These burgers are Buffalo chicken wing knock-offs. They're brushed with a spicy BBQ sauce and then topped with crumbled blue cheese. Amazing flavour.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Barbecue sauce

¼ cup(s)

Hot pepper sauce

1½ tsp(s), or to taste

98% fat free uncooked ground chicken breast

1 pound(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

½ cup(s), sliced

Uncooked celery

¼ cup(s), chopped

Dried plain breadcrumbs

¼ Tbsp, plain-variety

Minced garlic

2 tsp(s)

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Mixed grain hamburger roll(s)

4 item(s)

Romaine lettuce

2 cup(s), shredded, shredded

Fresh tomato(es)

1 large, cut into 8 slices

Blue cheese

2 tbsp(s), crumbled

Instructions

  1. Off heat, coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray; preheat to medium-high.
  2. In a small bowl, combine barbecue sauce and hot pepper sauce. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce mixture, scallion, celery, bread crumbs, garlic and salt. Using wet hands (to prevent mixture from sticking), form chicken mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties; brush top of burgers with some remaining barbecue sauce mixture.
  3. Place burgers on grill, sauce side down; brush tops of burgers with remaining sauce. Grill, turning once, until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Lightly toast open-faced buns on grill during last minute of cooking.
  4. To serve, place 4 bun bottoms on each of 4 plates. Top each with 1/2 cup of shredded lettuce, 2 tomato slices, a burger, 1/2 tablespoon of cheese and a bun top (cheese will melt a little from hot burger). Yields 1 burger per serving.

Notes

If you like your food really spicy, give the lettuce and tomato a few shots of hot sauce.
