Guinness Sticky BBQ Chicken Burger recipe


  • 400 g Minced chicken
  • 1 tbsp Black pepper
  • 2 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 50 g Finely chopped spring onions
  • 1/2 tbsp Finely chopped rosemary
  • 250 ml Guinness Foreign Extra Stout
  • BBQ sauce
  • 250 g Rindless bacon
  • Burger buns
  • Fresh tomatoes slices
  • Cheddar cheese slices


In a pan, cook your bacon until crispy. Once done, remove from the heat and set aside.

Collect the bacon fat that remains in the pan which shall be used later. The burger is all about building flavours and this will play a huge role.

In a bowl, add your minced chicken followed by Guinness Foreign Extra Stout.
This should be immediately followed by your finely chopped onion, rosemary, garlic powder, and black pepper.

Allow to marinate for 20-30 mins. Because the chicken is already minced, the marination time is not that long since plenty of the surface area is already exposed, and flavors penetrate a lot faster. However, if your chicken is not minced, you can allow it to marinate for 24 hours or more, then mince it before you cook it.

Once marinated, shape the minced chicken into 1/2-inch-thick patties.

On a pan, heat the bacon fat before placing the patties to cook.

Cook the patties for 5 minutes or until cooked through.

After the patties have even sears on both sides, add the cheese slices and allow them to melt.

Remove from the heat and begin layering your chicken bacon knockout burger.
