Gluten-free chicken burgers

a delightful gluten-free chicken burger!
A delightful meal!

I love-making this easy yet lovely chicken burgers!
I prepare them in my food processor & let them stiffen up in the fridge for a few hours.
You can add whatever you want in the burger.
The burgers have a lot of garlic in them but my hubbie & I like it that way! 

Print me!

Recipe: For 6 patties, each about 0.5 cm thick and 7 to 8 cm long
3 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & roughly chopped
1 large red onion, peeled & cut into chunks
1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano or more to your linking
1 large egg, beaten loose
herbamare salt:1/2 teaspoon
50 gr of gluten-free breadcrumbs/ I used Schär.
380 gr of seasoned chicken mince, gluten-free & dairy free
Maldon sea salt flakes
a fruity EVOO to fry the burgers in
** To serve: Gluten free hamburger buns
slices of tomatoes, salad leaves, tomato ketchup, mayonnaise, thinly sliced cucumber slices,…

1. Take your food processor & add the garlic, the cut up red onion, the beaten egg, the oregano, the herbamare, the chicken mince, the gluten-free breadcrumbs & a bit of sea salt flakes according to your liking, all evenly divided over your food processor. Pulse & mix until it all comes together. Taste! It has to taste fab & pungent with the raw onion & the raw garlic. Otherwise add some more oregano, herbamare or sea salt.
2. Shape patties with wet hands, it is easier to do so. Shape patties, each about 0.5 cm thick & 7 to 8 cm long. Place them well apart on a large plate or onto 2 plates. They will be a bit sticky. Place clingfilm over the top of the plates & place in the fridge to stiffen up for 1 to 3 hours.
3. 30 minutes before dinner, take the plate with patties out of the fridge. Remove the clingfilm. When you take the patties from the plate, they still can stick a bit. Fry the patties well spaced apart, until golden & cooked through on both sides, in a hot pan with a few tablespoons of the fruity EVOO in it. Drain them on kitchen paper & enjoy them with your GF sliced hamburger buns, some lettuce, some ketchup, some sliced cucumber slices, etc.

I do have a question. These GF hamburger buns look like the real thing but once you bite in it, the hamburger buns fall so easily apart. It is so crumbly!!!I couldn’t enjoy my burger with all of its trimmings like I used to. Does anyone have this same problem?? And what do you do about it?? Do you all have a great recipe for GF hamburger buns???

  1. The burgers look so tasty! I love all of your mix-ins. I wish I had a suggestion for you on the GF buns…

  2. Welcome back Sophie…even though we have you for such a short time.I appreciate this burger recipe very much…although, I do agree with you…most GF buns on the market do fall apart. I'm not impressed. I guess we'll have to come up with something soon.The only recipe, I can think of that would probably hold up would be 'Brazilian' type breads made with tapioca flour, soy and cheese. They are called 'Pao de queijo'. There are tons of versions out there in cyber space. I will have to try making some again and fixing a few things before I'd share it with my foodie friends. Let me know if you try making them and we'll compare results ;O)Have a fabulous day and flavourful wishes,Claudia

  3. I haven't bought GF buns yet. But I do like the GF wraps. So if I serve burgers or wraps, I'll use a GF flat bread or tortilla. I've had success with those. As for the bun, maybe you can do a search or try Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Flour to make your own. Love BRM products!

  4. Mmmm, garlic! You and your hubbie have it right! That's too bad about the buns falling apart though, unfortunately I don't usually eat gluten free bread, so I'm not sure why that would be. Looks like a delicious summer burger though!!

  5. I love making chicken burgers too. In fact, I prefer them to beef! This one looks so tasty, Sophie and I like all of that garlic in there too. Yum! I'm sorry I can't help on the burger buns, I have no experience with GF eating.

  6. I don't know how I can help with the GF burger or the buns, but it looks very very good! Thanks for stopping by my blog Sophie!

  7. Hopefully someone can help you figure out the GF issue. There must be another brand of breadcrumbs to keep them together? Good luck!

  8. The burger looks lovely!!.Never tried making them at home…ur recipe sounds simple and interesting. Will try it for my kids.

  9. Looks great Sophie! I love your mix in's. As for the burger bun, I buy them at a GF bakery here in LA. They stay intact ok, but it's not the same as a "flourfull" bun.

