Chicken Burger


Homemade burgers are better than store bought. At least you know what is inside your burger.  I made some chicken burgers for WB.   Made a dozen and stored them in air tight container in the freezer. Whenever he is hungry, he can just take out one and pan fried it himself and make a sandwich with the oh so delicious homemade burger :)   They are easy to make and you can add any flavors you like.   I  like to add fresh italian parsley , ground black pepper , onions and chilli flakes to the chicken burger.  Breadcrumbs is a must...it helps bind the mixture together and at the same time retains moisture in the mix.  I used chicken tenders to make these delectable and moist burgers.  I am not much of a meat eater but  WB  is , and he loves homemade ones. 

I packed them in air tight containers , place plastic in between each piece
so that the burgers doesn't stick together when frozen 

























I minced the chicken tender coarsely so that WB can feel 
the texture of the chicken as he bites into the burger

























pan fried the burger with a tsp of butter on a non-stick pan
and brush on bbq sauce when the burger is cooked and
ready to dish up. Serve with homemade bread ...yummy!

  2. Nice one! I prefer homemade one also, it's much more healthier. By the way, do I need to defrost it before frying if I've put in freezer for some time.

    1. Min, you dont need to defrost...straight from the freezer to our hot non stick pan... before you freeze them remember to line each piece with a plastic sheet so that it is easier to remove when frozen.... much much healthier to eat homemade ones :)
