Buffalo Chicken Burgers – packed with flavor these burgers are a perfect weeknight dinner (and they make amazing leftovers!). GF + DF + Paleo + Whole30




  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup celery, finely sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ghee, cold and cut into little chunks



  1. Combine: Add ingredients to medium mixing bowl and mix to combine.
  2. Patties: Separate into 4 equal balls (putting a little oil on your hands helps a lot) and shape into patties.
  3. Refrigerate (optional): Place in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes to cool (this step is not required, but the patties will stay together better as you transfer them to the grill if you do this).
  4. Preheat: Preheat grill to 400-450 degrees F.
  5. Prep Foil: Place a piece of foil on top of clean grill grates and spray generously with non-stick/avocado oil spray.
  6. Patties: Place patties on top of the foil and over direct heat.
  7. Cook: Cook for 5-7 minutes per side with cover closed or until the internal temp reaches 160-165 degrees F.
  8. Remove: Remove from grill and let rest 5-10 minutes (the internal temp will increase as it rests).
  9. Serve: Serve with butter lettuce, sliced green onions, Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce and Primal Kitchen Ranch Dressing.


  • Transferring Patties: I used a small metal spatula to transfer the patties from the plate to the grill.
  • Grilling on Foil: the second time I tested these I did the first 7 minutes on the foil and then the when I flipped them over I placed them on (very clean, oiled) grill grates over direct heat for the second 7 minutes. This resulted in some nice grill marks on one side of the patties.
  • Prep Time: I did not include the optional refrigerator time in the recipe card prep time.
