Serves: 4-5
Ingredients
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into four or five pieces
  • 2 celery hearts, cut into large pieces
  • 1 scallion, white and light green parts only, peeled and chopped
  • ½ yellow onion, peeled and quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Buffalo sauce plus more for topping (I used Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce)
  • 1 lb. ground chicken breast
Instructions
  1. Add carrot, celery, scallion, onion, garlic and parsley to the bowl of a food processor. Process on low or use the pulse setting until everything is finely chopped.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat.
  3. Add carrot, celery, scallion, onion, garlic and parsley mixture to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook on medium-low for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. This will soften the veggies and give them a more mild flavor. Let cool 1-2 minutes.
  5. Place ground chicken breast in a large mixing bowl. Add 1 tablespoon Buffalo sauce and veggie mixture. Mix until evenly distributed.
  6. Form chicken burger patties into the size you desire (will make 4-5 burgers depending on size).
  7. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  8. Place burgers in skillet and cook for approximately 15 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165º F. You can flip about every 5 minutes until burgers are evenly browned on both sides.
  9. Remove burgers from pan and transfer to paper towels to absorb grease. Drain excess oil from skillet.
  10. Return burgers to the skillet. Pour your desired amount of Buffalo sauce on top of each burger. Flip the burger over so the Buffalo sauce side faces down. Cook on medium heat for 30 seconds to soak in the Buffalo flavor.
  11. Repeat the process by adding another spoonful of Buffalo sauce to the "new" top of each burger. Flip over and cook for another 30 seconds.
  12. Enjoy with the toppings of your choice.
