Buffalo Chicken Burgers.
We have a new favorite meal. Buffalo chicken burgers!
And yes, I said “we.”
I know that you may think that our “meals” consist of Mr. How Sweet chomping on steak while I munch chocolate-covered bacon.
And while that is mostly true, I do need some real food every once in awhile.
I figured since we love buffalo chicken dip, buffalo chicken pizza and buffalo chicken tenders so much, why not create buffalo chicken burgers?
Perfect with a side of celery and bacon ranch dressing.
Obviously I didn’t eat the celery since green veggies make me cry, but I did taste the bacon ranch dressing.
Like that was even in question.
The burgers were so delicious.
It is rare that I want meat, but I practically devoured this.
I was afraid Mr. How Sweet wouldn’t like it. I’m not sure why. I guess I thought that it may scare him off since it is not regular old burgers like he is used to. When it comes to meat, the man doesn’t like change.
But he loved them too. In fact, his word was “obsessed.” And he is not nearly as dramatic as I am.
So I knew they had to be great.
Buffalo Chicken Burgers
Buffalo Chicken Burgers
- 1 lb ground chicken breast
- 3 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons buffalo wing sauce, plus more for drizzling
- 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
- ranch dressing + blue cheese dressing + buffalo wing sauce for topping whatever you'd like!
- 4 to 6 whole wheat buns
- Preheat your grill or nonstick skillet.
- In a large bowl combine the ground chicken, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, seasoning, parmesan and buffalo wing sauce. Mix until just combined. Form into patties.
- Grill or pan-fry patties until brown on both sides and cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. In the last 2 minutes, place the cheddar cheese on top of each burger. Place burgers on the buns and top with a drizzle of ranch and buffalo wing dressing. Top with lettuce. Serve with carrots, celery and extra ranch for dipping!

I appreciate you so much!
Don’t worry, that is just buffalo wing sauce and bacon ranch dressing spilling out of the side up there. No need to run away in fear. Unless you are running to make these. Which is something I highly suggest.

Alright, you’ve convinced me. I’m going to add this to the list to make this week – looks fantastic!
It’s 6am and it looks so good, I want one for breakfast!
Mmm looks good. The best part? It involves a grill which the hubby won’t let me use which means HE gets to do half of the cookin’!
I’m going to make these sometime. Too often I end up making what my guy wants, but I want more birds and fewer mammals.
Josh is a big buffalo chick fan as well. Book marked ;) Hope you guys had a nice weekend. Ugh- Monday!
Those look amazing! I want that for lunch!
This looks amazing! My husband would LOVE this! Question, though- you mentione bacon ranch dressing, but I don’t see bacon in the ingredient list. Did you add bacon to your ranch dressing? Thanks, Jessica! I am making this for dinner tonight! :-)
Nope – I just used Kraft bacon ranch. I just added that in the recipe. :)
Looks delicious and I am all for anything that has buffallo chicken in the recipe title!
If I were to start eating meat again…it would be for this! I love hot/spicy and this looks perfect! Glad you two found some common ground on the meat front. Have a great week Jessica!
Oooh yay! I’m ALWAYS looking for new chicken recipes…and this one certainly seems to be boy friendly which is a plus! And I love the flavors!
We love buffalo chicken sandwiches! I’ll have to try your recipe next time…..especially since football season is a week away – they are perfect for football!!
I usually throw my chicken in the crock pot, shred it when it’s done and then add my buffalo sauce and seasonings. Yum =)
Yum. I love all things buffalo style.
DROOLing over here…is it weird to want these at 6:15am? I think not…
Yum! I need to make these for my husband! He’ll love em’ :)
oh these look awesome… wonder how they’d be with blue cheese instead of cheddar…..
I have an obsession with buffalo sauce, so these burgers are right up my alley! I put frank’s red hot on everything from eggs to soup. Can’t wait to try these out :)
These look and sound amazing!
I’ve been on a buffalo chicken kick lately, so excited to try this burger!!! Thanks for sharing!! :) Can’t wait to try it!!!
Where is the bacon?
There is bacon in the ranch dressing… is that good enough? ;)
I loved all our other “buffalo” recipes! Now I MUST try this one!!! Keep the buffalo coming! :)
Ok, yum!!!! Can’t wait to try it!
Yum! I have a feeling that when I make these they will become a favorite of mine and my boyfriends…we both LOVE buffalo chicken anything!
oh GAAH, I love anything with buffalo sauce… this looks SO amazing and I’m not even a fan of chicken. at all.
…but I want this for BREAKFAST. right now. ;)
you’ve done it again, Miss.
I need to make these before summer ends! Luckily it will be in the 90s in Boston today
What is it with men and their burgers? I practically need to trick John into eating things sometimes so he can realize that he loves it.
My Gent and I…we…are going to love these. Let’s just say the English don’t have much to do with buffalo sauce. I’m on a mission to change that. Starting with these! Thanks for sharing!
jason would LOVE THESE!! omg omg…anything buffalo chicken..I need to make them for him!
Andy would love these. He is obsessed with anything that includes buffalo wing sauce.
I’ve been curious about that bacon ranch. I need to find an excuse to buy it.
YUM. YES. Chocolate covered bacon does sound good though…
It’s great that you found something that fit both of you and I could see why, these sound like definite crowd pleasers.
If I ever start eating meat again, it will be because of you. That looks delish!
I love buffalo chicken anything, so I definitely want to try these burgers! I bet hubby would love ’em too!
How is it that I have never considered making burgers out of ground chicken before? Ack! What a great idea! Yummmmm…
Yum! You had me at buffalo sauce. I can eat pretty much anything doused in the stuff. I sometimes order celery and ranch by itself at restaurants. I’m that classy.
Oh my. This is too good to be true. I kind of want one right now, for breakfast.
OMG!!!!!! what a delicious meal!
making this for dinner tonight – sounds amazing!!
I’ve always wanted to try chicken burgers. These look great!
I love messy burgers…it makes me feel like I am in a sexy carl’s jr. commercial where the buger is just dripping all over the hot girl. I want to be that girl with this burger.
Also, celery is the BEST vehicle for yummy sauces/peanut butter/everything.
Loooooooove me some buffalo chicken! This recipe looks great Jessica. I make buffalo chicken in my crockpot and then make sandwiches with whole wheat kaiser rolls. Always a crowd please and so simple to throw together. Put a link below in case anyone is interested ;)

Ohmygosh, YUMMM. I would totally win girlfriend of the year award if I made this for the bf!
i have to stop reading your blog and recipes during work. it only makes me hungry, despite the fact i ate lunch less than one hour ago.
Good idea! I need a change-O pace from regular burgers and chick parm sammiches.
Those are some handsome burgers. What brand of buffalo sauce did you use? I’m still trying to find “my” brand…
my these look absolutely DELICIOUS!! i’m drooling all over my keyboard as i type! :P
Oh my goodness!! These look amazing. I’d actually be willing to touch raw chicken to make them.
These look AMAZING! I bet we would be obsessed with them around here, too!
I’m in love with anything buffalo chicken! These burgers look like something Andrew and I would LOVE!! :)
Love this recipe. How easy could it be? Thanks for the new dish!
