Chicken burgers can be bland, dry, and boring, but not this one.

Juicy Texture and Sweet Teriyaki Glaze

An egg and some panko crumbs get added to the ground chicken. There’s also garlic, green onion, cilantro, and Sriracha sauce added for flavor.

The glaze is just two ingredients: store-bought teriyaki sauce and brown sugar.

No Grill Needed

I find it easiest to cook these burgers in a skillet. But if you want to, you can grill them.


I love these burgers topped with Ginger Mayonnaise, spinach, red onion, and thinly sliced cucumber. Grilled pineapple slices make another great topping.

Teriyaki Chicken Burgers Recipe Tips

Use ground turkey or ground beef instead of ground chicken.

Recipe can easily be doubled to make 6 burgers.

For a juicy burger that’s not dry, don’t use ground chicken that is really lean. You want at least 7% fat.

These burgers can be grilled instead of cooked in a skillet. The glaze doesn’t get added until the end of cooking because the sugar in it will burn if added too early.

Make Ahead

Burgers can be mixed and shaped up to 8 hours in advance and refrigerated until you are ready to cook them. Cover them well with plastic wrap.

    Hey Christine! Just had the teriyaki chicken burger for dinner and was really impressed, it like just Burger King. I followed your recipe exactly and everything came together perfectly. All the ingredients were perfect – I couldn’t resist trying it with your combo. Needless to say, it’s a total hit.

  2. Made these for my skeptical spouse and wow, just WOW out of bounds off the charts home run! I’d love to make them for my grandkids (8 of them 🤦‍♀️) my question is since there are just little hands would making them slider size be “doable “?
