These tangy burgers put a Thai twist on your favorite all-American dish. If you have trouble finding ground skinless chicken breast, you can substitute ground skinless turkey breast, which is more commonly available. Both are low SmartPoints poultry options (0 on some myWW plans!) that pack the protein. With ginger, scallions, lime and Sriracha, the flavors are strong, spicy, and savory, and the aromas are potent without being pungent. Find a light hamburger bun for just 3 or 4 SmartPoints. Top with cucumber and onion for extra veggies and crunch, and a squeeze of lime to bring out the zesty flavors!
