Summer Grilled Chicken Burger Recipe

By Jane Puchniak


  • 450g ground chicken
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • ½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper (optional)
  • ½ cup finely chopped celery (optional)
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley (optional)
  • ½ tsp dried thyme (optional)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • ⅓ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp olive oil


  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1½ tbsp honey
  • ⅔ tsp dried dill (available at specialty food stores)


  • hamburger buns
  • lettuce
  • onion
  • tomato
  • mayonnaise


  • Mix all of the patty ingredients together until evenly combined.
  • Divide the mixture into 4 patties.
  • Fry the patties in olive oil for 8-10 minutes each side.
  • Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the dressing and stir until blended.
  • When the patties are cooked, pile your hamburger bun with the chicken patty and desired toppings and finish with a generous helping of honey and dill dressing.


  • If you are cooking for one, wrap the other 3 patties individually in plastic wrap and freeze them for later.
  • For a healthier option: after frying, place the burgers on a paper towel to remove the excess oil.
  • If you have difficulty finding hamburger buns use bread as a substitute – in which case you can shape your burgers to be a little more square.
