Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free option

Prep Time: 15 minutes, Cook Time: 15 minutes 

Makes: 4 burgers



For the Burgers:

1 lb ground chicken

1/4 sweet onion, finely diced

1/4 cup parsley, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup of your favorite buffalo sauce (plus more for later)

1/2 tsp salt

For the Yogurt Dill Slaw:

2 cups green cabbage, thinly sliced and chopped

1/4 cup dill, finely chopped

1/4 cup greek yogurt (can use dairy-free)

1 garlic clove, grated

Juice of 1/2 a lemon

1/2 tsp salt

Avocado oil

4 Gluten-Free Sourdough Sandwich Rolls, sliced in half

Your favorite Mayo (we like to mix our mayo with buffalo sauce!)



  1. Add all of the burger ingredients to a large bowl and mix well until fully combined. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes to help the mixture stick together.
  2. While the chicken chills, make the slaw. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and mix well until fully combined.
  3. Heat a grill to medium heat, and while it warms up, form the burgers. Divide the burger mixture into 4 balls then shape each into a flat, quarter pound patty. Oil the grill grates by adding avocado oil to a paper towel, then rubbing the paper towel on the grill with tongs.
  4. Add the burgers to the heated grill and cook for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, add the sliced rolls to the grill, cut side down and flip the burgers. Once flipped, brush extra buffalo sauce on the burgers (about 1 tbsp each) and cook for another 5 minutes. Check the burgers with a thermometer to ensure the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees before removing from the grill.
  5. (If you do not have a grill, you can cook the burgers in a pan on the stove over medium heat with a little avocado oil. They will cook for the same amount of time this way).
  6. To assemble, spread your favorite mayo on the bottom of a bun, add a patty and top with a heap of the yogurt dill slaw!
