Buffalo Chicken Burger with Creamy Slaw (Throwback Thursdays)

Photo circa 2011
If you like the taste of buffalo chicken wings with a spicy hot sauce, then you will really enjoy this burger.  My kids love dipping fries, nuggets and more into Frank's Red Hot Sauce, so I new this would be a hit with them.  I was right because they loved it.  The adults ate it with the creamy slaw topping, but the kids just ate it straight on the bun and they could not stop asking when I was going to make it again.   

Note:  Throwback Thursday is a new series where I take some of my original posts here on  Curry and Comfort and redo them so I can take better photos.

1lb ground chicken
salt and black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp paprika

Your Buffalo Sauce:
2 Tbs of melted butter
3 Tbs of Red Hot Sauce ( I recommend Franks Red Hot)
1 Tbs of Ketchup

Mix all ingredients together well.

Directions:  Mix all burger ingredients well and form your four large patties.  
Use a large skillet and get it heated on med-high heat.  Add 1 Tbs of canola oil and add your burgers.  Cook on both sides until browned and  almost cooked through.

Low the heat to med-low and coat both sides of the burger with the sauce evenly.  Allow to fry the burgers until they are fully cooked.
Serves 4.  Serve with fries or any vegetable side and Creamy Slaw (recipe below).

Note:  If you are a fan of blue cheese and wings, you can also top the burger with blue cheese crumbles.  If you want it creamy stir the crumbles into some sour cream and season with salt and pepper.

To make the Creamy Slaw:
 You will need:
  • 1lb of shredded cabbage or a bag of shredded cabbage
  • 2 serrano or jalapeno peppers seeded and finely diced
  • 1 small onion finely diced or sliced
    To make the creamy dressing:
    • 2-3 Tbs of sour cream (reduced fat is fine, but not non-fat)
    • 1 Tbs of mayo  (reduced fat is fine, but not non-fat)
    • photo circa 2011
      sprinkle of granulated garlic powder (to taste)
    • sprinkle of celery seeds
    • sprinkle of sugar (to taste)
    • 1 Tbs of rice wine vinegar
    • salt and pepper to taste
    Mix well and add dressing to coleslaw.  Mix both together well and allow to chill for 30 minutes to let the flavors develop.  Serve with Burger.  Enjoy.
