Indoor Chicken Burgers on Biscuits
Delicious alternative to beef and buns without having to light up the grill.
- Serves: 5 persons
- 1pound ground chicken
- ¾cup bread crumbs
- 3tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1teaspoon garlic powder
- 1teaspoon kosher salt
- 2tablespoons olive oil
- ½cup sliced onions
- 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1tablespoon baking soda
- 1tablespoon white sugar
- 1teaspoon salt
- 2tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- ½cup vegetable shortening
- 1cup low-fat milk
- 1cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Step 1Combine ground chicken, bread crumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, garlic powder, and kosher salt in a bowl using your hands; shape into 5 patties about 3 inches across and 1 inch thick.
Step 2Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook patties in the hot oil until browned, about 5 minutes. Flip patties and add onions to the skillet. Cook until patties are browned on the second side and onions are tender, about 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the patties should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
Step 3Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Step 4Mix flour, baking soda, white sugar, and salt together in a bowl; fold in chives. Cut shortening into flour mixture until crumbly. Gradually pour milk into mixture while stirring with a wooden spoon until dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Step 5Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for 2 minutes; flatten into 1 inch thickness. Use a round cookie cutter or juice glass to cut into individual biscuits, pushing straight down and pulling straight up to maintain fluffiness while baking. Arrange biscuits on a baking sheet.
Step 6Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 13 minutes.
Step 7Slice biscuits open and place a burger on the bottom half of each biscuit; top with onion and mozzarella cheese. Place top half of the biscuit on top of the mozzarella cheese to create a sandwich.
