Chicken BurgersPosted in : Cooking on by : Sheila Tags: blue cheese, burger, cast iron, Chicken, chicken breast, ground chicken, pan fried
Have you ever had those coated chicken burgers from the grocery store….the broke student, these are really cheap, in a bag chicken burgers? Yeah, these aren’t those.
I really wanted burgers for dinner tonight, but not beef. I knew there was ground turkey in the freezer, but it was just a small package and there was only one. No leftovers that way! So I took out two chicken breasts, also.
I made them both the same, but the chicken burgers needed an extra step & one extra ingredient.
- 2 chicken breasts, chopped in a food processor, or diced crazy small with a knife or two
- 1-2 TB of Dijon mustard
- 4-5 TB of blue cheese, or cheddar, or mozzarella…just add some cheese
- 2 TB of finely chopped onion, white or green, whatever you have
- 1/4 cup of oatmeal….the chicken was quite wet, I decided it needed a binding agent. I didn’t add this to the ground turkey.
Mix it all – gently. Form into patties. My chicken made 4 burgers, probably about 1/4 pound each. I got my hands wet to make the patties and you may want to, as well. The meat sticks with determination to hands and the water helps.
I cooked these (actually, my son cooked these) in a cast iron frying pan….stove top real estate was in short supply because I was using the air fryer at the same time, otherwise I would have used the cast iron grill and done all 8 burgers at once. The turkey also made 4 burgers. 🙂
I made some burger buns and some buffalo cauliflower bites (which is why the air fryer was taking up real estate on the stove top).
Yes, I put some avocado on there, because I had some and it was good! Looking at it now, I really think a pickle would have been awesome on there, too.
