How to make a stuffed burger with ground chicken

Start by preparing your buffalo cheese filling! In either a small bowl or in a sandwich sized ziplock bag whisk/mash together buffalo sauce, blue cheese, and cream cheese until fully combined. The mixture will be a little chunky do to the nature of the blue cheese. If you make the mixture in the bowl for ease of filling the burgers transfer to a sandwich size ziplock bag and cut off the tip to ‘pipe’ onto the chicken. (Or just scoop with a spoon).

Now to prepare the chicken burgers. Cover a platter/plate/tray with a piece of wax or parchment paper to keep the burgers from sticking to the plate. In a large bowl combine the ground chicken, egg, and quick oats until just combined.

Divide the chicken mixture in to 4 sections to make 4 burgers. From each of the chicken sections take 1/3 of the mixture and set aside, these pieces will be used to cover the filling.

Take the larger chicken sections and form 4 patties about 1/2 thick, beware if they are too thin the filling has a larger chance of coming out while cooking. Place on the wax paper.

Pipe or scoop 1/4 of the buffalo cheese filling onto the center of the 4 chicken patties.

Now take the remaining chicken and with each section form a smaller patty and cover over top the buffalo filling.

Gently press and smooth the ground chicken together sealing in the filling.

Transfer burgers to the freezer to rest 10-15 minutes while you pre-heat your grill to medium. Letting the burgers rest in the freezer to cool/freeze slightly helps transfer the burger to the grill. The chicken burgers are awfully soft and can easily puncture which causes the filling to come out, so I recommended to try not to skip this step if possible, I would also try not to let the burgers freeze for longer than 20 minutes so they don’t freeze solid.

Same philosophy with cooking over a medium heat. Because the burgers are stuffed keep the heat at medium (or even medium-low) to avoid the burger getting too hot to fast which would cause uneven cooking and for the filling to bubble out. Stuffed burgers just need to be handled a little differently than a normal burger. 

Once grill is hot transfer burger patties to grill over direct heat. Cook 7-8 minutes on one side. Flip and cook another 7-8 minutes, until burgers are fully cooked. Be very carefully when flipping burgers as to not puncture through the patties!

Stuffed Buffalo Chicken burgers cooking on a charcoal grill
I did these burgers on both a charcoal and a gas grill, if you have a gas grill it will be easier because it is easier to control the temperature. If you are using a charcoal grill be careful for hot spots and it might be harder to keep the grill a consistent temperature.

Serve chicken burgers on hamburger buns topped with romaine leaves, tomato slices, red onion slices, and a drizzle of ranch dressing (and extra buffalo sauce if you like it really spicy).

Side Dishes that would go well this Buffalo Chicken Burgers Recipe

FRIES! Is that a no brainer? Honestly I had made these with frozen fries from the store but Baked Wedge Fries, Baked Sweet Potato Wedges, or even Crispy Baby Potatoes are easy to make.

Salads, keep it fresh and choose a salad like my Healthier Bacon Ranch Potato Salad (how perfect for a buffalo burger right?!), Marinated Chickpea Chopped Salad, or Two Bean Mediterranean Salad

Or keep it healthy with vegetables like my Grilled Pesto Carrots or Roasted Broccoli.

TIPS & TRICKS

• if you are looking for more spice add more buffalo sauce to the burger after grilling

• ground chicken is soft, meaning that these can be tough to transfer when still raw, that is why I recommend a resting period in the freezer to get them just starting to freeze, the transfer like a charm and I never had an issue with the stuffing coming out this way

• use caution when flipping the burgers, this is another point in the process when the filling risks coming coming out

• chicken doesn’t brown quite the same as other meats, like beef plus since its leaner it is more likely to stick to the grill so I highly recommend greasing your grill

Notes

*You can also make the filling straight in a sandwich size ziplock bag or skip the bag and scoop the filling, either works great.

**Letting the burgers rest in the freezer to cool/freeze slightly helps transfer the burger to the grill, the chicken burgers are awfully soft and can easily puncture which causes the filling to come out, so I recommended to try not to skip this step if possible. Same philosophy with cooking over a medium heat, because the burgers are stuffed keep the heat at medium to avoid the burger getting too hot to fast which would cause uneven cooking and for the filling to bubble out.
