Zesty buffalo chicken burgers from leftover chicken are a crowd pleasing favorite.


  • 1/2 Rotisserie (or leftover roast) chicken- about 1 1/2 cups chicken meat total
  • 3/4 cup hot sauce*
  • 1/4 milk or half and half
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs**
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • red pepper to taste***


  1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  2. Let the mixture rest in the fridge for at least half an hour.
  3. Form into equal patties and cook for 3 minutes per side over medium heat on the stove top or on a grill.
  4. If desired, melt slices of cheddar cheese on top. Serve on buns and garnish with extra hot sauce and blue cheese or ranch dressing.


*Substitute in mild wing sauce if you don’t care for spicy food.

**We keep it gluten free as much as possible in our house and used gluten free bread crumbs. The recipe works just fine with regular bread crumbs as well.

***Feel free to omit the red pepper if you don’t like heat.
