Chicken Burgers are a lighter yet equally satisfying alternative to traditional beef burgers. They are made with ground chicken and a blend of flavorful seasonings, then grilled to perfection. These burgers are great for a casual lunch or dinner and can be customized with various toppings to suit your taste.


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Lettuce, tomato slices, and onion slices for serving
  • Mayonnaise, mustard, or ketchup for serving
  • Optional: Sliced cheese (like cheddar or Swiss)
  • Optional: Avocado slices or bacon strips


  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, beaten egg, chopped onion, minced garlic, paprika, oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  2. Form the mixture into 4 equal-sized patties. If the mixture is too sticky, wet your hands with water before forming the patties.
  3. Preheat your grill, grill pan, or skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grill grates or pan.
  4. Place the chicken patties on the grill or in the skillet. Cook for about 5-6 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) and the patties are golden brown and cooked through.
  5. During the last minute of cooking, you can add a slice of cheese to each patty, if using, and cover the grill or pan to allow the cheese to melt.
  6. Toast the hamburger buns on the grill or skillet until lightly golden.
  7. Assemble the burgers: Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of each bun, followed by a chicken patty, tomato slices, onion slices, and any additional toppings like avocado or bacon, if using.
  8. Spread mayonnaise, mustard, or ketchup on the top half of the buns, then place them on top of the burgers.
  9. Serve the chicken burgers hot with your choice of side dishes, such as fries or a salad.
