Qmee recipes – miso-glazed chicken burgers with cabbage-apple slaw

It’s the 4th July tomorrow, US Independence Day, many people will be celebrating by having family get-togethers, parties and barbecues. So this week, our Qmee recipe is the perfect addition to a barbecue! As well as your usual hot dogs and beef burgers, why not try these miso-glazed chicken burgers with cabbage-apple slaw on top?

Here’s what you’ll need…

2 lb. ground white-meat chicken
Whole-wheat breadcrumbs
1 medium onion
2 stalk celery
2 egg whites
3 tbsp. sesame oil
Sea Salt
Freshly ground pepper
1/2 c. miso paste
3 tbsp. brown sugar
Cider vinegar
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
2 shredded cabbage (purple and/or white)
2 crisp, sweet red apples
8 Sesame buns
Cooking spray

Here’s what you’ll need to do…

  1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, breadcrumbs, 2/3 cup onion, celery, egg whites, and 2 tablespoons sesame oil, and season with 2 teaspoons each of salt and pepper.
  2. Shape into 8 equal (about 5 1/2 ounces each) patties.
  3. Place patties between squares of waxed paper and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.
  4. In a small bowl, combine miso paste, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons cider vinegar.
  5. Equally divide miso glaze into 2 bowls (1 for grilling and 1 for drizzling on slaw). Set both aside.
  6. In a large bowl, toss to combine cabbage, apples, and remaining onion, sesame oil, brown sugar, and cider vinegar. Set aside.
  7. Heat grill to medium and grill buns, split side down, until warmed, about 2 minutes then transfer to a platter.
  8. Coat grill with cooking spray and grill burgers, about 6 minutes per side.
  9. Brush burgers with miso glaze from the first bowl, flip, and grill for 1 1/2 minutes more. Repeat for other side.
  10. Place burgers on bottom buns; then layer with slaw, a drizzle of miso glaze from the second bowl, and top buns.

Compared with a typical cheeseburger slathered in mayo, this miso-glazed chicken version topped with flavorful slaw saves you 109 calories and 24 grams of fat – much more healthy and still absolutely delicious!
