How long to bake chicken burgers in the oven?

The answer depends on weight and temperature. For a 350 degree oven and chicken burgers weighing about 2 lb in total (four to six burgers) you want to cook them for 45 minutes and then start checking for doneness. Either use a temperature probe and look for 160 degrees or more or a finger press that doesn't easily dent the burger.
Be prepared for another 15 minutes of cooking depending on your oven.
A whole chicken (2 1/2 lbs - 3 lbs. is usually cooked for an hour and a half at this temperature. But a whole chicken is not burgers. A whole chicken has bones which take longer to bring to temperature and a concentrated mass. Burgers have no bones (hopefully) and are separated from each other in smaller mass.
The important part is getting the internal temperature in the burgers to read 160 degrees or above.
