The BEST Grilled Ground Chicken Burger

Can you believe this is the first time I have ever made a ground chicken burger? You would think that Plain Chicken would eat a lot of chicken burgers, but this is the very first one. I can promise you this won’t be the last chicken burger. We LOVED these Crack Chicken Burgers!!! SO easy and they tasted great. Chicken Legs took one bite and couldn’t stop raving about these delicious chicken burgers! We ate them for lunch and leftover for dinner on the same day. We liked these better than regular beef burgers. I was shocked!

Ground Chicken Burgers Loaded With Cheddar, Bacon, and Ranch

These Crack Chicken Burgers are loaded with cheddar, bacon, and ranch dressing mix. Our favorite flavor combination. You are going to use the ranch dressing mix dry. Don’t make the ranch dressing. Just use the packet of dry mix. I used the whole packet of ranch mix. Feel free to reduce the amount of ranch mix to your personal preference. I know some people feel the ranch dressing mix is too salty. If you do reduce the ranch mix, you might need to add a tablespoon or two of bread crumbs to the ground chicken mixture. Ground chicken has a tendency to fall apart on the grill if there aren’t enough binders in it.

How to Cook Ground Chicken Burgers

We cooked these Crack Chicken Burgers on the grill. Make sure to spray the grill grate with cooking spray before putting the ground chicken burgers on the grill. They have a tendency to stick.

You only want to flip the burgers one time. Put them on the grill and let them cook 4 or 5 minutes and then carefully flip them. Let them cook an additional 4 or 5 minutes, depending on how thick the burgers are. You want to make sure the ground chicken burgers are cooked completely. Unlike ground beef burgers, you don’t want any pink in these ground chicken burgers. 

If you don’t have a grill, you can cook these on the stove or even the air fryer. They will cook approximately the same time as they cook on the grill, about 8 to 10 minutes.

What to Serve with Crack Chicken Burgers

We topped our Crack Chicken Burgers with more cheddar cheese and bacon. I don’t think you can ever have too much cheese or bacon!!! We also added some lettuce and tomato. Perfection! This really is the BEST burger! I can not wait to make these again! We love to serve these Crack Chicken Burgers with fries or roasted potatoes. They also go great with a salad or some pasta salad. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these Crack Chicken Burgers:

  1. Why do I think corn would be good in these?? Anyway I’m making them tonight!! They sound yummy!!

  2. Outstanding! Added a tad more cooked bacon. Served bun-less. Will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe.

  3. Love these!!!! Made them for dinner last night, on Brioche buns, they were awesome!
    Next time I’m going to make sliders!!!!!

  4. Just made these for dinner tonight.. wasn’t able to find just plain ranch dip but did find frank’s buffalo ranch for a spicy twist! Hubby and I both loved and would make again!

  5. We have made these numerous times since I found this recipe. They are excellent and a different twist to a traditional burger. I am going to try this with turkey since chicken is next to impossible to find at least in my area of Indiana since the covid 19 mess we are in.

  6. If you freeze these, do they need to be thawed before cooking? We had them last night and they were delicious! I froze the leftovers in patty form. Just not sure about the thawing. Thanks!

  7. I made these for dinner last night, they are so good!! I used a 3oz bag of real bacon bits instead of frying and crumbling my own bacon, and used a George Foreman grill to cook them. I used ranch dressing and a couple of sliced jalapenos on mine, partner used bbq sauce along with lettuce and tomato and we both really enjoyed them.
