BBQ Chicken Burger with Beer Braised Onions Recipe


For the burgers:
  • 1 lb ground chicken (I used half breast, half thighs)
  • ⅓ cup breadcrumbs
  • ¼ whole milk
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼-1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning*
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
For the onions:
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced
  • 1 bottle of beer*
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • bbq sauce
  • sliced cheddar cheese
  • romaine lettuce
  • pretzel buns


  1. In a large bowl combine the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, milk and spices. Mix with your hands until well-combined and then form into patties.
  2. Line a plate with parchment paper and layer the burgers on top, putting parchment in between each burger so they don’t stick.
  3. Chill until ready to cook.
For the onions:
  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet or saucepan.
  2. Add the onions and cook until soft.
  3. Add a cup of the beer and the brown sugar. Stir together and let cook down for about 10 minutes or until the beer has evaporated.
  4. Add another cup of beer and reduce the heat, stirring occasionally until brown and soft. Add salt to taste.
To cook the burgers:
  1. Grill or pan fry about 5 minutes per side or until cooked through.
  2. After flipping place cheese slices on top to melt.
  3. Serve on pretzel buns with bbq sauce, braised onions, romaine lettuce or any other desired toppings.
