Mmm, Mmm Monday-Buffalo Chicken Burgers

I really thought I had already posted this recipe because it's one of our favorites! If you like the Chicken Zucchini Burgers, it might become a favorite of yours too.

I actually like this recipe a little more that the zucchini burgers. These have a ton of flavor and the sauce gives them a little something extra.

Buffalo Chicken Burgers
adapted from Weight Watchers

1/4 cup bbq sauce
1 1/2 tsp. hot sauce, or to taste
1 pound uncooked extra lean ground chicken breast
1/2 cup scallion, sliced
1/4 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
2 tsp. minced gralic
1/2 tsp. salt

Here's your ingredient list. Pretty simple, but the result is tasty! Combine the barbeque sauce and hot sauce together in a small bowl. I added about a teaspoon of hot sauce and it wasn't too spicy for our family.

Combine your other ingredients into a small bowl. The kids like the veggies on the softer side so I saute them a little before adding them to the mixture, but you can leave them uncooked if you like some crunch. Add one tablespoon of the sauce to the chicken mixture.

Combine well and form into four patties.  The mixture will be sticky, so I usually cut out four pieces of wax paper and form the patties on the paper. Then I can flip them directly onto the grill and peel the paper off.  Brush the tops of the patties with half of the sauce.  Place them sauce side down onto the grill and baste the tops with the rest of the sauce.

 Grill on medium-high for about 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Turn once if you're using a regular grill.

If you want the true Buffalo chicken taste, you can add some blue cheese crumbles. 

Reviews from The Peanut Gallery

Me: 5 out of 5 stars. I really love these. We always have one extra patty and I enjoy it the next day cut up with a salad. 

Andy: 5 out of 5 stars. These have great flavor. He likes them better when the veggies are sauteed.  

She doesn't like any type of meat, especially when she can see "green stuff." She says she loves these but it took a lot of coaxing to get her to eat it.


 She loved them! No complaints out of her and she asked for seconds.
