Top 3 Tips for Perfect Ground Chicken Burgers
So how did we achieve juicy, ultra-moist chicken burgers? We have a few tricks up our sleeve!
Add Fat: ground chicken is an extremely lean meat to work with which oftentimes can result in a dry outcome. By adding some diced butter, you are adding just the right amount of fat to make them moist.
Moisture: you’ll notice that we added a few different liquid flavors into these burgers and this helps add moisture. Worcestershire sauce and pickle juice both help with this,
Don’t Overcook: always have your meat thermometer on hand so you don’t overcook. Sometimes with chicken burgers, it’s hard to eyeball the doneness with the color of the meat, so a meat thermometer is the most precise way to make sure you don’t overcook.
We swear by using a meat thermometer when cooking any cut of meat. The Thermapen is our go-to meat thermometer that works every time.
Every burger needs a secret burger sauce and we’re about to share ours. So, I guess it’s not that secret anymore!
Our burger sauce is made with the base of Greek yogurt and mayonnaise and had other flavors such as pickle juice, ketchup, garlic, and lemon juice, It’s quite life-changing if you ask us and you don’t want to skip this!
Combine all ingredients for our secret burger sauce in a medium bowl and mix to combine. Use in place of ketchup and mustard.

Serve your ground chicken burgers with any of the following sides for a yummy dinner!
Prepare the burger sauce by adding all of the sauce ingredients into a bowl. Mix ingredients together until combined. Place the sauce in the refrigerator for later.
Next, place all of the ingredients for the chicken burgers (except for the butter) into a large bowl and mix until everything is well combined. Then fold in the cold butter cubes.
Wet your hands with a little water and then use a ⅓ cup scoop to scoop the burger mixture into your hands. Form a ball with the burger mixture and then flatten the ball into a ½ inch patty. Place the patty onto a greased plate. Repeat until all of the burger mixture has been made into patties. We got 6 burgers.
Place a piece of tin foil on your grill grates and spray it with a generous amount of non-stick cooking spray. Then place the burger patties over direct heat for 4 minutes on each side.
Once the burgers are charred and firm, move them to indirect heat and place a piece of cheese on each burger and let the burger patties sit over indirect heat until the cheese melts (about 2 minutes) and the internal temperature reaches 165ºF.* Remove from the grill.
Let the burgers sit for 5 minutes.
Assemble the burgers. Place a piece of iceberg lettuce on the bottom half of the bun, followed by the tomato, avocado slices, and then the burger patty.
Then, add 1-2 tablespoons of the burger sauce to the top half of the bun and place that on top of the burger patty. Enjoy!
