BBQ Chicken Burgers

BBQ Chicken Burgers  Chicken

We love to make different types of  burgers in the summer. I’ve made lots of different beef and turkey burgers, but had never made a chicken burger. I’ve seen a few chicken burgers on different blogs, and really wanted to try them. For this recipe, I made my chicken burgers BBQ flavored. For the main seasoning, I used my favorite bottled BBQ sauce, Sweet Baby Ray’s. There are so many different BBQ sauces on the market. Just use your favorite for this recipe.

I made these burgers on my Cuisinart panini electric griddler. Because of the addition of BBQ sauce to the meat, the patties I formed weren’t very firm. For that reason, this recipe will not do well on a conventional grill, but will work in a grill pan, an electric grill like the one I used, or a George Foreman grill. You can also just fry them up simply in a skillet.

I topped my burgers with Muenster cheese and added more BBQ sauce to the bun. They were really good and so juicy. It was a great alternative to plain beef burgers.

    Angie these sound wonderful! I love that they’re super juice. That is the number one quality in my book for a good burger!!! My daughter took my George Foreman when she went away to college! I guess it’s time I got myself a new one!!!
