What temp should chicken burgers be cooked to?

According to the USDA, ground chicken dishes should always be cooked to 165 °F (internal temperature as measured with a food thermometer) and leftovers should also be reheated to 165 °F.

At what temperature do you cook burgers in the oven?

Chicken burgers need to be cooked at 400°F for 20 to 25 minutes. This gives a golden color to the patty yet stays moist and juicy.

How do you know when chicken burgers are cooked?

The burgers need to be firm when touched in the centre. If you are new, then make a small cut in the centre of one patty and the meat should not be pinkish. If pinkish, then cook for a bit longer.

Hi Helen, Yes! Refrigerate the prepared patties for up to a day. The baking time might take few additional minutes, if baked straight out of the refrigerator. Hope it helps, Maria

First time making the recipe and the burgers were delicious. Didn't have cauliflower or carrots so substituted brown rice instead and added fresh parsley. Used lettuce wraps instead of buns. Thanks for such a tasty, thoughtful recipe. Will make other receipes for sure on this website!
