Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken breast
  • ½ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (vegan or regular)
  • 2 tablespoons minced onions
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Hamburger buns for serving
  • Lettuce tomato and red onions, for serving

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, add ground chicken, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, onions, parsley, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. Use your hands to combine all the ingredients together until blended, but don’t over mix.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates.
  • Form the mixture into 4-6 equal patties. Press down in the middle of each patty with your thumb to ensure even cooking of the chicken burgers.
  • Cook the chicken burgers on the preheated grill until the internal temperature is 165F, about 10 minutes total, flipping halfway through.
  • Assemble the chicken burgers with hamburger buns and toppings of choice.

Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 3 days in the fridge.
Freezing Instructions: You can also freeze patties before or after cooking for up to 3 months. To freeze, stack them between wax or parchment paper in a freezer-safe container. Alternatively, you can freeze them on a baking sheet, then place them all together in a ziplock bag. To re-heat, thaw in the fridge overnight and reheat on the stovetop or microwave.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
  • Instead of mayonnaise, you can use sour cream or one egg. I haven’t tried either of them, but they will help serve the purpose of the mayonnaise, which is to bind the patty.
  • Instead of breadcrumbs, you can use all-purpose flour. 
  • To make it gluten-free, you can use quick oats, almond flour or panko breadcrumbs.
