Thai Chicken Burgers


from my beloved cookbook, "It's All Good." Do yourself a favor and buy it.

These burgers are out-of-control amazing. Packed with spice and filled with fresh flavor, these are a regular in our house.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound organic ground chicken (preferably dark meat)

  • 2 garlic cloves, very finely minced

  • 2/3 cup finely chopped cilantro

  • 2 shallots or green onions, very finely minced

  • 1 teaspoon (or more!) very finely minced red chili or thai green chiles (I find them fresh at Whole Foods in the produce section)

  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil (preferably coconut or grapeseed)

Directions: 1. Thoroughly mix chicken with garlic, cilantro, shallots/green onions, red/green chili, fish sauce, salt, and pepper. Form mixture into 4 burgers, each about 3/4-inch thick. 2. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Rub each burger on both sides with a bit of oil and grill for about 8 minutes on the first side and another 5 minutes on the second, or until nicely marked and firm to the touch.

3. Serve on a toasted bun or on a lettuce wrap, with a dollop of sriracha mayo (recipe below).

** You'll definitely want some sriracha mayo on these...
