Chicken Burger Patties (gluten-free/ egg-free)

8 Comments

Today I will teach you how to make Japanese style Burger Patties, which is the most popular style in Japan. The ingredients are ground chicken, tofu, mushroom and onion.

It is common to add Tofu to some dishes in Japan, as an ingredient, such as meatball, pancakes, muffins and so on. It makes the dishes healthier and it requires fewer ingredients. The texture of the patties is amazingly soft because of the tofu’s texture. Tofu is high in quality protein, so this patty has great nutrition!

Japanese usually have homemade burger patties with sides of vegetables and white rice, not with hamburger buns.

[Ingredients (servings 4)]

Drain the tofu and wrap it in paper towels, then microwave for two minutes. Let it sit at room temperature until cool down.

In a bowl, combine the chicken, onion, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Mix for at least 2 minutes until very well combined. Shape the mixture into 8 palm-size balls, and flatten them with your hands. In a skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat and cook the burgers for 3 minutes. Flip them, cook the burgers over low heat with a cover for 7 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.

  1. These look so delicious. I also like to combine chicken with mushrooms, but never added tofu to the mix. Will keep it in mind for next time! 🙂
