    • 675g chicken meat, pulsed in a food processor until finely chopped

    • 1/4 teaspoon chicken seasoning
    • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate. Stir the soured cream, blue cheese and Worcestershire sauce together in a small bowl; set aside.
    2. Mix the chicken, 4 tablespoons hot sauce, celery salt, chicken seasoning, paprika and cayenne pepper together in a mixing bowl until evenly blended. Form into four 1.75cm thick burgers.
    3. Cook the chicken burgers on the preheated barbecue 6 to 7 minutes until well marked. Spray the uncooked top of the burger with cooking oil spray and flip the burgers over. Brush the cooked side with 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce and continue cooking until no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read at least 74 degrees C.
    4. To assemble the burgers, place a lettuce leaf on each roll bottom. Top with a burger, then spoon on 2 tablespoons of blue cheese sauce and 2 tablespoons celery. Place the top of the roll on top, then serve.

    This is a really nice recipe, it tastes better if you don't put in the avocado and the blue cheese and worcestershire sauce and celery  -  10 May 2014


    How do you completely change it...then rate it? It's not even the same recipe when your done! This is for almost every review I read...not all...but most. Turkey instead of chicken is one thing...but when you SKIP the blue cheese, and the bun and on and on and on...it's not the same! I have an idea...change it...then submit it as yours. Don't review a recipe you have ALMOST completely changed. And yes..my family of 7 and our friends loved it as is. Well done MELXCLOUD!  -  04 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We thought these were fantastic! Now, I must admit, I had been drinking prior to eating them, so my review may be a bit skewed. However, everyone else who ate them also commented multiple times how much they enjoyed them. I didn't have lettuce or celery (we were camping...too lazy to deal w/fresh produce. And, I hate celery.) and they were still awesome. I just prepped another batch to freeze for later grilling. In the latest batch, I added some minced garlic and parmesan cheese to attempt to recreate our favorite wing sauce (garlic parmesan) taste. I did freeze them prior to grilling as they are quite wet and I imagine would have been a little annoying to deal w/on the grill w/out freezing first. THANKS for a fantastic recipe (one that made me expand my horizons and try ground chicken, at that!)! EDIT: The addition of minced garlic and grated parmesan cheese was awesome! We loved them as written, and tweaked to mimic our favorite wing flavors. If we're out of dry blue cheese, I'll use a little light ranch mixed some hot sauce for a topper, instead. These are now ALWAYS in our freezer for quick meals. When we don't have buns, I serve them on Lender's frozen bagels (toasted).  -  24 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
