Take your taste buds on a delicious ride today with this juicy Chicken Burger. Lockdown days are sure making active kids impatient and hungrier. I feel sorry to see them slumped in front of the TV or Computer after their online classes! Board games and carroms were good for the first few days but now, they really miss their friends and outdoor fun. To cheer them up, I try to satisfy their food cravings, esp. the snacks stuff.
Chicken Burgers are always in great demand at home. Although the lean meat patties are healthy, Cheese and Mayo that goes into the burger are always a concern as it raises the calorie scale. To squelch my conscience, I started making whole wheat burger buns at home to make it healthier, and my kids are having a gala time with fully homemade chicken burger, KFC style fried chicken and whole wheat Pizzas.
If you have kids at home, try lifting their mood by making great food and snacks at home.

- Take out and divide into small ball sized portions and shape into round patties.
- Heat a non-stick pan and drizzle little oil.
- Place the Chicken Burger patties in the pan and cook on low heat.
- Cover the pan to lock in the moisture and allow the burger to get charred on one side.
- After few minutes, flip the patties to sear the other side.
- Cook covered to ensure that the burger patties are fully cooked.
- Once done drain on a tissue paper. Alternately, you can try grilling or baking at 2200 C.
