So, burgers are one of those things we usually make during the summer so seeing as we’re heading into the colder months we will really miss our grill! Goodbye, BBQ Tenderloin and Grilled Corn – we’ll miss you! The hardest are the burgers, though. I love grilled burgers!
So, as much as I’m looking forward to baking more and making cozy dinners I’m always a little sad when we clean and cover the grill for the winter. So, you might be wondering – well, if grilling season is over for you what’s with the chicken burgers? I’m so glad you asked! I cooked these easy Chicken Burgers with Ranch using my – are you ready for it? – broiler. Yep, these juicy burgers cook in about 10 minutes in the oven, but you’d never know. They totally look and taste like they were grilled!
My sister-in-law told me about this recipe for chicken burgers. We usually stick with beef burgers or turkey burgers, so I was curious about using ground chicken to make a burger. I played around with the recipe she shared – I changed it a lot and mixed it up – and (spoiler alert!) they are yummy! Obviously, they have ranch dressing on them because you know how we love our ranch around here! Maybe I’ll throw some bacon bits in next time. You know how I roll.
