Chicken Burger, First Stamford Place (Corporate Image Dining Services)

Menu Part: 
Sandwich/Wrap
Cuisine Type: 
American
Serves: 
1 burger

Fran Schuelke, executive chef for Corporate Image Dining Services at First Stamford Café, in Connecticut, says many of her customers are trying to eat healthier, so coming up with chicken dishes that they’ll accept seemed like a no-brainer. This chicken burger, Schuelke says, is a good fit for summer because it’s light and made with fresh, local ingredients. The café grinds its own chicken for the patties, uses a little bit of egg white to hold them together and seasons the patties with only a touch of scallion, salt and pepper. “I think simplicity sometimes is better,” Schuelke says. The burger is topped with a Rainbow Cole Slaw, which is mayonnaise free, as well as a housemade Sriracha Lime Mayo. The burger is served on a multigrain bun.
