  • 1 pound of ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (for cooking)
  • Burger buns
  • Optional toppings: lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped onion, minced garlic, chopped parsley, dried oregano, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.
  2. Divide the chicken mixture into 4 equal portions. Shape each portion into a burger patty, making sure to press firmly to compact the mixture.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the burger patties to the skillet. Cook the patties for 5-6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Ensure the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) to be safe. Toast the burger buns if desired. Place a cooked chicken patty on the bottom half of each bun.
  4. Add your favorite toppings such as lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup. Top with the other half of the burger bun. Serve your delicious homemade chicken burgers immediately, accompanied by your favorite side dishes like fries, coleslaw, or a fresh salad.
