Keto Chicken Burgers [Juicy]

 

These keto chicken burgers are a delicious, great way to use ground chicken. It uses simple ingredients for the perfect low-carb chicken burger patties.

Keto chicken patties are a great alternative to the regular burger patty. It’s a recipe for healthy burgers for anyone doing the keto diet who is avoiding red meat.

It’s the perfect tasty chicken pattie to add to your keto meal plans.

Making easy meals while doing a ketogenic diet like these healthy chicken burgers is what makes keto sustainable.

The fact that these are bunless burgers the whole family will enjoy will make meal prep a breeze.

Sure using ground beef pretty much guarantees juicy burgers, but I found a way to ensure that these chicken burgers are juicy by adding butter to the patty ingredients.

It’s the easiest way to add both flavor and moisture to these chicken keto burgers. In fact, you could even swap out the ground chicken for ground turkey and keep those net carbs low.

I already have a recipe for keto chicken patties that uses leftover rotisserie chicken that you should also check out but this recipe uses chicken ground meat for an easy weeknight meal that is also very economical!

Add a slice of tomato, some red onion, and your favorite cheese for a ground chicken recipe that will make your tastebuds happy!

Trust me, you won’t even miss the hamburger buns because these are delicious burgers.

Did I mention that I also included our family’s burger sauce recipe? It’s a keto-friendly option that we like to place on top of the chicken burgers to amplify their flavor.

Serve these burgers as a main course and stop being tempted by fast food. Who says keto meals can’t be simple and tasty?

I chose to use pre-packaged organic ground chicken but you can certainly use a food processor to use only chicken breasts, chicken breast fillets, and even chicken thighs!

You’ll start by preparing the burger sauce by adding all of the sauce ingredients into a small bowl.  Then mix ingredients until well combined. Place the prepared sauce in the refrigerator for later. 

Next, you’ll cut the cold butter into small cubes. This is the secret ingredient that will keep your chicken burgers nice and juicy as they cook.

Once you cut the butter store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to add it to the chicken mixture.

In a large bowl, place all of the chicken burger ingredients and mix well until everything is combined.

Then, fold in the cold butter cubes.

Using wet hands, form 6 balls to make the patties. Flatten the chicken burgers into 1/2-inch patties.

You’ll need a little oil to cook the chicken patties. Cook the chicken burgers in a frying pan for about 4-5 minutes per side.

Once the burgers are cooked top with your choice of cheese if you like.

I’ve also included instructions on how to cook on the grill for those of you who might want to add these to your next bbq.

Serve your chicken burgers on a bed of salad greens or iceberg lettuce. Last but not least. top the chicken patties with a tablespoon or two of the burger sauce.
