Beer drunk chicken burger is basically your standard chicken burgers that have been given a beer-y makeover and loaded with goodies of all kinds to turn this into your absolute favorite kind of burger. Ever. I am talking perfectly cooked, succulent juicy meat, topped with caramelized onions, melted cheese, freshness from the Greek trifecta of tomatoes, cucumbers and herbs, smeared with 3 delicious spreads! YUM doesn’t begin to cover this beer drunk chicken burger. Oh and yes, I topped it all with a perfectly fried egg! Heaven!!

So, how have you all been!?? I feel like I am talking to you guys after eons! I know its just been a week but I really missed you good folks! Also, do you know I am so happy today! I got my house back, my space back and I can finally create the food I like and do what I love best, that is talk to you guys. Yes, my in laws are finally gone and I feel as free and light as a bird! Does that make me a bad person? A bad girl? Not sure but I will be damned if I pretend otherwise.

The husband wanted to celebrate with something indulgent and suggested our ever favorite pasta alla vodka. That’s what I was going for when I saw the bottles of beer still lying around in the fridge. So instead of making the pasta, I did what any self respecting foodie would do – create something new!! Chicken burgers are loved in my house. Not the McDonalds or KFC kind (although D is kind of addicted to KFC). The burgers I make at home are simply amazing!! If you haven’t tried my Malai chicken tikka sliders yet you absolutely must! It is phenomenal. And if you are looking for a burger that will make your day amazing, this poached egg burger with garlic aioli is what you need in your life. Trust me. No one can stay unhappy or blue after this!

This beer drunk chicken burger was the stuff of your wildest fantasies!

Wait, does beer in the chicken sound weird to you?? Try it!! Beer is awesome in food, makes a great batter and is pretty cool when added to meat. Like these beer battered onion rings. These are so light and so moreish. Plus: perfect side with these beer drunk chicken burgers!! 1 bottle of beer, two perfect recipes plus a mug of chilled beer to wash it all down with! Win win!!

Coming to these beer drunk chicken burgers, these are incredibly lighter and way healthier than the ones you get in a cafe. I added freshness with tomatoes, and pickled cucumbers and carrots. Also, hellooo egg porn!! Who else loves fried egg that drips all the way into everything in its way?! P sure does and this was so good with the beer drunk chicken burger guys. Of course, the egg is optional but P highly recommended it, especially if you are an egg lover! I love my burgers to be moist and juicy and a little bit contrasting. These beer drunk chicken have so much flavor going for them that its basically like a burger on steroids! Seriously.

The chicken mince is mixed with finely chopped onion, jalapeno, chili garlic sauce and tons of seasonings. Grill it on a pan for 7 mins and ta da…  done!  Next, while the patties are cooking, butter your buns and grill them, fry the egg, chop the veggies. Of course I added some caramelized onion coz I think it takes everything through the roof, but you can just go with normal slices of onion if you are short on time. Add whatever spread speaks to your heart. My favorite condiments on a burger will forever be sriracha +  mint mayo + mustard sauce. Simple. Classic . Perfect.

Instructions
To make the chicken patties:
  1. Start by mixing everything listed in the ingredient together with the minced chicken really well. Mix well with hand and shape into flat patties. It should form 4-5. Cover and let it rest in the fridge for 15 mins. While that's chilling, make the caramelized onions. Slice onions thin and add them into a pan with 1 tsp of oil. Cook on very low heat for 10 mins till softened. Add a pinch of salt and 1 tsp of sugar and let it caramelize and cook for further 5 mins, Turn off heat.
For the burger:
  1. Heat a grilling pan or girdle, add 1 tbsp oil and let the pan become smoking hot. Once hot, add the chicken patties to the pan and let it cook on high for 2 mins. Then turn down the heat, turn the patties carefully and let the other side cook for 5 mins or till the chicken is white and doesn't look pink in the centre. Keep pressing on the patties with a slotted spoon or spatula to make sure the centre in getting heat too.
  2. Once that is done, butter the buns and grill to desired degree of done-ness. In another pan, fry an egg the way you like best. Just before serving, put the chicken patties back on the grilling pan or girdle, cover each pattie with a slice of cheese and cook for 30 secs till the cheese starts to soften and melt a little. Remove!
  1. To assemble the burger, make sure everything is ready. Smear a little of all the three condiments on the bottom bun. Place the cheese covered chicken patty on the bun, add the fresh veggies, caramelized onion, fried egg, fresh herbs. Smear more condiment on the top slice of the bun, top the burger and enjoy!!
Recipe Notes

Since this recipe contains beer, I don't advise serving it to kids or anyone under the age of 18. While making this, if you have kids at home, simply divide the chicken mince mixture before adding the beer. Proceed as per the recipe. Make sure you keep the beer and the simple cooked patties in different plates!

Enjoy!
