumbs onto it. Take a small - medium sized ball of chicken burger meat and gently press it into the crumbs. Once you're happy with the coating, flip the burger around and do the same to the other side. Typically, I've been able to get 12 burgers from this recipe, however, my burgers are quite small (about 2" in diameter".

Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of your oil of choice to a frying pan on medium-high heat. Gently place 1 - 3 burgers into the pan and allow each side to cook for about 5 minutes each. If you're going to cook them in the oven, bake the burgers at 350° C for 30 - 35 minutes.

After frying the burgers, place them on a plate with a paper towel to drain off excess oil. To freeze the burgers for later, mould them into patties, and cover them in parchment paper. Next, add each individually wrapped burger to a large Ziploc bag and keep them in the freezer. Should last up to 2 months.
