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.
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.
