Natasha is my eldest daughter, and her eyes light up when I announce we’re having these for dinner. While my husband and I eat 1 or 2 each, she easily finishes at least 3! The onion can be finely chopped, but with three kids, we prefer grating it so as to hide it. I usually serve these with mashed potatoes and Caesar salad for a very comforting meal! Extra-lean ground chicken can be substituted with ground turkey with great results.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound extra-lean ground chicken
  • ½ cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs, divided
  • ½ small onion, finely grated
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Mix ground chicken, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, onion, egg, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Moisten hands and shape chicken mixture, 2 tablespoons at a time, into flat, oval-shaped patties.
  2. 2 Spread remaining 1/4 cup bread crumbs into a shallow dish. Roll patties in bread crumbs to coat.
  3. 3 Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. 4 Cook patties in hot oil until deep brown in color on the bottom, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn patties and cook until other side is browned, 3 to 4 minutes more.

  1. These are great. I made this recipe x4 and cooked all the patties, let them sit to cool then stacked them into a ziplock and put them in my deep freezer. The next day I microwaved 1 minute each side. While this recipe replaces my need for the Don Lee chicken burgers (That costco isn't - Read more ...
  2. I didn t have regular hamburger buns so I formed mine into squares to make chicken patty melts (I used Colby jack cheese) and they were delicious!!
  3. My husband is a huge red ,eat eater. He loves his burgers. Since I can no longer eat rad meat, he thought he would try this with me. It surprised me because he said he didn’t like chicken/turkey burgers fryer the last time I made them. He raved about these for days and even printed - Read more ...
  4. I’ve made this recipe a few times. Parties never fully cooked through in the pan. Tried partially frying and then baked them at 350. I finally figured out the best way—just bake. Grease the baking sheet and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Patties were perfect and not at all greasy.
  5. If I could give this 3.5 stars I would. Taste was fine but to get the wet mixture to kind of form into shape took the entire 1/2 cup of bread crumbs.
  6. Before seeing this recipe I used the exact recipe I use for making my Italian meatballs and the only differences between that recipe and this one is,I used a 1/4 cup of milk and fresh parsley. Also, I don't bread them. The next time I make them I'll add some sort of heat factor. I - Read more ...
  7. These were delicious. I used 2 chicken breasts which made 4 solid patties. I used about a teaspoon of salt, only used a quarter onion, personal preference. My 7 year old liked it! With cheese, mayo, Dijon mustard, spinach lettuce and tomato on a pretzel bun :)
  8. excellent. didn't change a thing.
  9. I added a heaping teaspoon of Stacey's Hamburger Seasoning (the recipe is also on this site) to the burger mixture. I also let the mixture rest for a few minutes burger mix before forming into patties. These patties were not bad--I think the added seasoning helped them. These were extremely economical and simple to make.
  10. Really good. I used a whole onion instead of a half. I used sweet red chili sauce as a condiment and they were great. My wife loved them too.
