buffalo-chicken-burger

My husband lived in Buffalo, New York before we were married, so he’s a bit of a snob when it comes to wings.  Over the years, he has tried to raise me to his standards.  Though I still don’t have the same discriminating palate he has, I thought this chicken burger would be a fun, lower fat way to enjoy the flavor of Buffalo Wings.

I used this great seasoning and sauce that I found at Whole Foods. I’m going to look around, though, to see if I can find a comparable brand that can be found in more places. I’ll let you know.

2. With a fork, gently break up the chicken in a large bowl. Mix in seasoning, and egg.
