Ever since I tried Buffalo chicken for the first time, I’ve been in love. I always try to find new ways of using in and have quite a few recipes up my sleeve. When it comes to the sauce, personally, I prefer to use mild or medium because I’m a woose and because I prefer to be able to taste my food while chewing it. But if you like it hot and like it spicy, go for the hot!

I love making chicken burgers because I can made several different meals out of it. I can serve it for dinner with some veggies or as a sandwich for lunch. Buffalo style chicken burger is one of our favorites for an easy and finger-licking-delicous lunch!

When it comes to ranch, I prefer to make my own. Mainly because I still can’t find store-bough ranch that’s as good as my homemade ranch. If you have any favorites, tell me in the comment and I will be sure to try it! If you’d like to try my homemade ranch, you can find it HERE.

    Wow these look awesome! For the Buffalo sauce, Is there a recipe or do you just purchase it in a bottle? I love the idea of the spicy sauce with the cool ranch and the blue cheese…..party in my mouth. 😉 All these recipes, all this goodness in one place. Pinning. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day! Love, Wanda

    Lyuba, this looks so SO good! Seriously, the photos look like photos you would find in a restaurant menu. They are that good!

    In case you didn’t know, buffalo anything is up at the top of foods I often crave list. I love buffalo chicken sandwiches, buffalo chicken pizza, dipping fries in wing sauce. Yum. Pinning this. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Now *THAT* is a sandwich, Lyuba!! I wish I had one of these babies for dinner :) We don’t have Buffalo Chicken anything often enough (in my opinion) because my husband isn’t really a fan :/ I’ve pinned this to try (anyways) and I’d like to invite you to link up to my All My Bloggy Friends party – it starts on Tuesday mornings at 7 am Eastern time and goes until Saturday night! Feel free to share this post and/or any others you would like to share! :) I hope to see you there!

      The best part about this, is that you can make one for him without sauce while making one for yourself with sauce!! Yum! Thank you, Jamie!

    This recipe looks awesome… I am going to have to try this out, first in my oven as a meatloaf, then the grill this upcoming weekend. I love your recipes, many of which are added to my personal cookbook that I use for those days that I have off to relax in my kitchen and create. Your creations always seem to give me something good to make in my home and even share with family… thanks.

        These were delish. I omitted the dill….just didnt appeal to me with the buffalo flavor. I did add 1 heaping tablespoon of buff sauce to the meat mixture & it was quite good. Drizzling the buff sauce from the pan onto the burger was good too. I made sliders & would def do these for company.

    Hi Lyuba! I made your burgers for dinner tonight (with a few changes according to our needs) and we liked them so much that I put my slightly altered version on my blog. I named your blog as the origin and included a link to your post. Normally I would leave a link to my post here in an effort to be polite so you could see where your recipe ended up, but I see that you don’t want blog links posted in your comments, so I’ll refrain :) Just know that it’s at the top of the blog right now and was posted on January 20th, 2014 if you would like to look at it some other time.

      Hi there! I did check out your post! I liked the idea of using turkey mean, I’ll have to try it!
      Thank you and I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

    Hi. I am not sure if anyone asked but have you tried to grill these????? They look delicious… Thank you.

    • lyuba says

      I haven’t but my mom has. Since the chicken mixture is not as dense as beef mixture, you can use one of those grilling baskets with bars spaced closed and make sure to grease it. These are also fish grilling baskets that will work well.

      • marci says

        Thank you so much for responding… That is so kind. Good idea.. I am just not a good pan fry kinda girl :((( Wish I could do it but always burn the outside and never cooked on the inside :((((

        • lyuba says

          Of course!
          As for the stove top, make sure that you are cooking on medium heat. Don’t cook on high unless you are just bringing wanted to boil. Personally, I don’t ever cook on high, if I boil water, it’s on medium-high.
          I hope you enjoy the burgers!

              My boyfriend took this recipe to work at the fire station and cooked it for the guys and they LOVED it! They claimed it was the best burger they had ever eaten. Fireman can be picky about their burgers so please pat yourself on the back! These would be fireman at Beaufort Marine Base Fire Department in South Carolina. Thank you for rocking their world!!

    like your Buffalo Chicken Burger recipe and saw several other Buffalo recipes, i grew up there and wonder if you did too!

    • lyuba says

      Hi Bill,
      I am just a big fan of recipes with Buffalo sauce. I actually grew up in Russia :)
      Thank you so much!

  12. Ashley says

    I made these tonight and they were awesome!!!!!! I used GF Panko bread crumbs because my son has a wheat allergy. I also used ground turkey instead of chicken (turkey was all I had in the freezer) My son is a picky eater and he ate his whole burger!!

    • lyuba says

      I’m so happy you liked it!! I’m glad you were able to find a GF substitution too :)
      Thank you, Ashley!
