These chicken burgers are made with tangy Buffalo sauce and they’re overflowing with blue cheese that’s been stuffed into the center. They’re juicy and tender and yes, you will want more.

Oftentimes we like to prepare certain foods ahead of time or in bulk and freeze some of it for enjoying later. This is one of those recipes. It evolved as an exercise of clearing out the refrigerator and realizing we had some ground chicken that needed to be cooked.

I went back and forth hin my head – Meatballs? Pasta? Tacos? – but landed on BURGERS when I realized we ALSO had some blue cheese left from a previous meal.

Blue cheese is so good. Not everyone does. It’s a powerful cheese and it can easily overtake the other flavors in a dish, but it stands up nicely to the tangy flavors of Buffalo sauce and the lovely spiciness of chili peppers. And they sure look yummy.

Take a look.

Blue Cheese-Buffalo Chicken Burgers Recipe

Get yourself a nice sear on them and top them with a brush of melted butter and some additional blue cheese crumbles. NOM NOM NOM.

We chowed these down. The recipe makes 4 good-sized patties. We had 2 for lunch and froze the other 2 for a later time, and they were just as good.

The combination is a classic one. Buffalo sauce and blue cheese. You season up the ground chicken with cooked vegetables – don’t forget the chili peppers! – and round it out with sauce, blue cheese and a bit of panko to bind it up just enough.

Don’t overdo the panko. Or the salt and pepper. If you want extra spice, toss in some chile powders or a nice Cajun blend of ingredients. Taco seasonings work nicely, too.

You can sear and cook them over the stove or on the grill. Whatever works best for you!
