Seasoned with poultry seasonings such as oregano, thyme, sage and rosemary, this vegan chicken burger just might fool your friends. This delicious crispy burger is vegan and omnivore approved, you don’t want to miss this one.
I really hate that saying. “Try this it tastes like chicken!” When people say something tastes like chicken, it usually doesn’t!
But, I swear this patty really does taste like chicken. It even looks like chicken! My husband, Mr. Healthy Kitchen was overly impressed!
How to prepare your vegan chicken burgers
This recipe is pretty easy to make, which is always a wonderful bonus! I love recipes that are simple AND delicious! Since I do a lot of meal prep, I often have leftover rice in my refrigerator. If you don’t, just quickly boil some or throw some in your rice cooker.
While your rice is going, you can start boiling your potatoes. Once fork tender, toss all your ingredients (except the oats) into a food processor until well combined, but do NOT over mix.
Add the oats last and pulse once or twice just to mix them through without breaking them down. Or transfer to a bowl and stir the oats in.
Your batter will be quite sticky, so make sure to use wet hands when forming your patties. This will help you form them, without the batter sticking to your hands. First make roughly tennis size balls, then flatten slightly into a patty shape.
Bake your vegan chicken patties for about 30 minutes, flipping around the 20 minute mark. Once cooked, these burgers really resemble chicken.
They are golden brown, crispy on the outside, and moist in the middle. YUM!
Serve your burgers with or without buns, but don’t forget the toppings! Go for lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayo for a classic combo.
OR skip the bun and opt for some delicious and EASY 3 Minute Guacamole on top!
How long do they keep?
These patties will keep refrigerated for 2-3 days. Just reheat in the oven or toaster oven until heated through.
Or, cook as directed and freeze the patties in an air tight container with sheets of parchment paper between each one.
