Cookbook:Crispy Chicken Burgers

Cookbook | Ingredients | Recipes

Although I did get the idea from the chicken patties served at my elementary school cafeteria, which everyone dearly dreaded, this is much better.


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • Poultry Shake
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Flour
  • 2 1/2 quarts peanut or canola oil
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. Form chicken into 4 equal patties, about 1/2 inch thick. Season on both sides liberally with shake. Set aside.
  2. Pour lemon juice into a pie plate and place flour in another. Dip chicken into the lemon, then dredge in flour. Tap off excess, then let sit 2-3 minutes.
  3. While chicken sits, heat oil in a deep fryer or cast-iron pot to 350 degrees F. Add chicken and cook until golden brown and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Drain on a wire rack.
  4. Serve chicken on buns with desired toppings.


My suggestions for toppings include crispy bacon, barbecue sauce (hopefully homemade), Sriracha, lettuce, spinach, tomato, mayonnaise, ranch, and of course ketchup and mustard.
