“I was on a quest to make chicken burgers using ground chicken. I found this recipe, and made a few minor revisions. I think they turned out perfect and the family loved them. Source: "How to Make Delicious Breaded Chicken Burgers" I made 5 large chicken burgers and they did not shrink upon cooking.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl: Add ground chicken, egg, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder together. Add in bread crumbs, milk, gently combine with hands. Set aside.
  2. In 3 shallow bowls: Bowl 1: beaten egg with water. Bowl 2: seasoned flour with salt & pepper, Bowl 3: seasoned bread crumbs.
  3. Using 1/3 cup measuring cup as a measuring tool, scoop out your burger portions.
  4. HINT: I found it was less messy to drop the scoop of meat into the flour, turn it over, lift it out of the flour, then form into patty.
  5. Coat both sides of chicken patty with flour, dip in egg wash, then pat into the breadcrumbs to coat.
  6. At this point I placed patties on a platter, covered with plastic wrap and put them in the fridge for 1-2 hours. This step is not necessary but can be done ahead of time. It will allow the flavors to develop.
  7. Panfry in (4 Tablespoons) cooking oil for about 4 minutes on each side. *add a little oil at a time, add more when you flip the chicken if necessary. Add more cooking time if your burgers are plump. Do not over cook or they will dry out.
  8. Serving suggestions: on soft buns with sliced dill pickles, mayonaise, honey mustard or spicy , tomato slices and lettuce or whatever you like.
