Craving for a flavorful, savory, and juicy hamburger but trying to watch your carbohydrate intake? Problem solved! With a little creativity, making satisfying and epic low-carb burgers are possible! Presenting, epic low-carb chicken burgers recipe!

 

In this recipe, chicken burgers consist of portobello mushrooms instead of bread and a stack of raw veggies of your choice. For the burger patty, I used ground chicken as a substitute for ground beef. It can be even healthier if you use white meat like ground chicken breast or a turkey.

 

These heartier versions of burger recipes will fill you with dietary fibers as well as nourish your body with vitamins and minerals. It’s rich in protein, vitamins A and C, calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium. 

 

This dish is also prepared and cooked with low carbohydrates. This is a great or even perfect meal for on-season competitors and models who are looking for lower carb options fit for their special diets.

 

You can also make chicken patties in advance and store them in your fridge. Be sure to line parchment paper in between to prevent them from sticking together. It’ll also make it easier for you to get the number of patties that you need to thaw and prepare.

 

What are you waiting for? Forget those store-bought greasy burgers and try this burger instead! I swear you’ll never regret making this low-carb burger a part of your quick and easy meal plans for dinners or parties!

 

Also, you can share your experiences and insights on this dish by sending me an email or leaving a comment below! For me, nothing is more important than helping you achieve your weight loss and fitness goals through my recipes.

 

Happy and healthy eating everyone!
