Often what turns people off from a homemade bbq chicken burger rather than a frozen one is they CAN be dry or crumble. Over the years I've used a few none traditional hacks to ensure a mouth-watering MOIST burger. .

Tip One: Put your patty in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden before cooking.

Tip Two: Don't use breadcrumbs. Instead panade some bread ie: soak the bread and milk (or milk substitute) for a few minutes. Once completed absorbed add to meat mixture.

Tip Three: No big chunks. If adding onion or cheese make sure it's diced finely. This helps the burger not crumble while cooking.

Tip Four: Push little pockets in the middle of each patty. This helps the burger to evenly cook. Tip Five: Have fun with it. Play around with seasonings and sauces (but make sure not to over sauce)

PREP TIME: 10 Minutes

COOK TIME: 15 Minutes

Total Time: Approx 25 Mintues


GRILL TEMP: 400 Degrees INTERNAL TEMP: 165 Degrees


Ground Chicken (1 lb)

Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup)

Garlic (2 Cloves, minced)

Italian Seasoning (1/2 Tbsp)

Parsley (1 tsp, dried)

Cajun Seasoning (1 tsp)

Mustard (1 Tbsp) Salt & Pepper (to taste)

Bread (of Choice, I used White Sliced)

Milk (1/4 cup)


First, prepare your ground chicken burger mixture. For this chicken burger recipe, using a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients except the bread and milk. You are going to use a panade (Panade: a bread and milk mixture agent to help thicken your patty). Using a small shallow plate, add you slice of bread and pour your mix over it. Let it soak in for a minute before adding to your ground chicken burger mix. Make sure to mix thoroughly with your hands or a spoon.

Next, make your ground chicken burger. I use my hands to grab a ball, or you can evenly measure by using measuring cups. Form a tight ball with your hands and then form into a patty. Lay on a piece of parchment paper on a flat moveable surface so you can transfer it to the refrigerator afterwards. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Whether you are doing a BBQ chicken burger or grilling it on a pan on your stove. This chicken burger recipe is for everyone. I personally BBQ'ed mine, as it always tends to be my preferred method. Preheat your BBQ to 400 degrees. I used my Louisiana Grills Kamado K24 charcoal grill. I poured my charcoal to one side of the basket as I cook these burgers indirectly on the other side.

Place your BBQ chicken burgers directly on your grill for 10 minutes and flip and cook the other side for another 5 minutes or until an internal temperate of 165 degrees. Have fun with your toppings and enjoy your delicious ground chicken burger.
