"Chicken burgers have a reputation for being dry and not very tasty, not these this is an awesome recipe for chicken burgers! Since these only make 4 small burgers I always double amounts when I make them, also chicken patties are refrigerated 6 hours or 24 hours before cooking, also the mayo sauce is made ahead."

These burgers truly are REALLY Delicious! I couldn't find the La Grille Montreal for chicken seasoning so I substituted with regular Montreal Seasoning. The rest I followed verbatim. A keeper that I will make again for sure. Thank you SillySally for sharing. Made it for Think Pink.

The title says it all - this is a REALLY good chicken burger & the basil mayo tops it off. Goes right up there ar the top of my favorite chicken burger. I pan fried and you have to be very careful not to burn the burger - I cooked it on medium. We loved the flavour & texture of this burger. You'll see this made again
