Heat up your grill and prepare a grilled chicken burger the whole family will love! If you love chicken as much as we do, you will also want to check out these gluten free chicken recipes.
If you have been following my blog for a while, you know we love Foster Farms Chicken and that I use it weekly when making family meals. Their air-chilled chicken is full of flavor.
If you aren't familiar with air chilling, it is a special process of cooling the chicken without using water. This means chicken doesn't absorb water and therefore, you don't get diluted chicken juices.
Serve this burger with my crispy Gluten Free Beer Battered Fried Onion Rings!
Using air chilling has many benefits, including better taste and texture, and it cooks so much faster, making it perfect for those busy weeknights!
The secret of this recipe is garlic butter, lots of it. This allows the flavor to cook into the chicken while keeping it super moist.
For this recipe, I don't use chicken sauce. I let the chicken sit with melted butter, lemon, garlic, salt, and pepper for about 15 minutes, then continue to baste the chicken breasts in this mixture as it grills.
One of the stars of this recipe is the grilled peaches. I love to grill fruit and include it in recipes. Grilling caramelizes the natural sugars in the fruit, and the flavors combine beautifully in this grilled chicken recipe.
What you need to make this recipe:
- Thinly Sliced Chicken Breasts
- Butter - use vegan butter if you are dairy-free
- Garlic - freshly minced or jarred minced garlic are both fine to use.
- My homemade Gluten Free Hamburger Buns recipe!
Recipe step-by-step directions:
Step 1: Remove the chicken and place it on a plate. Add salt and pepper.
Step 2: Brush the chicken with melted butter and garlic. Allow the chicken to sit for 15 minutes. While you are waiting, preheat the grill. Add sliced peaches to your grill and grill for 3 minutes on each side.
Step 3: Add the chicken to the grill. Baste the chicken with more of the melted butter and garlic mixture.
Step 4: Grill the chicken for 5 minutes, then turn it over and grill it for another 5 minutes. Check the internal temperature. When your chicken is 165 degrees F, your chicken is done grilling.
Now we are ready for the family to make their grilled chicken filet burgers! Grab a gluten free bun, grilled peaches, mayo, and lettuce, and make your burgers.
For bold flavor, try rubbing the chicken with this awesome coffee rub for steak.
Serve this chicken filet burger as sliders with these Gluten Free Honey Rolls or as a burger with my fluffy Gluten Free Burger Buns.

I’m having trouble finding bread, buns, etc that aren’t too dense. I have even tried making some bread but haven’t had success yet. Do you have any suggestions that you like the best?
Hi Sharon, I love Franz and Trader Joe's brands...also Canyon Bakehouse. The secret is to pop the buns in the microwave for 25-35 seconds. It softens the buns right up!
