Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Buffalo Chicken Burgers
(4 burgers)


1 lb. Ground Chicken
½ cup Celery, small dice
½ cup Bleu Cheese Crumbs
¼ cup Frank’s Buffalo Sauce, divided
4 Hamburger Buns, toasted
As needed Bleu Cheese Dressing (optional)
As needed Additional Frank’s Buffalo Sauce (optional)
As needed Favorite condiments (optional)


Combine the first four ingredients using only half of the Buffalo sauce and form into four patties.  Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up.  Remember to oil the grates before placing burgers on the grill.  Grill over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes, flip over, brush with part of remaining Buffalo sauce and continue grilling another 4 to 6 minutes.  Turn back over and brush with remaining Buffalo sauce and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer.  Use an instant read thermometer to determine doneness.  The temperature should be 165 degrees to eat.  You can remove the burger anytime after it hits 155 degrees.  The temperature will continue to rise after removing it from the heat.  So let it rest 5 to 10 minutes while you grill the buns.

Note:               You could use ground turkey if you can’t find ground chicken.
                           You can use ground beef if you’re not into something different.
                           It’s what meets your taste desires.

Note:                If you want to use more Bleu Cheese, top the burgers with a little
                           right after you brush the last of the Buffalo sauce on them.  Close
                           the lid and let it go that 1 or 2 minutes longer so the cheese will
                           melt a little.

Note:               The amount of Frank’s buffalo sauce can be adjusted for personal
                           taste to the heat it produces.  This recipe is considered mild.
                           You’ll find it in the hot sauce section of the grocery store.

Note:               You can do this year round indoors with Panini or George
                           Foreman grills too.
