Buffalo Chicken Burger With Carrot and Celery Ranch Slaw

This Buffalo Chicken Burger is the perfect mashup of a hamburger and chicken wings. My husband is a traditionalist for pub classics like pizza, burgers, and chicken wings, and even he was impressed and enjoyed this sandwich.

Often restaurants will offer a buffalo style chicken sandwich using a chicken breast which you can do at home, but often that might come out dry, and the texture is not the same as a traditional hamburger. You can use ground chicken from the store, but I chose to grind it myself. I used equal parts light and dark meat. Simply season the meat with some spices and Frank’s hot sauce and form it into a patty. After the cooking was completed, I basted the patty for more buffalo sauce flavour.

Rather than serving the buffalo chicken burger with lettuce, tomato and ranch or blue cheese sauce, I topped it with a slaw of the typical side of carrots and celery.

Slaw Ingredients

  • 3 ribs celery thinly sliced on the bias
  • 2 medium carrots shaved and sliced vertically
  • ¼ cup red onion thinly sliced
  • ½ cup parsley
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil extra-virgin
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup ranch cheese dressing

Burger Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • ½ teaspoon celery salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • cup hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 4 medium hamburger buns


  • To make the slaw, combine all ingredients and set them aside. It can be made in advance and refrigerated.
  • For the burger patties, combine the ground chicken with spices and 1/3 cup of the hot sauce. Separate into 4 equal parts and form round patties a little larger than your hamburger buns
  • Place the remaining 1/3 cup of hot sauce in a small bowl with the cornstarch and whisk together.
  • Heat a cast-iron or indoor grill to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken patties on each side for about 4 minutes (or until cooked through). Right before removing, baste with the cornstarch-buffalo sauce mixture.
  • To assemble, place the chicken patty on a hamburger bun, top with slaw, and if you want more hot sauce or ranch, spread a thin layer on the top bun.
