The Best Vegan Chicken Burgers Ever!

chicken-burger-3

One of my favorite fast-food things to eat in my pre-vegan era – I guess that would be like 2004 B.V. – was chicken burgers. I would go to Wendy’s and get their chicken sandwich with mayo, lettuce and tomato. Not surprising since my favorite food was chicken and fried chicken cutlets were a staple.

When it wasn’t fast food, I would go to a deli near work and get this amazing chicken cutlet sandwich with bacon (Tak mi przykro), Russian dressing, pepper jack cheese (also sorry) and it was my very favorite.

Więc oczywiście, I love making anything that is a vegan version of chicken and now I have found my favorite vegan chicken burger recipe ever! That’s a tall order but these are so good. I’ve tried making a lot of different vegan chicken cutlets and burgers and these were most reminiscent of the pre-vegan ones.

It’s also surprising that it’s a simple recipe. The base of the burgers is cannellini beans and leftover millet. You could use rice or quinoa if that’s what you have. It acts as a binder plus it gets crispy when you cook it. I like using cannellini beans because they are neutral and creamy.

To make it taste chicken-y, I add grated carrot to the mix. There’s something about the flavor of carrot that adds to the chicken-y taste. In addition to the usual seasonings, I add poultry seasoning. Don’t worry, it’s vegan. It’s just a mix of herbs that go well with chicken. If you don’t have a jar of that, just combine dried thyme, suszone szałwia, dried marjoram and dried rosemary with a little pepper and nutmeg to make your own.

For the vegan “jajka,” Użyłem Vegg Egg Replacer. You could also use flax, chia or your favorite egg replacer. Then I added gluten-free bread crumbs. Not only does this act as a binder but the bread crumbs get crispy when you cook the burgers which is a great texture. I added just enough flour to hold it all together.

Now you could bake the burgers. I like to do this; I feel it makes them hold together better plus I don’t have to stand there watching them cook. If you want to bake them, I would suggest crisping them up in a skillet first, just to get that crispy coating. Then bake them for 30 minutes or so at 400 stopni. Alternatywnie, you could just cook the burgers in the skillet.

For toppings, I sauteed some red onion slices and added lettuce and tomato. For a spread, I love mixing Hampton Creek Just Mayo with some ketchup or BBQ sauce and a hit of vegan Worcestershire sauce.

These burgers were so good – I daresay the best I’ve ever made. You can add other spices like curry or cumin to give them an ethnic twist or top them with vegan cheese and/or vegan bacon for a super-duper vegan bacon cheese burger. However you make them, i know you’ll love them. Cieszyć się!
