How to Make Chicken Burgers
Burgers are usually bought ready-made from the supermarket or at the butchers. But, making them at home is much simpler, cheaper and healthier, as you know exactly what goes in them. They can be made with beef, pork, fish, or chicken etc.. This oneHOWTO article shows you how to make chicken burgers. Once prepared, you'll be eating them in a thousand different ways: in a burger bun, or accompanied by salad, pasta, potatoes and a host of other ingredients.
The first step to make chicken burgers at home is to prepare the chicken breasts. Remove any filmy skin and begin to mince them to the right consistency. You can do this with a meat grinder or, if you don't have one, using a knife, but you'll need to ensure that the pieces are very small.
Then chop and mince the garlic and, when finished, do the same with the onion and the parsley. Once you have all the ingredients ready, take a fairly deep bowl and add the minced chicken breasts. Season with salt and pepper to taste and add the garlic, onion and parsley. Mix all the ingredients together and the chicken meat will take on the flavor and aroma of these ingredients.
Now beat the egg in a separate bowl or dish and then add it to the chicken meat when ready. If you want to add some more spices to the recipe, you can do so at this point. Stir it all together well so that the egg covers all the chopped chicken and then knead it with your hands to form a homogeneous and compact mixture.
The next step is to add some breadcrumbs to the chicken burger mixture. Doing so will give you a more consistent texture and ensure that the chicken burgers don't fall apart when you go to put them in the frying pan. Continue mixing with your hands until the breadcrumbs are fully integrated into the mixture.
When the mixture is ready, all that remains to be done is to create burger shapes with the mixture. To do this, take a portion of minced chicken, shape it into a ball and then flatten it with a spatula and tidy it up a little with your hands until you get the desired shape and thickness. Note that you can also buy molds for making homemade burgers, so if you want them all to be the same size, this may appeal to you. Repeat this procedure until you have used all the mixture.
Finally, fry the chicken burgers in a pan with a little olive oil or cook them on the grill, whichever you prefer. You can eat them in a bun, accompanied by a salad or some chips, according to your preferences.