  10. Your chickenburger look delish, Sophie!I am not much of a GF cook, so really can't help you with the buns.

  11. Hola, acabo de descubrir tu blog. Tienes recetas muy interesantes.Estas hamburguesas se ven geniales, si no te importa te añado a mi lista de blogs favoritos. Saludos

  12. I love chicken burgers too :)Don't have much experience with GF foods, so I couldn't give you any advice on the crumbling roll, except maybe line it with lettuce on both sides to prevent any moisture getting into the bread.Have a wonderful weekend.*kisses* HH

  13. Oh my, Sophie! Your chicken burger looks and sounds soooo delightful! My mouth is watering. heheheUnfortunately, I'm not able to answer your question, though. It's not something I purchase or make. Good luck with it. :-)rosa

  14. Oh my – that does look tempting. I, too have never done chicken in a burger. And all that garlic does not scare me away! Delicious, Sophie.

  15. Sophie, your burger looks delicious! Gluten-free bread is always a problem – we have a friend with coeliac disease and I went on a quest to find him gluten-free baked goods. In the end, the best gf bread we found was a recipe of Dan Lepard's – I wrote it up on my blog here:'s not light and fluffy though – probably won't work as a burger bun – but is quite elastic like a good woodfired Italian loaf.

  16. That is one fabulous looking burger. I can't be of much help when it comes to the buns, but if I see something I'll direct it your way. Have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  17. Hey Sophie, good to hear from you! Those chicken burgers look excellent, and I will try them, perhaps in a bun made with tapioca flour. I bought some recently and have been meaning to make those 'Pao de queijo'buns,suggested by one of your commenters. This is the perfect reason to try an experiment.

  18. Good to hear from you, Sophie! My RSS feeds have been broken, so I'm catching up on some blog reading (and missed everyone). These burgers look amazing … I've got some friends with celiac disease and I'm passing this one!

  19. Hi Sophie, welcome back, I guess you could try " The Gluten free girl" site, she probably have a yummy solution for that. Your burger looks yummy thou.

  20. Did you save one for me ? :)I am having a cup of tea and a stroopwafel as I type !! Do you eat stroopwafels ????????I can find them at World Market here in the USA.Have a great day……..

  21. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. You know how all bloggers love comments 🙂 YOu seem to have quite a following!I once went to Brussels on my way to Nairobi … wish I could have stayed longer and gotten out of the airport on that trip. I wanted to introduce you to my favorite GF cooking blog, she'll have great advice re: GF substitutions, esp. for

  22. Hi SophieThanks for commenting on my blog. We use Schar rolls for burgers and they hold together well. The other thing we do for gf bread is first toast lightly, then put the burger on the bun and microwave for 20 seconds. It helps moisten and soften the bun so it doesn't crumble. A lot of gf bread is better with that two step process. Good Luck.Wendy

  23. yum! your burger looks fantastic. (: as for your problem, you might want to throw them hard into a bowl consecutively while mixing the ingredients. it helps in the binding as well as the crumbly issue. 😀

  24. There is really a lack of gluten free recipes out there – thanks for sharing your burger recipe – and even healthier I think because you've used chicken. When I try it though I won't use the gluten free buns after what you said.

  25. Sophie, these burgers looks divine, and I don't usually stray from your typical beef burger. You take gluten-free and all kinds of alternative cooking and turn them into such a yummy indulgences! Can I have a side of fries? 🙂

  26. Love the crispy crust on the outside of your burger. Sorry the bun was disappointing. Good luck with the adventure of finding a great GF bun.

  27. Mmmm, it looks delicious! I have never baked without gluten, so I'm afraid I can't help you with your problem… Although, sometimes eating a burger with a soft bun that falls apart can be a messy-but-joyful experience!

  28. These look wonderful Sophie, I have to try this delicious recipe!! I haven't been here for too long, I took a break from my blog for a few months but I'm back. So good to see you here!

  29. i'm a burger fiend, and i enjoy chicken just as much as beef. very healthy option, and beautifully done!

  30. Burgers are at the top of the list of my favorite foods. I need to use chicken more often. My granddaughter is gluten intolerant so I'll be eager to see if someone comes up with a good bun recipe. Thanks, Sophie.

  31. Gluten free bread crumbs.. hmm.. gotta go see if I can find some of those, because I definitely want to try these burgers.

  32. Hi Sophie from Sunny Hot Florida! Those burgers look good but I've never had GF burgers before so don't have an answer for you but I might have to try these!!! HUGS!

  33. these sound yummy and I love your new (or perhaps not so new, it's been a while since I've browsed my fav foodie blogs) wallpaper 🙂

  34. Sophie, that chicken burger looks delicious. I make a similar one and letting them sit in the refrigerator is a good idea.I'm not a GF cook, so I can't help with the bun problem. However sometimes we eat a hamburger without the bun. We load the plate with lots of trimmings and we don't seem to miss the bun as much.Sam

  35. I never think to make chicken burgers even though I love eating them when I am back home in the States. This is a great, flavorful recipe and they look delicious! Thanks for the idea!
