Does the word “moist” freak you out? Moist, moist, moist, moist, moist, moist. For some reason the word “moist” can make a grown woman shudder and rock herself in the corner of the room. We eat a lot of chicken in our house and I love making burgers with ground chicken but sometimes the meat can be a little too moist. Now, no one likes dry burgers either but these are just right.
I spotted these Cheddar Ranch Chicken Burgers over at Julie’s Eats and Treats and knew my family would love them. We’ve made them several times in the last couple of weeks and they will definitely be on our summer menu. I recently met Julie at BlogHer Food. I already knew who she was from online and she probably now thinks I’m officially stalking her.
You can grill these, broil them in your oven, or even cook them in a pan on your stovetop. You can’t screw them up, I promise.
What’s genius about these burgers is that they have Panko crumbs in the meat mixture. The crunchy crumbs give the burgers and almost faux fried texture like the sandwiches at Chick-Fil-A. I added a little dry Ranch dressing to up the ranch flavor. If you don’t know what to do with the remaining Ranch dressing, believe me you’ll be making these again soon.
Form the mixture into 4 patties.
