Tasty Tuesday – Asian Chicken Burgers

Tasty Tuesday

Welcome to another week of Tasty Tuesday here at The Young'ns!
There’s a recipe index under the food tab above if you’re ever looking for a recipe I’ve already blogged.
Every Monday, I plan on trying a new recipe. If it goes well, that’s what I’ll be posting on Tasty Tuesday. If not, I’ll post a tried and true (i.e. something I don’t have to think about too hard) ;)

I made these super tasty burgers last night. The only thing hubby had to say was that they had too much flavor. Too much?? What the heck is he talking about?? Okay, maybe they had a lot of flavors all mixed together, but they were darn tasty and I couldn’t wait to eat my leftovers for lunch today :)

Asian Chicken Burgers

Based on this recipe from Food Network Magazine

{Ingredients}

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 small red onion, halved
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger
  • 4 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 teaspoons hot Asian chili sauce, such as sambal oelek
  • 8 ounces white mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4 whole-wheat sesame hamburger buns

{Directions}

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Mist a baking sheet with cooking spray. Grate the carrot and 1/2 onion into a large bowl. Add the chicken, panko, 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, the ginger, 3 teaspoons soy sauce and 1 teaspoon sambal oelek and mix until combined. Shape the chicken mixture into 4 patties and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until cooked through, about 20 minutes. If yours don’t cook all the way like mine did, pan fry them after they’ve been in the oven for awhile.
  • Meanwhile, thinly slice the remaining 1/2 onion. Toss with the mushrooms, sesame oil, lime juice and the remaining 1 teaspoon soy sauce in a bowl. Mix the remaining 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce and 2 teaspoons sambal oelek with 1 tablespoon water in another bowl.
  • Warm the hamburger buns in the oven. Serve the burgers on the buns with a drizzle of the hoisin-sambal sauce and some of the mushroom mixture.
