These burgers are an amazing knock-off of Buffalo chicken wings. They're brushed with a spicy BBQ sauce and then topped with crumbled blue cheese.

Ingredients

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

barbecue sauce

¼ cup(s)

hot pepper sauce

1½ tsp, or to taste

98% fat-free uncooked chicken breast

1 pound(s)

uncooked scallion(s)

½ cup(s), sliced

uncooked celery

¼ cup(s), chopped

dried plain breadcrumbs

¼ cup(s)

minced garlic

2 tsp

table salt

½ tsp

light hamburger roll(s) or bun(s)

4 item(s)

romaine lettuce

2 cup(s), shredded

fresh tomato(es)

1 large, cut into 8 slices

blue cheese

2 Tbsp, 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, breadcrumbs, 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.
