Super Crispy Chicken Patties (Burgers)

crispychickenburgerpatties pinit

One of my all time favourite fast foods are chicken burgers. I am, however, fairly fussy in terms of how the patties are made and how they taste. In my opinion, they need to be super crispy, have some spice, and heat. Many chicken patties I have had just do not come up to my standards. In light of this, I decided to make my own. Believe me, these burger patties are super crispy and delicious. The great thing is, they stay crispy for a while. In my experience, other patties go soggy in a matter of a few minutes. I love them with fries or a salad as well. One other thing about the recipe is the can be air fried or baked as well.

As always, you can adjust the seasoning by adding more or less. It is your call. We use sparkling water in the recipe, but you can use club soda, beer, or your favourite carbonated soda. Just keep it as neutral as possible, however. Nevertheless, try to ensure that it is good and cold. I use boneless skinless breasts, but thighs could be used as well. The same with the bread crumbs. I like Panko but any kind can be used.

Give the recipe a try, and let us know what you think.

I love a good chicken burger. As always, the outcome of the burger lies within the patty. Let's face it, it clearly makes or breaks the burger. In light of this, I have yet to find a chicken burger patty that meets my criteria: crispy, juicy, and perfectly seasoned. That is, until I used this recipe. Give it a try and I'm sure you'll feel the same.

  1. Add the flour and seasoning to a bowl. Mix until well combined. Add in the sparkling water and whisk until a batter forms.

  2. Put the bread crumbs in a second bowl.

  3. Drop the chicken in the batter and turn until completely coated. 

  4. Drop the chicken in the batter and turn until completely coated. 

  5. Dredge in the bread crumbs and set them aside on a plate.I find shaking the bowl coats them well. 

  6. Heat oil to about 350 F or 177 C. Fry the patties, in batches, turning occasionally,  until they are golden brown. 

  7. Place on a wire rack to drain. 

  8. If you are making a burger, layer according to your taste using your desired toppings.

  9. Enjoy your crispy chicken burger patties.

As mentioned above, I use boneless skinless breasts for the recipe. Of course they have to flattened and carved into patties which seemly produces some waste. But I always use the left over batter to make nuggets. Everybody loves them for a snack. You could use boneless skinless thighs if you are so inclined. Another fantastic thing about the patties is they can be air fried or baked as well. The trick to the crispiness of the patties is the sparkling water. The carbonization seemly works some magic chemistry. If you can't get your hands on sparkling water, you can use club soda, beer, or your favourite carbonated drink. I would keep in as neutral as possible, however.
