Instructions for Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Begin by mixing the ingredients in a bowl. Form into 5-6 patties, depending on desired size. For larger chicken burgers, make 4 patties.

These patties can be cooked on the grill, in a skillet, in the air fryer, or even baked in the oven – you choose! Here’s how to cook Buffalo Chicken Burgers:

  • Grilled

Place patties on a preheated grill and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until done.

  • Stovetop

Heat 1 tablespoon avocado oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Cook patties for 6-8 minutes, flipping halfway.

  • Air Fryer

Line the air fryer with parchment sheets and place patties in the basket. Cook at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. flipping the burgers halfway through cook time.

  • Oven

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place patties on a large, rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake for 15 minutes, or until done.

How to Make Your Own Ground Chicken

Did you know you can make your own ground chicken at home? This is a great way to save some money in your grocery budget! Begin with inexpensive boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of excess fat. Place the chicken thighs in a food processor and pulse until the chicken is the texture of ground meat. Use the ground meat immediately for these Buffalo Chicken Burgers or freeze for later use.

Can you Freeze Buffalo Chicken Burger Patties?

Yes! These burgers are perfect for making ahead and freezing. After forming the patties, place on a parchment lined baking sheet and flash freeze until just solid. Then transfer to a large freezer safe container or plastic bag. Buffalo Chicken Patties can be frozen for up to 6 months
