Chicken Burger with Red Cabbage Slaw


Insanely good burger and the perfect bun!

6 VdF#7559 P#646059 Brioche Buns, sliced and toasted

1½ lbs. ground chicken

1½ cups small-diced peeled Granny Smith apple  

½ cup small-diced red onion  

¼ cup small-diced celery  

6 Tbs. mayonnaise

3 tsp. Dijon mustard

2 tsp. minced garlic

2 tbs. finely chopped herbs such as ; Parsley, Chives

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 Tbs. vegetable oil

2 tsp. fresh lime juice; more as needed

2 cups packed thinly sliced red cabbage 



In a medium bowl, combine the chicken with 1/2 cup of the apple, the onion, celery, 3 Tbs. of the mayonnaise, 2 tsp. of the mustard, the garlic, chopped herbs, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Gently mix with your hands and form six 1/2-inch-thick patties.  

In a nonstick skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat until shimmering hot. Cook the burgers until golden-brown on one side, about 5 minutes. Flip, and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 165°F on an instant-read thermometer, 5 to 9 minutes more.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix the remaining 3 Tbs. mayonnaise and 1 tsp. mustard with the lime juice. Add the remaining apple, the cabbage, and 1/8 tsp. each salt and pepper; toss to combine. Season to taste with more lime juice, salt, and pepper.

Serve the burgers in the Buns, topped with the slaw, or serve slaw on the side.
