Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Blue Cheese Slaw

I pretty much love ANYTHING that is buffalo chicken flavored. These days, you can find buffalo chicken recipes for pretty much whatever you’re craving. Buffalo chicken pasta? Yep. Buffalo chicken dip? You got it. I even have a recipe for Buffalo Chicken Totchos! I really love these Buffalo Chicken Burgers, though! I love when a dish combines two of my favorite dishes!

Buffalo Chicken Burgers Questions

Can these be made on a grill?

I’ve only made these on a skillet, so I can’t say for sure. I do think that they would work fine, on a well greased grill, though!

Can I add cheese to these burgers?

ABSOLUTELY! These buffalo chicken burgers would be amazing with a slice of cheddar cheese on them. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of that sooner!

What should I serve with these burgers?

I’m definitely a burger and fries girl, so I’d say whip up some sweet potato fries or throw some tots in the air fryer. I think my Zucchini and Corn Orzo Salad would also be delicious! Or, you could keep things simple and on track with the buffalo chicken theme and serve them with some sliced carrots and celery with ranch sauce to dip.

  1. Kudos on figuring out the Link Within! When I did mine I thought it was going to be much more complicated also and I was very excited when it was easy! I think mine gets confused sometimes too…I don’t think enchiladas and pumpkin bread have anything in common…

    My boyfriend makes something similar to this and he raves about it, maybe I will have to try it with a bean burger of some sort!

  2. Thanks for dropping by today 🙂 I like the LinkWithin feature, too. It’s not always relevant (like you said), but it gets people clicking around and exploring your site. 🙂

    I love your blogging “platform” (for lack of a better word), about eating healthy with occasional indulgences. My thoughts exactly 🙂

  3. I’m often scratching my head at what the LinkWithin feature thinks are similar items. But I’m still glad we have it. And often times on other blogs, something else will catch my eye on those little thumbnails that makes me explore the site a little further.

    Oh and these chicken burgers look divine.

  4. I’ve wondered about the “link within” feature I’m glad it worked out and was easy to do-might have to add it to my blog too:)
    These burgers sound delish!!

  5. HA the brownie button nutella cheesecake squares ARE on there! too funny 🙂 i have the same gadget and i’ve noticed the same inaccuracies. oh well!

    these burgers look great!

  6. i have always wondered how ppl do that! You are soo much better at that stuff than me! I couldnt even figure out the mclinky trick! 🙂

    lord knows i need to bedazzle my blog..I am thinking of a total makeover- I havent always LOVED the design.

  7. i feel ya on the cool gadgets. i have many more i want to add, i just don’t feel like taking the time right now to figure out 1. how to install them and 2. how they work. i’ve considered the linked within button, just haven’t installed it.

    btw, i love your blog template and colour scheme

  8. I’ve be craving a good burger lately, nothing just seemed worth it though fat. Yours just seems better all around.

  9. Great post, thanks for the morning laugh! I’m still laughing because your chicken burgers are linked to your lemon blueberry streusel bars right now, lol! The same thing happens to me, I give up! Your chicken burgers sound amazing, especially with the blue cheese slaw. My husband would go nuts over this burger. Yum!!

  10. This is so right up my alley! I love buffalo anything and of course its blue cheese accompaniment! I, too, see all the cool features other blogs have and want to spiff mine up. Thanks for the tip on LinkWithin – it looks cool (and it apparently REALLY likes your chicken pot pie as it’s recommending in this post!).
