(OPEN):
IT WAS A BIG WEEK FOR BRIGITTE NGUYEN, OF LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY.  FIRST, SHE GOT ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED; THEN, SHE WON 50-THOUSAND DOLLARS, IN THIS YEAR'S "NATIONAL CHICKEN COOKING CONTEST", HELD IN SAN ANTONIO.  SHE CALLS HER GRAND-PRIZE-WINNING ENTRY, "CHINESE CHICKEN BURGERS WITH RAINBOW SESAME SLAW"...

(NGUYEN):
"IT'S A BURGER PATTY MADE WITH GROUND CHICKEN; AND THEN, IT IS GLAZED WITH A HOISIN SAUCE, AND THEN TOPPED WITH AN ASIAN-STYLE COLESLAW THAT'S MADE WITH JULIENNE JICAMA, DIFFERENT-COLORED BELL PEPPERS, AND SNOW PEAS.  BURGERS HAVE, SORT OF, JUST BECOME MY THING:  I'VE HAD A LOT OF FUN PUTTING ETHNIC SPINS ON CLASSIC AMERICAN FARE; AND SO, THAT'S JUST HOW THIS BURGER WAS BORN.  IT'S FIGURING OUT NEW WAYS TO, YOU KNOW--INSTEAD OF JUST HAVING A GOOD-OLD AMERICAN CHEESEBURGER--TRYING DIFFERENT MEATS, AND TRYING DIFFERENT SEASONINGS.  AND, I ALWAYS HAVE A LOT OF THINGS IN MY ASIAN-SPICE CABINET.  SO, THAT'S WHAT INSPIRED THIS.
"

(BRIDGE):
"MIAMI HERALD" FOOD EDITOR
, KATHY MARTIN--WHO CHAIRED THIS YEAR'S JUDGING PANEL--ADDS THAT THE ZESTY ASIAN FLAVOR MADE THE DIFFERENCE...

"THE BURGERS THAT BRIGITTE MADE STOOD OUT JUST BECAUSE THEY WERE SO INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS:  IT WAS A TREMENDOUSLY FLAVORFUL BURGER--AND A NICE KIND OF COHERENT FLAVOR PROFILE; IT WAS AN ASIAN FLAVOR PROFILE.
"
