Spicy Chicken Burger

Say bye to bland burgers. These healthy, lean chicken patties are spiced up with smoky, chipotle peppers. And nothing pairs better with a burger than a side of fries. Crispy, chili-roasted sweet potato fries add a delicious zing to this flavor-filled meal.



Ingredients for servings

    For the spicy chicken burger

  • ground chicken breast

  • 2 teaspoon grated onion

  • 2 teaspoon chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

  • 0.25 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 0.25 teaspoon salt

  • 1 large egg white

  • 1 teaspoon olive or canola oil

  • 4 whole-grain or potato slider buns split and toasted, if desired

  • 4 lettuce slices

  • For the sweet potato fries

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

Directions

    For the spicy chicken burger

    • Combine chicken, onion, chipotle, cumin, salt and egg white in a medium bowl and mix well with your hands. Shape into 4 patties. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, swirling to coat bottom. Add burgers and cook 4–5 minutes on each side or until completely cooked. Serve between buns with lettuce and tomato.

    For the sweet potato fries

    • Preheat oven to 400°F. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch wedges. (Cut pieces to same size for even cooking.) Toss in oil and chili powder. Spread on nonstick baking sheet or baking sheet lined with nonstick aluminum foil. Bake, turning once, for 30–35 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.
