Healthy Chicken Burger

by - July 17, 2017

This is my mother-in-law's Chicken Burger Patty recipe.  I find it very healthy as it uses chicken breast and a lot of onion.  She often makes it for us for dinner to have with rice. I thought it would be just as nice in burger bun.  I used the Potato Bread rcipe for the burger bun.  Your kids will love this simple and healthy homemade alternative to junk food.

Yields:  3 burger patties


250g chicken breast
1/2 big onion
1 tsp soya sauce
½ tsp salt
2 1/2 tbsp corn starch
Pinch of black pepper

Tomato slices
Cheddar cheese slice
Mayonnaise (optional)

  1. Chop the chicken into a fine mince.
  2. Finely dice the onion.
  3.  Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well blended.
  4. Divide into 3 portions and roll each portion into a ball. Using the palm of your hand, press and shape into the burger patti, around 4cm diameter. Placing the patty on a piece of baking paper makes them easier to manage.
  5. Preheated a pan with cooking oil over medium-high heat. Place the burger patties in and pan fry them on each side for about two to three minutes till the sides are browned.
  6. To assemble:  Cut a bun horizontal into halves.  Sandwich a piece of chicken patty, a slice of cheese, few slices of tomatoes, some lettuce and spread some mayonnaise sauce between the burgers buns.  Serve, and enjoy.
