Asian Chicken Burgers with Peanut Sauce

We are amazed at how many Moms tell us their families like to venture out and taste kid-friendly versions of new ethnic recipes like this one and the ones to follow. These Asian burgers do sport a little heat thanks to the chile paste and ginger. Cool, crisp lettuce leaves provide a good balance.
