Culinary Corner: Juicy Chicken Burger
Ground chicken burgers tend to often be dry, right? Well, you’ve never tasted such juicy
chicken burgers in your life! Who needs bread crumbs? Top these fabulous chicken
burgers with this gourmet Onion-Shallot combination and you’re bound to have one of
your tastiest burgers eva!
Just a side note: I find the egg trend to be hysterical. I mean, it’s just a lame
egg, what’s the big deal? But with all the laughs aside, it is delicious having that egg
yolk oozing all over the chicken, plus it’s super-cool too nowadays, so why not?

Juicy Chicken Burger
By: Raizy Fried
Yields: 3-4 servings
1 lb ground chicken breast
1 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp hot sauce
1 Tbsp onion powder
½ Tbsp garlic powder
Pinch of salt
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
4 pretzel buns
1 beef tomato, sliced
4 sunny-side-up eggs, (optional)
Preheat a grill pan over a high flame.
In a large bowl, combine the chicken burger ingredients and mix together until well
Generously spray the grill pan with oil. Form 4 equal-sized patties by spooning the
mixture directly onto the grill pan and shaping them with the spoon.
Grill the patties for 4 minutes on each side, until completely cooked through.
Note: To cook the burgers on the grill, grill over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes on each
side, or until completely cooked through.
To assemble, place each chicken burger on a bun and top with the onion-shallot sauce,
lettuce, sliced tomatoes, pickles, and fried egg (if using).
The onion-shallot sauce can be made 2 or 3 days in advance, and then kept
refrigerated in an airtight container.
2 Tbsp oil, for frying
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 small shallots, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp kosher salt
3 Tbsp good quality dry red wine
Pinch of salt
Pinch of black pepper (when are the pinch of salt and pepper used?)
Heat the oil in a skillet over a high flame. Add the onion and
shallots and sauté for 5 minutes, mixing constantly.
Reduce heat to low and add the
garlic, salt, pepper and wine, mixing to combine. Cook at
low heat for another 5 minutes to incorporate all the flavors.
