This recipe is one of my favorite meals to make when the weather gets warmer, reminding me that summer is right around the corner! These burgers are a lightened up version of one of my favorite chicken burger recipes. I ate mine on a lettuce wrap and it was the perfect combination! My kids love to eat these burgers with a little cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce, so this is an easy meal that can be made kid friendly as well.
This slaw tastes better if it sits for a little in the fridge (I usually make it two hours prior to serving).
Organic Broccoli Slaw (found at Trader Joe’s)
1-2 tablespoons of Mayo (I use Just Mayo, it is vegan and non-gmo)
1-2 tablespoons of Frank’s Hot Sauce
3 scallions diced (just the greens)
Mix all ingredients together and place in fridge.
1 lb of ground chicken
2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce (I like Annie’s Organic Sweet & Spicy BBQ or Stubb’s All Natural Sticky & Sweet BBQ)
2 scallions diced (just the greens)
salt & pepper
Mix all ingredients and form into burgers. In a skillet or grill pan, heat olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) reduce heat to medium and cook burgers (about 8 minutes per side, or until cooked through).
Serve burger on a lettuce wrap topped with spicy broccoli slaw.
