Burger INGREDIENTS
  • 3/4 pound extra-lean ground chicken breast (all-white meat variety)
  • 1/3 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp onion, finely chopped
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp Frank’s hot sauce + 2 extra tbsp (for optional topping)
  • cooking spray
  • 4 whole grain sandwich thin buns (about 100 calories each), optional
Celery Slaw INGREDIENTS
  • 4 stalks celery, sliced in thin, long strips
  • 2 whole carrots (or 5-6 baby carrots), sliced in thin, long strips
  • 2 tbsp non-fat, plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
METHOD
  1. First make coleslaw. Combine yogurt and vinegar in a small bowl. Add blue cheese, breaking up any large chunks so the cheese is evenly distributed. Toss celery and carrot strips with blue cheese/yogurt mixture and refrigerate until burgers are ready.
  2. To make burgers, add celery, onion, and garlic to a food processor or mini food chopper and pulse until chopped uniformly.
  3. In a large bowl, add ground chicken, celery mixture, egg white, and 2 tbsp of hot sauce. Stir until combined.
  4. Form mixture into 4 burgers. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat liberally coated with cooking spray. Grill for 18-20 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time. After cooking, brush each burgers with remaining 2 tbsp of hot sauce if desired.
  5. Place each burger on a bun and top with coleslaw.
