Buffalo Chicken Burgers

This recipe is number two in my Thirty for July Fourth cooking project where I’m making thirty recipes that would be perfect for your Fourth of July cookout.  I love almost anything with a buffalo flavor and these chicken burgers are no exception.  I’d never made chicken burgers before and I was surprised by how easy it was.  When I made the patties I was afraid they weren’t going to hold together on the grill but after a few minutes on the heat they definitely came together and made for a delicious dinner with grilled corn on the cob.

Happy Friday and happy grilling this weekend!


What to buy (makes 4 patties):

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup buffalo hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup crushed buffalo chips (or saltines or some other kind of chip/cracker)
  • 1 egg
  • cilantro, blue cheese and hot sauce for topping
  • optional: buns, lettuce and grilled corn on the cob

What to do:

  • combine chicken, spices, onion, hot sauce, egg, and crumbled chips, gently mixing so as not to overwork
  • divide into four patties about 3/4″ thick
  • grill the burgers for approximately 5 minutes per side, flipping once
  • serve hot, topped with blue cheese crumbles and hot sauce





  1. […] I’m not a fan of traditional Southern potato salad where mayonnaise or Miracle Whip are one of the main ingredients so these potato salads are good substitutes if you feel the same way.  The first one has a spicy kick with a buffalo flavor.  (I’ll eat anything with a buffalo flavor…like Buffalo Shrimp with Blue Cheese, Spicy Buffalo Chicken Soup, Buffalo Blue Cheese Dip, Buffalo Chicken Salad, Buffalo Chicken Burgers.)  […]
