It was my first time to eat a chicken burger. The owner of the store said that she called her store GoodBurger because they serve the "healthier" kind of burger - either vegetarian or chicken. But a burger is a burger, right? Can it really be healthier?

I think a chicken burger could be a little bit healthier since chicken is a leaner meat than beef. BUT, if you add all the same toppings as you do to a regular burger it probably does not end up being that much healthier.

If it's been breaded and deep fried then it isn't healthier than other burgers. Chicken is generally lower in fat than beef but once it's been popped in a deep fryer it isn't any better! But if it's been grilled then it sure is.

I like chicken burger either.. i usually buy Magnolia's chicken burger.. i think it's healthier than the usual... plus, it should be cooked in a right way, not the normal fast food chain way... i usually cook it using olive oil.. as we all know, olive oil is healthy.. it's recommended to all those people with hypertension, heart diseases, etc.. and yes, the bun has a factor too.. it's best if you use the wheat ones,

Yes it does depend on how it was cooked, and also if it has any side dish or healthy thing inside it, like salad. And it can also be healthier depending on what the Bun was made with

I think it depends on how it was cooked? If that store is a fastfood chain then maybe it is just the same as other burgers. But if it is prepared carefully like homemade then it may be healthier.
