Ground Chicken Burgers

Ground Chicken Burgers are the new Turkey Burger! We all know about the healthy turkey burgers, but this chicken burger recipe is giving it a run for its money.

There’s so much flavor packed into the actual chicken patty that you don’t need to add much else to be ready to eat. We did a simple pesto mayo (A MUST), fresh spinach, and red onion. That’s it!

You could add cheese if you want, which you know I never feel is a bad idea, but it’s not necessary. There’s feta in the burger baby! These just taste like a bright and vibrant summer day. Day dreaming while eating dinner!

I was feeling extra lazy so I just baked up some pre-made fries as a side. We love Alexia Rosemary Fries (not sponsored, just a personal favorite). They go with EVERYTHING and I love the little extra punch of flavor. They paired perfectly with these Ground Chicken Burgers! I dipped them in extra Pesto Mayo, and it was amazing.

Is it a Chicken Sandwich or Burger?

A little google research tells me that a sandwich is served between two slices of bread, while a “burger” is served on a bun. So yup, these definitely qualify as chicken BURGERS! You can call it whichever you like, but I think we’ll all agree it’s totally delicious!

Are Ground Chicken Burgers Healthy?

Using ground chicken instead of ground beef is a healthier way to make a burger. Of course we loaded ours with feta cheese, but that’s okay. They’re still under 400 calories. Everything in moderation!

How do you make the Pesto Mayo for this Chicken Burger Recipe?

The Basil Pesto Mayo is a simple combination of mayonnaise, freshly chopped basil, and sour cream. It’s beyond delicious and a must make addition to these Chicken Burgers!

If you need me I’ll not only be pretending it’s summer, I’ll also be pretending I’m laying out by a pool. And that I have skin that doesn’t burn in 50 degree heat. Enjoy!
