If your family is like mine, then they love a burger. The only thing they love more than a burger is a chicken wing! So what could be better than a Buffalo Chicken Burger? It’s the best of both worlds!
And since we aren’t doing any frying and using lean ground chicken it’s a healthy way to satisfy your chicken wing craving. It’s a meal you can feel good about serving to your family.
I’ve found that prepping the meat mixture and forming the burgers ahead of time is not only a time saver, but it also allows the meat to really absorb all the seasonings and wing sauce, which makes for a really flavorful burger.
You can let your imagination run wild when it comes to toppings and sauces. I decided to go with some lettuce for crunch and I whipped up a simple blue cheese dressing to really bring home the taste of an authentic chicken wing. A toasted sweet Hawaiian roll was the perfect finishing touch! But feel free to add tons of veggies and even some cheese to make this burger all your own.
I used my stove-top griddle to cook these since they are a more delicate burger. I just didn’t think they would hold up on the outdoor grill. The griddle worked great and they cooked up in no time. A sauté pan would work well also, just be sure to prep your pan with cooking spray so the patties don’t stick.
I served these Buffalo Chicken Burgers with a side of some homemade carrot fries and it was a great weeknight meal that my family really enjoyed!
