Burgers are great, but sometimes it’s nice to mix up what’s between the bun. Here the answer is excitingly original: hoisin-glazed chicken burgers. Simple chicken patties get tons of flavor here, thanks to a finishing glaze of delicious hoisin sauce. Topped with a lime-infused carrot slaw, which has a generous serving of cilantro and mint, too, this burger is not only tasty, but fresh and hearty. If you make the carrot topping ahead, make sure to drain off any extra liquid before topping the patties to avoid making the buns soggy.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place ground chicken, pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Mix together with your hands and shape into 4 patties.

  • Toss carrots, cilantro, mint, lime juice, sugar, and remaining ½ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.

  • Build burgers with buns, mayonnaise, patties, and carrot slaw. Serve with fries.
