Spicy Chicken Burgers

I don't like chicken wings, and never used to like anything spicy, so I always stayed away from Buffalo this or that. That was then.

Thank god my taste buds grew up :) I had seen Dani make buffalo meatballs awhile back, and after unearthing some ground chicken from the depths of my freezer I knew just what I wanted to do with it!

Buffalo Chix Burgers

I followed her recipe, cut in half for my 1/2lb of ground chicken. The only thing I did differently was to form it into two burgers instead of meatballs and grill it up! I still don't like blue cheese all that much, so I skipped the dressing and topped mine off with a thick slice of grilled Vidalia onion. Still had my carrot sticks and celery on the side! The burgers were great, very moist (from the hot sauce i think) and flavorful--I'll definitely be making these again!

A summer meal at it's finest, no matter what the weather!

Buffalo is one of my favorite flavors (or is it seasonings? Marinades?) of all time. I pretty much grew up with orange fingers and the need to run to the bathroom to wash my face and drink copious amounts of cool water - although I don't think cool water actually helped ;o) That said, I have never experienced it in the form of a burger, and it sounds much more appealing than those wings! I love the fact that you had carrot sticks and celery on the side ;o)

Missed you!

Oh yeah, if I showed these to Adam he may fall in love with you. Haha. I am SO making these... and soon! I don't like blue cheese either... I wonder if goat cheese would work. Mmm, goat cheese :)

I love buffalo flavored things and keep telling myself to use it more since I have a bottle sitting around. My favorite pizza at school was buffalo chicken pizza. I need to try these burgers though!

Isn't it funny how one's palate changes over time? I used to loathe mushrooms and then I discovered about two years ago that I absolutely love them and eat them in everything. This is an interesting recipe. You're making me think I want to do an adaptation of it as a mealoaf. Hmmmm.

OMG, I am totally going to make this - you know I like all things spicy! :D

My husband can't stand chicken burgers, so I'll make these for my lunch - thanks for the idea!

Jess said...

That looks really good. I have some ground turkey in the freezer, so maybe I'll use it for this.

Juliana said...

Yummie! Will try this for one of our summer BBQ, looks delicious. Love the simplicity of it.

No!! You don't like blue cheese with buffalo?! IT'S AMAZING! I love the addition of vidalia! Brilliant and beautifully plated!
I'm glad your taste buds grew up too :) I'm glad you're posting a little more again!

Elra said...

Then I would really eat this spicy chicken burger. Because a regular burger, I am not fond of it!

Adam said...

I don't dig spicy either, but going to school in Buffalo made me appreciate Franks Red Hot, which is not that hot, but it has that certain something.

I'm thinking it works great in chicken burgers if it's good enough for wings :)

burpandslurp said...

oh that sounds good! I'll take the blue cheese, though!

glidingcalm said...

Kerstin said...

What a yummy burger! I'm not a fan of wings either and people always look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them that!

Yay for lunch next week :)

Thanks for leaving such a nice comment, I always learn from others too.

I can't believe the amount of stuff we have in common as Upstate NY kids. Stewarts, Polish, there's a whole bunch there :)

My plum pierogi is one of the first couple of posts I did on my blog, prob about a year ago now.

Sagan said...

Nom nom nom :) I like how you've got them in pitas. It's kinda like a chicken burger cross with a chicken falafel. Hehe.
