About this recipe: These chicken burgers taste just like Buffalo wings, except they are healthier! Chicken burgers are barbecued and served in a roll, with blue cheese dressing and chopped celery.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 tablespoons reduced fat soured cream
  • 4 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 675g chicken meat, pulsed in a food processor until finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chicken seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
  • 4 sandwich rolls, split
  • 4 leaves iceberg lettuce
  • 60g celery, diced

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate. Stir the soured cream, blue cheese and Worcestershire sauce together in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Mix the chicken, 4 tablespoons hot sauce, celery salt, chicken seasoning, paprika and cayenne pepper together in a mixing bowl until evenly blended. Form into four 1.75cm thick burgers.
  3. Cook the chicken burgers on the preheated barbecue 6 to 7 minutes until well marked. Spray the uncooked top of the burger with cooking oil spray and flip the burgers over. Brush the cooked side with 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce and continue cooking until no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read at least 74 degrees C.
  4. To assemble the burgers, place a lettuce leaf on each roll bottom. Top with a burger, then spoon on 2 tablespoons of blue cheese sauce and 2 tablespoons celery. Place the top of the roll on top, then serve.

This is a really nice recipe, it tastes better if you don't put in the avocado and the blue cheese and worcestershire sauce and celery - 10 May 2014
