These buffalo chicken cheeseburgers are a mix between a buffalo chicken sandwich and a juicy cheeseburger! If you are a buffalo chicken fan, you are going to love these burgers!
Obsessed is the only word to describe our feelings towards these Buffalo Chicken Cheeseburgers – we are absolutely obsessed with them. Do you ever have a recipe that you make that you are just SO pleased with? That was these burgers for me. I had never made a chicken burger before, so I was kind of nervous. But I had a vision in my head of what these could taste like and I figured I had to give it a shot. And they totally fulfilled my vision! These burgers are like a buffalo chicken sandwich meets a juicy cheeseburger – plus I made them in slider size, which is my favorite way to eat a burger! In fact, as soon as I finish writing this, I’m going out to buy more ground chicken so we can have these for dinner again tomorrow – that’s how much we love them!
My pictures do not do these Buffalo Chicken Cheeseburgers justice. I couldn’t figure out how to make these lil burgers look pretty. But I still had to share this recipe with you, pretty or not, because they are incredible. There are two main components to the buffalo chicken cheeseburgers – the burger patty, and the sauce.
One of my primary concerns with making a chicken burger is that I didn’t want it to be dry. Nothing is worse than a dry burger! So I used ground chicken thigh meat instead of ground chicken breast – a little extra fat helps to keep things moist. And, I added some sautéed onion and celery to the mix. Not only do the veggies keep the burgers nice and moist, but they also add a really nice flavor and texture. The other reason this burger patty is so delicious is that I put small cubes of diced cheese in the actual burger! The cheese gets all melty and makes the burger so flavorful! I got this idea from a spot that we just love in Naples, Florida – they have an awesome jalapeño burger that has pepperjack cheese right in the patty.
The sauce couldn’t be more simple, or more delicious. It is just Kerrygold cheese wedges mixed with Frank’s hot sauce. I want to spread this mixture on literally everything – it is SO good.
I made my buffalo chicken cheeseburgers in slider size, because I like a small burger – but you could make it any size you want!
