Cajun Chicken Burgers

In real Cajun country, this burger would surely be made of pork (or maybe even nutria). I happened to have chicken available and it because it wasn’t just boring chicken breast, it was a worthy and flavourful substitute. If you really like the spice, double up the cayenne. Of course, you could also serve this in a bun, though here, I simply plated it with some grainy mustard and sautéed red onion.

Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4


2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound ground chicken legs/thighs
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic – finely chopped or grated
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried thyme
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper


Place a heavy pan on medium heat and add the olive oil.

Mix the remaining ingredients by hand until just evenly combined, then form into four patties.

Cook the patties for three minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165F.

Serve immediately.
