Description

This juicy chicken burger recipe has a quick prep time, is easy to put together, and is packed with all of the ingredients reminiscent of your favourite buffalo chicken wings. Celery, blue cheese and chicken make up the patties, and golden potato buns are the perfect compliment for this mouth-watering burger!


Ingredients

Scale
  • ¼ cup bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup milk of choice
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup blue cheese
  • 2 stalks celery, diced (approx ¼ cup diced)
  • ¼ tsp each salt & pepper
  • 2 Tbsp hot sauce of choice (I used Frank’s Red Hot) 
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 4 Portofino Golden Potato Bun
  • Lettuce and tomato to garnish
  • Other optional toppings: avocado, pickle, ranch dressing (try my homemade Greek yogurt ranch or use your favorite store-bought option) or mayo, more hot sauce to top if desired.

Instructions

  1. Add the breadcrumbs and milk to a small bowl and let the crumbs soak up the milk for 5-10 minutes (*This is the key to moist, juicy burgers! Soaking the crumbs in milk first prevents them from soaking up the juices from the meat).

Notes

  • Ground Chicken can be replaced with ground turkey, ground beef or any other ground meat of choice! These could also be made plant-based with your favorite plant based “ground” alternative. If wanting to make vegan, replace egg with a flax or chia egg.
  • Blue Cheese can be replaced with goat cheese, feta cheese or even grated cheddar or asiago cheese. You can also leave the cheese out if you prefer!
  • Celery can be replaced with grated zucchini or carrots or left out entirely.
