1 small carrot
1 small red onion, halved
1 pound ground chicken
1/4 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger
4 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
3 teaspoons hot Asian chili sauce, such as sambal oelek
8 ounces white mushrooms, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
Juice of 1 lime
4 whole-wheat sesame hamburger buns
- Crank up the over to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a baking sheet with the cooking spray. Shred the carrot and ½ onion into a large bowl, and add the chicken, panko, 2 tbs hoisin sauce, ginger, 3 tsp soy sauce and 1 tsp sambal oelek and mix with a large spoon or hands until combined. Shape the chicken mixture into 4 patties and lay on the sprayed sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
- While this is in the over, thinly slice the rest of the onion, and toss is in a bowl with the mushrooms, sesame oil, 1 tsp soy sauce and lime juice. In another bowl, combine 2 tbs hoisin sauce and 2 tsps sambal oelek with 1 tbs water.
- Toast those hamburger buns in the over for a few minutes until warm. Place the patties on the buns and top with the hoisin-sambal sauce and the mushroom mixture. Enjoy!
