Chicken Burger

Chicken Burger Patty Made with Fresh Chicken with Home Made Garlic Chilli Sauce

Chicken Burger made at home.

  • 40 mins
  • Serves 4
  • Medium



Juicy Chicken burger is loved around the world. And the key to making a juicy burger is to make sure to use freshly minced chicken, soft sesame buns and freshly ground spices. My recipe here uses some Indian spices with freshly minced garlic and ginger giving it just the right amount of heat.

Cooking the chicken patty right is important so never press or squeeze the patty as it will make it ooze out all of the moisture inside. So to keep the chicken soft and moist cook on high heat on both sides for 30 seconds then lower the heat and cover and cook them.

Serve Garlic Chilli sauce and fresh potato fries along with the this juicy chicken burger.

Take the chicken mince a big mixing bowl and add in the chopped ginger and garlic, salt, chilli flakes, chopped green chilli, grated cheese, garam masala, oil, mint and coriander leaves. Mix this well.


To make the patties, portion out the mixture according to your choice of size, press to remove any air bubbles and roll into balls. Shape the balls into a patty,. Make sure the diameter of the patty is a little bigger than that of the buns as the patty will shrink during cooking.


To cook the patties, heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Heat the pan well before placing the patties on it. Flip the patty once it is half way cooked and develops a brown colour at the bottom. Cover with a lid and lower the heat. Cook until the patties are well cooked till the center. Remove from heat and keep aside to assemble.


For Chilli Garlic Sauce

To make the garlic sauce, take the mayonnaise in a mixing bowl and add in the cheese spread, chopped garlic, milk or water, chilli flakes and kasoori methi. Mix well and reserve for assembly.


For Assembling the Burger

Start by cutting the burger buns from the center. Spread butter on each side of the cut. On a hot pan brown the buttered side of the buns by pressing slightly until the buttered side is crispy. To assemble but the bottom half of the bun and spread a little mustard. Next, put a salad leaf on top of it and then the chicken patty. Top it with sliced onions, tomatoes, gherkin, garlic chilli sauce and cheese slice.


Finish by topping up with some pepper and the top half of the bun. Serve with some extra garlic chilli sauce and a side of French fries or potato wedges.


Tips and Tricks

Always get you chicken minced in front you from the butcher. It’s always better to have the chicken leg minced as it remains juicy for longer.
Keep the patty a little thinner than you require as it lifts up as the patty is cooked and the chicken shrinks.
Always cook chicken first on high heat, to seal the juices inside, and then on low heat to cook the chicken through.
Be careful with the height of the burger, flatter burgers are easier to eat and bite into.
Toast the insides of the burger to make sure they do not get soggy.
You can use a long skewer stick down the center to keep the burger in place.
During bird flu, if you are using chicken, then make sure that you cook it to above 65C internal temperature.
Always wash hands after processing raw chicken to avoid cross contamination of microbes.
