When you think of slaw, a burger might not be the first thing that comes to mind. But, I think it should!

While I love a good hot dog topped with lots of tasty slaw, my Sweet Chili Chicken Burgers will give any hot diggity a run for it’s money.

While sometimes I like my burger overloaded with cheese and tons of toppings, that’s not always a requirement for big flavor. Even though this burger may seem kind of basic, it’s anything but boring. The crunchy slaw atop a juicy chicken burger with the addition of more Heinz Chili Sauce combines for a mouthful of big flavor!

It’s crazy simple to prepare and you end up with a burger with lots of taste AND texture. It’s a little bit sweet and a little bit savory. And the slaw makes it a little crunchy while the soft bakery bun adds that soft texture for the perfect balance that just can’t be beat!

This is one of my favorite prep-ahead recipes. Like most slaws, this one gets better the longer it sits. So I will often make the slaw for this recipe the day before and then prep my burgers the next morning. That way when dinnertime rolls around, I can throw the burgers on the grill and dinner is ready in less than 15 minutes. On a busy weeknight, this recipe is a dream come true!
