Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Summer is definitely looming...and summer = grilling = burgers! And I love a good burger.  Nathan makes a killer jalapeno burger for us every once in awhile (guest post??) but any kind of burger will do- turkey, chicken, veggie, black bean, and especially your classic beef.  In fact, we even stopped at a McDonald's for lunch on the road a couple of weeks ago and it hit the spot-- sometimes the processed junk just tastes good. 

These buffalo chicken burgers were awesome!  (I told you I had something buffalo chicken up my sleeve.)  So juicy and definitely had that buffalo ranch kick.  A nice change from your ordinary cheeseburger and something a little different to spice things up a bit (no pun intended).  Now go fire up that barbie!

Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Makes 4 burgers

1 lb ground chicken breast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tablespoon italian seasoning
1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
Ranch dressing + buffalo wing sauce for topping
4 hamburger buns

Preheat grill or skillet.

In a large bowl combine ground chicken, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, parmesan and buffalo wing sauce. Mix until just combined. Form into patties.

Grill or pan-fry patties until brown on both sides and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. In the last 2 minutes, place 1/2 ounce of cheddar cheese on each burger. Place burgers on buns and top with a drizzle of ranch and buffalo wing dressing.

  1. Very yummy! I may omit the salt next time since the buffalo wing sauce is high in sodium. Otherwise, they were perfection!

    1. So glad you enjoyed them! I just posted another recipe for green chili chicken burgers and they are equally delish!
