The hub is going overseas for a couple weeks due to work and the elder kid is studying hard for his Science examination, so I wanted to make something special for them to give them some encouragement.
Both of them like a little heat in their burgers and sandwiches. In fact whenever we are in Subway for a meal, the two of them never fail to order their subs with honey mustard sauce and sweet onion sauce. So I decided to bring the flavors to them at home - Honey Mustard Chicken Burger with Caramelized Onions. Then I become greedy and decided, why not also add in creamy mushrooms for the vegetable intake! Haha...
Here's the recipe...
Honey Mustard Chicken Burger with Caramelized Onions (Makes 5-6 burger patties )
To make the patties:
500g minced chicken
4 tbsp honey mustard sauce
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tbsp dried parsley (can also use fresh finely chopped parsley)
1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
For the burger bun:
5-6 burger buns
5-6 slices cheddar cheese
Butter to spread
Butter-head lettuce (optional)
In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients for the patties. Using hands or a spoon, mix until well combined.
Take a small portion of the mixture and shape into a patty and set aside. Continue the same until all used up.
In a heated frying pan, add some cooking oil. When the oil is heated, add the patties into the pan. Cook each side approx. 5-7 mins, making sure it is browned before flipping.
Dish up the patties and drain off the oil using a kitchen towel.
Take a buttered burger bun and place one slice of cheese and the creamy mushroom.
Put a patty on top of the bun. Top with caramelized onions and lettuce (if desired).
The hub and son loved the burger. The hub even complained that the caramelized onions not enough! A sinful and filling meal that is simple to do and great in taste!
