Serving Size: Makes 4 burgers
4 tablespoons (½ stick) of butter
2 small stalks of celery, finely chopped
1 small carrot, grated
1 medium shallot, finely chopped
teaspoon of powdered chicken broth
teaspoon of celery seeds
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup and 2 tablespoons of milk
1/3 cup frozen peas
Freshly ground black pepper
cup of panko breadcrumbs
1 pound of ground chicken
Non-stick cooking spray
4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted
1. In a cast iron skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the celery, carrot, shallot, broth, celery seeds and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool to room temperature.
2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the flour and garlic powder and cook, whisking, for about 1 minute. Gradually add 1 cup of milk and bring the mixture to a boil, whisking continuously. Continue to simmer, whisking until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add the peas, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and a generous amount of pepper. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
3. Mix the panko with the cooked vegetables, then stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of milk and let stand for 5 minutes. Add the ground chicken, 1 teaspoon of salt and a pinch of pepper.
4. Shape chicken mixture into four 3/4 inch thick patties. Spray the pan and one side of the patties with non-stick spray. Heat the pan over medium-high heat, then place the patties in the pan, spray side down, and spray the tops of the patties. Lower the heat to medium, then cover and cook for 2 minutes. Flip patties and cook, uncovered, until cooked through and centers are firm, about 2 minutes more.
5. Serve on buns, garnished with pea sauce, with a little sauce on the side.
