Chicken Teriyaki Burgers with Sesame Slaw

  • Author: Lindsay
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 burgers 1x


These Chicken Teriyaki Burgers are amazingly simple while also being ridiculously delicious. Caramelized burgers that are fried up in minutes, a pile of sesame slaw on top, and a perfectly toasted bun. YUM.


Units Scale

Chicken Teriyaki Burgers

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Sesame Slaw

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions (optional)


  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil for frying
  • 4 brioche buns
  • 1/4 cup yum yum sauce (or mayo, sriracha, chili crisp, whatever sauce you like)


  1. Make the Sesame Slaw: Toss the slaw ingredients together. Taste and adjust.
  2. Make the Burgers: Combine chicken, teriyaki sauce, panko, salt, and garlic powder in a large bowl. Mix with your (clean) hands until well-combined. Form into 4 large patties.
  3. Fry the Burgers: Heat a bit of avocado oil over medium heat. Add the burgers to the hot pan and cook for 3-5 minutes until golden and mostly cooked through; flip to finish for another 2-3 minutes. Cook until no longer pink in the middle, or a meat thermometer registers at least 165 degrees Farenheit.
  4. Toast Buns:  Wipe out the skillet if there are burned bits left in the pan. Pop your buns into the skillet for just a second, cut side down over medium low heat, to get them lightly toasted.
  5. Assemble Burgers: Spread top and bottom buns with yum yum sauce, place a burger, and top with the sesame slaw. Press burgers together, slice into it, and enjoy your life. I love these so much.


Burger Mixing: If the mixture is sticking to your hands while forming the burgers, try getting them a little bit wet with water. That usually helps me with the sticking. If your burger mixture seems too wet, adding an extra 1/4 cup panko will help them hold together even better.
