How To Make Breaded Chicken Burger

Print Friendly and PDF

Chicken burger!! Yes!! homemade breaded chicken burger!!. I am going to show you how to make breaded chicken step by step....right from grounding the chicken to making it into a pattie and assembling this awesome burger. So very healthy and so very homemade...perfect for kids and you!!

I am a cilantro girl...I love cilantro to bits...I love the flavor, and love the fact that it takes an Indian curry to the next level if garnished with it ...well atleast to me....I freak out if I ran out of it, so I stock it up....religiously...funny? eh? got the point, I am using cilantro in this yummy burger...because iceberg lettuce or salad lettuce as it is commonly known here is expensive....and to me the pauper alternative is cilantro.....okay you choose, cilantro or iceberg lettuce!!

This burger was born because of my kids obsession with chicken burger, that too ground breaded chicken kids cannot tolerate store bought fast food....and they loved me, bribed me, hugged me, irritated me, and nagged me to make a homemade version...and they won!

Only after I made this; it dawned to me that it is so easy and quick....homemade and healthy just follow my directions and get cooking.

Tip: With this chicken I got 2 large patties and 12-14 nuggets.
Author: Nisa Homey.
To mince: 
Chicken: 300 gms.
Garlic: 7-8 cloves.
Worcestershire sauce: 1 tsp.
Pepper powder: 11/2 tsp.
Shallots: 6.
Turmeric: 1/2 tsp, I added purely for its health benefits; you can skip it if you do not like it.
Egg: 1.
Bread slices: 2, crumbled.
Salt: 1 tsp or as needed.

For the crumb coating:
Panko or homemade breadcrumbs: 1 packet.
Cornflour: 1/2 cup.
Egg: 1, beaten.
Pepper powder: 1 tsp.(this is just to season the breadcrumbs).

To assemble:
1 bun.
1 tsp butter.
1 cheese slice.
1 slice onion.
1 tsp mayonnaise.
1 tsp tomato sauce.
Few cilantro or one iceberg lettuce or 1 baby spinach.

Put the chicken, garlic, cloves, pepper, shallots, salt, and Worcestershire sauce in the food processor

And pulse for a few minutes or until the chicken is grounded.

Crumble two slices of bread in a small dry grinder and pulse to get breadcrumbs or use 1/4 panko breadcrumbs. Do read this post on breadcrumbs.

Transfer the chicken into a large bowl, add the breadcrumbs and the egg.

I added 1/2 tsp turmeric powder....omit if you do not prefer it.

Knead everything together with hand; make large ball.

Flatten with both hands into a pattie. I made two patties one for the princess and one for the prince :)

The rest, I shaped into nuggets to freeze. Here we go, ready to bread up the patties.  Starting left; flour, breadcrumbs with pepper, beaten egg, and container to store/freeze; two patties and the rest.        

Dip the chicken into flour.

Then into the beaten egg.

Then into the breadcrumbs; if you want a really thick crumb coat you should again dip into egg then into breadcrumbs...but I didnt do it.

I did the same with the nugget shaped ones......I freezed them for later use :)

Meanwhile, cut the buns into half. Heat a pan...add butter, simmer the fire and toast the buns...oh! pls dont skip the is a must.

You can cook the chicken patties in two ways;
Shallow fry...

Or deep fry..

Ready to assemble!! spread a tsp of mayo on the toasted bun, then spread a tsp of tomato sauce.

Place the hot sizzling chicken patties, then the cheese slice (it will start to melt because of the heat of the pattie and the bun), top with onion slice, cilantro...cover with the other half of bun.

Yay, you have just made the best homemade breaded chicken burger. Serve immediately.
