Buffalo chicken burgers

July 14, 2018

Summer is in full swing and I wanted to create some recipes that are easy and you can just pop on the grill. These buffalo chicken burgers are delicious and the cream cheese centers make biting into these juicy burgers so good! There is only 2 Tbsp of hot sauce for all 4 burgers so the spice isn’t too hot and I used my zero point ranch dressing to keep points as low as possible. Add these tasty burgers to your summer BBQ get togethers and I promise everyone will love them, just 2 smart points each on WW freestyle.

Buffalo chicken burgers
Recipe type: MainMeals
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
2SP blue & purple, 4SP green/4PP each
  • 1 lb raw fat free ground chicken
  • 2 Tbsp lightened up ranch dressing, I used my own recipe (linked in opening write up)
  • 2 Tbsp Frank's hot sauce
  • ½ cup panko crumbs (I use PC brand in Canada, ½ cup is 3SP)
  • ½ cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella (I use Trader Joe's)
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • 3 Tbsp light cream cheese
  1. I cooked my burgers on the barbecue over medium heat, so preheat barbecue.
  2. In a bowl mix together your chicken, ranch, hot sauce, panko crumbs, mozzarella cheese and seasoning. Shape into 4 burgers, then break each burger into 2 equal parts.
  3. Divide your 3 Tbsp of cream cheese into 4 equal servings (use a scale to help with this) Flaten out your 2 pieces for your burger, place cream cheese in the middle of one piece then form your burger using your other half.
  4. Cook on grill for approx 20 minutes turning a few times.
  5. Serve warm, I served on Flatout fold it's to keep points low.
  6. Makes 4 burgers at 2 freestyle points each, burgers will freeze well, cooked or uncooked.

    Oohh sounds so good! If I omitted the cream cheese and hot sauce, would I have to add anything else in their place? Also, would you know oven cooking instructions? Thanks 🙂

      Hi Shannon, no I think you can leave out if that is your preference, for oven time I’d guess maybe 25 minutes at 400, and I’d probably turn them half way, then just check if they are done

    Have you or anyone else on here tried this recipe using ground turkey instead of chicken? I have lots in my freezer and am looking for tasty ways to eat it.

      Hi Kaitlyn, No I have only used chicken but I imagine it will taste equally as good with turkey 🙂
