Homemade Chicken Burgers

One of life's little pleasures is watching your grown children do things their own way. Our kids all grew up with family, cooking and food so are true foodies. What I like about visiting the kids is getting a new perspective on food or a new way to use a familiar ingredient. I like that I'm always learning new tricks and techniques simply by watching what and how the kids cook it.

The kids picked up pre-formed breaded chicken breasts patties at Maple Lodge Farms. This is not a product that I am very familiar with. They were preformed patties of chicken breasts that were breaded. Cooking was as easy as putting the frozen patties on the grill (medium heat) then grilling just until well defined grill marks formed. The patties were turned and left until well defined grill marks formed on that side.

Pictured are the chicken patties after grilling showing the lovely grill marks. The patties could easily be warmed on an indoor grill, in a skillet or in the oven. Each will give slightly different results with the outdoor grill giving the most flavour. It ads that hint of smokiness to the patties.

The chicken patties were perfect for chicken burgers. Now these are not the kind of chicken burgers you would get at a fast food restaurant even though they started with pre-formed breaded patties. I was quite surprised! Toppings included lettuce, mayonnaise and cheese. The chicken burgers were served with a side of Kettle Cooked Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar potato chips. This made for a lovely, yet easy to prepare meal.

If you want to duplicate this meal at home look for pre-formed chicken patties made with chicken breasts free of any fillers or preservatives. An alternative is to bread your own chicken patties using plain or seasoned breading mix like homemade shake & bake. To make homemade chicken patties use a mallet to pound boneless, skinless chicken pieces into half inch thick pieces. Bread then grill.
