Recipe: Paleo Buffalo Chicken Burgers

I have to be honest and tell you that ground chicken is not something that I would normally buy. If I'm going to make burgers, you can bet that they're going to be made of beef; but the other day ground chicken was ridiculously cheap at the grocery store, so I bought two pounds and stuck it in the freezer. I said, "I'm going to make Buffalo chicken burgers out of this!" and that's exactly what I did last night.


  • One pound of ground chicken
  • 1/4 cups Frank's Hot Sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons of butter
  • Lettuce for wrapping the burger (Iceburg or Bibb works really well)
  • Toppings: mayo, tomato, onion, chopped celery


  1. Mix ground chicken together with hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Separate meat into four sections and make a patty out of each one with your hands.
  2. In a medium to large pan, heat the butter over medium heat. Place burgers in pan.
  3. Cook about eight minutes on each side, or until the chicken is cooked throughout.
  4. Serve with lettuce, tomato, onion,  chopped celery, and a dollop of mayo if you're into it. Also, a sprinkle of celery seeds makes a nice touch.
