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.
1¼ pounds ground chicken
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1½ tablespoons canola oil
¼ cup hoisin sauce
1 cup shredded carrots (from 2 large carrots)
½ cup cilantro leaves and tender stems
¼ cup torn fresh mint
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
2 teaspoons sugar
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
¼ cup mayonnaise
Waffle fries, for serving
How to Make It
Place ground chicken, pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Mix together with your hands and shape into 4 patties.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Cook patties until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 165°F, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Brush patties on 1 side with half of the hoisin sauce; flip patties and brush with remaining hoisin. Remove from heat.
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.
