When I entertain I like to serve food that will blow my company away. My menu doesn't have to be fancy or complicated, but it must be one thing: delicious.
Serving good food makes my guests happy, which makes me happy. But I give myself an extra pat on the back if I can also make my party food affordable and easy to prepare.
Delicious, easy to prepare and affordable are all things that make this Asian Chicken Burger a life-changing meal. I made one last night to try out the recipe and I had a hard time finding just the right words to describe how amazing it was to my husband.
Did you read that? I made one burger. The recipe below serves four, but I was on my own for supper last night and it was so easy to make just a quarter recipe.
I've never made just one single burger before and it turns out that making a solo burger is easy if you have all fresh ingredients!
