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.


  • 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)
