Optional Toppings and Garnishes
Depending on the chicken breasts you use you may need to pound them to an even thickness so they cook evenly. I recommend about 1 to 1 1/2-inches thick. Also, if you have big chicken breasts you may need to cut them in half so, once cooked, the chicken burgers are about the same size as your hamburger buns.
Notes about Nutrition Estimate:
It’s tricky estimating nutrition for a marinade since it’s almost impossible to figure out how much of the marinade is absorbed into the chicken. I calculated the nutrition estimate assuming 1/4 of the marinade ingredients were absorbed since most of it is discarded and the chicken is patted dry before it’s cooked. Please keep in mind that this is only estimate.
I did not include the optional toppings and garnishes in the estimate or the hamburger buns since, depending the brand you use, nutritional values may differ.
