You’ll love these easy BBQ chicken burgers with barbecue sauce and cheddar cheese cooked right in!
I have a confession to make. While I call myself weary because my kids wear me out (which is 100% true), I stuck to easy recipes well before I became a mother. I had much more time and energy back then, but I still had zero interest in a recipe with a mile-long list of ingredients or a dozen steps.
I don’t like to call myself a lazy cook. It sounds much nicer to say I am efficient. Why should I be bothered to baste burgers with sauce and melt cheese on top when I can just stir everything together and call it dinner? That’s what I did with these scrumptious and easy barbecue chicken burgers. You will love the smoky, sweet flavor in every bite, and you can’t beat the simple prep!
OK, so I also melted cheese on top… There is cheese cooked right in, but you can never have too much cheddar if you ask me. These chicken burgers are big on BBQ flavor. Since there is a full half cup of sauce added to the meat, the patties are pretty loose. I have only made these BBQ burgers in an iron skillet on my stovetop, and I’m pretty sure they would fall apart on a grill. If you are a diehard griller, just think of this as your rainy day burger recipe.
In case you’re wondering what to do with the rest of the bottle of BBQ sauce, don’t miss these delicious ideas!
