Blue Cheese Chicken Burgers
- Total Time
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.
cooking spray2 spray(s)
barbecue sauce¼ cup(s)
hot pepper sauce1 ½ tsp, or to taste
uncooked ground chicken breast1 pound(s)
uncooked scallion(s)½ cup(s), sliced
uncooked celery¼ cup(s), chopped
dried plain breadcrumbs¼ cup(s)
minced garlic2 tsp
table salt½ tsp
light hamburger roll(s) or bun(s)4 item(s)
romaine lettuce2 cup(s), shredded
fresh tomato(es)1 large, cut into 8 slices
blue cheese2 Tbsp, crumbled
- Off heat, coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray; preheat to medium-high.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
