Healthy crispy chicken burgers are a fun dinner that the whole family will love.
Growing up, traditional burgers were my favorite food. Fast forward and I now try to limit my red meat consumption. These juicy chicken burgers are a great way to enjoy a delicious burger while keeping healthy!
Julian and I were in the mood for a treat. Instead of making a regular burger, I made these healthy burgers instead. They were incredible and did not taste like a healthy substitute at al! I highly recommend you make these to enjoy with friends and family!
They are a healthy take on a fried chicken burger. Brine chicken breasts in low fat buttermilk, then dredge in beaten eggs and a flour mixture to create the perfect coating. Then, it is air fried, baked, or pan fried to achieve the perfect crispy yet juicy burger!
These healthy chicken burgers do not use lean ground chicken. Instead, we use chicken breasts for our patties.
While full recipe instructions are available below, here are some tips to make the best chicken burger!
This recipe is a great choice for burger night because there are many ways you can cook your patties!
For all three cooking methods, you will know that your chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the center of the chicken shows an internal temperature of 165F.
My favorite buns to use for this healthy recipe is a brioche burger bun. You could also make this low carb and use lettuce leaves to create a lettuce bun. I also love using simple ingredients to create a slaw. It is a healthier alternative to high fat toppings such as blue cheese or a special sauce. This adds so much flavor I don't even miss cheese!
To make this delicious slaw, shred red cabbage and toss with lime juice fresh cilantro, and pinch salt. Let sit for a few minutes while the chicken patties cook. Add a little bit of light mayonnaise to your burger bun, then your slaw and patty. Enjoy!
