Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Tonight was one of those nights that things just seem to click in the kitchen, though they didn’t exactly start out clickin’.

I forgot to put the pound of ground chicken we had in the fridge in the crock pot before I went to work this morning, so my initial plan to enjoy salsa slow cooker chicken was out.

What to do…

I opened the pantry and felt uninspired.

Then I opened the cabinet where we keep our spices and sauces and inspiration struck me like a lightning bolt. (True story: I couldn’t think of an analogy when I said “Inspiration struck me…” and when I turned to Ryan for help, his suggestion was “It struck me like explosive diarrhea.” Great. Thanks.)

Inspiration came in the form of Frank’s Red Hot Wings Buffalo Sauce!

The only way I’ve used this sauce before was to create buffalo pulled chicken sandwiches, but I remembered seeing Jessica conjure up some tasty lookin’ buffalo chicken burgers a while back and figured I could make some of my own by loosely following the buffalo pulled chicken recipe.

I combined the following in a bowl:

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/4 c. Franks Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • 1/4 c. Parmesan Cheese

I stirred everything up until the chicken mixture was fully combined. I then sprayed a skillet with cooking spray and formed the chicken into patties to cook over medium/high heat.

I let the burgers cook for about seven minutes on each side, adding a slice of Muenster cheese on top of the burgers for the last two minutes.

I paired the buffalo chicken burgers with a side of roasted asparagus and was basically frothing at the mouth as I snapped these pictures.

Ryan was also a big fan of these burgers! (Holly, I think you better make them for Craig ASAP since he liked the buffalo pulled chicken so much!)

    Your shoes are so adorable! This is so exciting. The wedding is coming so soon and details are slowly falling into place. I love those shoes, I might just have to buy a pair! 😉

    Buffalo chicken is one of my favourite things in the world (aside from peanut butter and cereal). I can’t wait to try your buffalo chicken sandwich recipe!

    Buffalo sauce mixed with meat is a fabulous idea. I am looking forward to making something similar from a Rachael Ray recipe I found..probably this weekend so you should see it soon. Also, your wedding shoes look beautiful! Enjoy them.

    Howdy, ladies! I recently received my hCG drops today. I havn’t done a whole lot of research myself, but have numerous good friends on them that have great results. I’m wondering if any individual on here takes them. How they’ve worked for you and if taking them with my additional medications is ok. Thanks

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no
    data backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

    I made these last night and my husband and I fell in love; they are so tasty! The best part is that I have leftovers for lunch today. I want to try them with Muenster Cheese that’s the only thing I didn’t have, I used 1/2 a slice of American and added a slice of tomato yummmmm!

    Thanks so much!
