Yes, you can barbecue breaded chicken burgers.
The problem with grilling chicken burgers is that they tend to stick to the grill and fall apart. The solution is to use a new technique called reverse searing. This method involves cooking the meat in a low oven, then searing it on the grill or skillet to get that nice brown crust.
To start, pat your chicken patties with paper towels to remove excess moisture. This will help them brown better when you sear them later on.
Next, preheat your oven to 250 degrees F (121 degrees C). If you’re using frozen patties, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight or in cold water for about 30 minutes before cooking.
To cook frozen patties from start to finish, place them on a wire rack set inside a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes per side until cooked through completely (160 degrees F / 71 degrees C). You’ll know they’re done when juices run clear when poked with a thermometer through their center and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees F / 71 degrees C at its thickest part after 15 seconds of resting time (internal temperature will rise another 5 degrees).
