Super Cheese Chicken Burger

Can I call this Chicken Burger or Should I call them Chicken Sandwich that is the confusion when I was writting this post.
From what I read in Wiki
The term "burger", can also be applied to the meat patty on its own, especially in the UK where the term "patty" is rarely used. The term may be prefixed with the type of meat as in "beef burger".

But then in the same article it is written Burgers can also be made with patties made from ingredients other than beef.
For example, a turkey burger uses ground turkey meat, a chicken burger uses ground chicken meat. A buffalo burger uses ground meat from a bison, and an ostrich burger is made from ground seasoned ostrich meat. A deer burger uses ground venison from deer.
So I guess I will Call it Chicken Burger.

Ok Now some of you will indeed think she can call this what ever she want as this really looks super delicious.
And I do agree it was indeed so good.
After making this here at home we were like why should one go for a Burger in Macdonals or  Burger King etc.... they are so easy to make and atleast one knows what is inside the mix as you made them yourself.
Not that I am telling you all not to go to these places for earing, we do that too got to M once in a while.
But then I think nothing can match these homemade ones, they are delicious.
So why don't you try them :-)

For 4 burgers
4 burger buns ( I used pistole a small buns we get here in the bakery)
200 gm chicken breast
200 gm cooked Ham
1 egg yolk
1 onion finley chopped
2 sprigs of Tarragon
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

For Dressing up the burgers
4 slices os sheep cheese or Manchego cheese
4 slices of ornage cheddarµ4 slice of Emmental
4 tsp  cream sauce ( recipe below)
4 leaves of salade

For the Cream Sauce.
2 tbsp greek youghurt
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp mustard paste
2 small shallots
few corrianger leaves
few sprigs of chervil
few chives
pinch of cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix the youghurt, sour cream, and the mustard in a bowl and add salt and pepper to your taste.
Chop the onions fine and all the herbs, mix them into the bowl with the sauce.
Add the cumin and taste to see if you need more salt or peper.

For the chicken burger.
In a mxer , Mince the chicken breast with ham, eggs, chopped onions and the taragon.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Keep this mix in the fridge for 30 minutes.
After that make 4 equal balls from the mix and press lightly on top so they can get a little flat.

Preheat the oven for 180°c.
In the mean time heat a pan add the oil and grill the burgers each side for 5 to 6 minutes or till it is cooked through.

Slice the buns half. On one half of the buns, add a slice of cheddar and a slice of sheep cheese.
Bake this buns in the oven for 3 minutes. After the 3 minutes take bread out of the oven, take the grilled chicken burger and lay on top of the melted cheese, then on top a slice of Emental and a salade leaf.
On the other half of the bun spread enough sauce and keep on top of the other half with the chicken etc...
Serve with home made friets ( french fries)

I don't think it matters if you call this a chicken burger or a chicken sandwich. Either way it sounds and looks amazing.

I just love chicken burgers made with minced chicken. Those slabs of deep fried breasts are just so blah compared to all the yumminess you've put into that patty and burger.
