Pressure Cooker Salsa Chicken Burgers

This post is sponsored by Pepperidge Farm, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

As busy as I get during the school year, these summer days tend to fly by even faster.  My three sons keep me busy. Very, very busy.  My boys are extremely active during this time of year, which has caused them to be particularly hungry.  Burgers of any variety are the easiest and best dinner I can make my family because they are so quick to make, they don’t heat up the house, and my kids never have a problem eating them.

I don’t always like to heat up my grill, because my sons are usually playing outside and I don’t want them to go near it.  I love using my countertop Griddler for cooking burgers fast, but I thought I would attempt a burger recipe in my pressure cooker since that is my new fascination.

These chicken salsa burgers turned out delicious and juicy.  The toppings were perfect, and the Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Bun was the icing on the cake.  Or more appropriately, the bun to my burger.

Right now, Pepperidge Farm® is holding a Respect the Bun® promotion that will take place between May 14th until September 4th.  All you need to do is to proudly post photos of hotdogs and hamburgers on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #respectthebunpromotion

There will be weekly prizes and a grand prize as well.  Learn more about the Respect the Bun® promotion on the website.

I can usually find Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Buns at several stores locally.  Here in Cedar Falls, Iowa, I see them at Fareway, Walmart, and Hy-vee.  I picked these Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Buns at Walmart.

Okay, let’s get back to this fantastic burger.  Like I said above, I made these burgers in my pressure cooker.  There were no grill marks on these burgers, but these burgers tasted outstanding.  They were so moist, and flavorful that I could barely believe it.  These took less than 30 minutes to prepare from start to finish.  I cooked them in foil packets, and I made a video for you to see how I did it.

1 pound ground chicken

1/2 cup your favorite salsa

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 cup chopped cilantro

1/4 cup frozen corn

Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Buns


tomato slices


queso fesco cheese


In a bowl mix ground chicken with cilantro, onion powder, corn, and salsa. Form patties with the mixture and place them on 6 by 8-inch pieces of tinfoil

Create individual foil packets around each burger

Place 1.5 cups of water in the pot within your pressure cooker

Place the trivet on top of the water

place all 4 foil packets on top of the trivet and place the lid on your pressure cooker

Cook on high pressure for 15 minutes

Remove lid. Take burgers out of the foil packets and build your burger!

Place each burger on a Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Bun and top with a tomato slice, avocado slices, and queso fresco cheese.

This burger was outstanding.  My husband, who usually isn’t too excited about non-beef burgers enjoyed it and wanted another one.  Everything here actually went together well.  The sweet corn inside the chicken burger, the creamy avocado, the salty cheese and the perfectly soft  Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Bun.
