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.

  • 1 pound skinned and boned chicken breasts, coarsely chopped
  • 4 none green onions, chopped
