Tips for Making Chicken Hamburgers

Making burgers from ground chicken can be a sticky situation! Mix up the ingredients with a silicone / rubber spatula to avoid getting your hands covered. Then when you are ready to form the patties make sure you have a bowl of fresh cold water near you. Having wet hands makes it easier to work with the chicken mixture!

  1. Lexi these looks absolutely delicious!! I’m a HUGE fan of salmon burgers, omg I can’t get enough of Trader Joe’s Salmon Burgers. They’re soooo good. I grew up eating turkey burgers, but oddly enough, never chicken burgers! Now I have something new to try 🙂

  2. I tried these burgers and they were above delicious!! They are packed with flavor and very succulent. Instead of wrapping them, I just served them on a plate of lettuce with tomato, avocado and the sauce on the side. Most surprisingly was how easy they are to make and that they’re not that high in calories. Will definitely become a repeater in my household!

  3. Hello, I was in search for a different burger with a spicy sauce and Moroccan chicken burger is just what I was looking for. It is perfect for dinner be it a weeknight or a weekend. The special sauce along with it enhances the taste of the burger and makes it taste delicious.

  4. It is only 9:30 in the morning and my mouth is already watering for dinner.
    I can’t wait to try this Chicken Burger! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi, I am on the keto diet and want to make this keto friendly. I have made this recipe many times before being on the diet, and is a huge hit. Is there anything I can use instead of carrots? I have been avoiding carrots on the diet due to the carbs in them. Would green onions or bell peppers work at all? Thanks in advance!

  6. My husband and I made these two nights ago and WOW! Can’t stop thinking about how delicious they were so they are on the menu again tonight! The ginger in the burgers really stands out in a great way – makes the burgers extra unique. We made the sauce with Greek yogurt instead of mayo and used fresh dill (and a little more of both the dill and mint because we don’t hold back when it comes to fresh flavor!) – and it was so so good. Can’t wait to enjoy again tonight 🙂

  7. Whew! These are YUMMY! The flavors just meld together so nicely. I did add an egg and some breadcrumbs to make sure they stayed together well. I wrapped them in iceberg lettuce and that worked well. I will definitely make them again.

  8. I made these last night and they were delicious! There is so much flavor in these burgers but yet they were so easy to make. I don’t love working with ground chicken but with Lexi’s tips it wasn’t too messy! I even split one up today and had it on a salad.
