Can I make it in advance?

  • You can marinate the chicken in advance and then store in refrigerator for up to 2 days or in freezer up to 2 months in an airtight container. Be sure to thaw it out in the refrigerator before cooking.


  • You can fully assemble them and consume the next day.

How can I use the leftovers?

  • Leftover chicken can be stored in refrigerator for 3 days and freezer up to 2 months in an airtight container. It can be used in salads or sandwiches later.
  • You can also reheat the leftover burger in the microwave for lunch or dinner next day.

Recipe Tips:

  • If you have access to grill, I recommend grilling the chicken for better taste.
  • You can also cook the chicken in grill pan for that beautiful char.
  • The chicken can be marinated ahead of time (it stays fresh in the refrigerator up to 2 days).
  • You can substitute the burger buns be with lettuce leaves, if avoiding carbs.
