Asian Chicken Burgers

When I got this month's Food Network Magazine in the mail, I was excited to see "Light Family Dinners, Easy Low-Cal Recipes." This is the one that really caught my eye and it was delicious!

4 servings, 9 WW points plus per serving (including the bun)


Cooking Spray
1 small carrot
1 small red onion, halved
1 pound ground chicken
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 tbs hoisin sauce
1 tbs grated fresh ginger
4 tbs low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp hot Asian chili sauce, such as sambal oelek
4 whole wheat hamburger buns


Preheat oven to 375. Mist baking sheet with cooking spray. Grate the carrot and 1/2 onion into large bowl. Add chicken, hoisin sauce, ginger, 3 tbs soy sauce, panko and chili sauce, and mix until well combined. Shape into 4 patties and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until cooked through, about 20 minutes. Switch oven to broil to brown up the patties at the very end.

Meanwhile, slice the remaining half of red onion. Saute on med low heat in a pan sprayed with cooking spray. Add the remaining tablespoon of soy sauce to onions as they caramelize.
