Thai Chicken Burgers

These burgers are spicy, healthy and perfect for that day where you want something other than the plain ole burger. My good friend Niki Reynolds shared this with me in 2011 when I was pregnant with my second daughter craving spicy food like no other! Niki is a great chef in the kitchen and I had a fun time cooking with her.

  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 2 lb ground chicken
  • 2.5 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Thai peanut sauce
  • 2 tbsp red curry paste
  • 2 tbsp minced green onions
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp hot pepper sauce (Sriracha HOT chili sauce is the BEST)
  • 8 hamburger buns (whole wheat is great with these), split and toasted
  1. In a small bowl mix together mayonnaise, coconut and mint. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together ground chicken, panko bread crumbs, Thai peanut sauce, curry paste, green onion, parsley, soy sauce, garlic, lemon & lime juices, and hot pepper sauce. Be careful not to over mix.
  3. Divide into 8 equal-size balls. Flatten into patties about 1/2″ thick.
  4. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  5. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill burgers for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until well done. Serve on toasted buns with Coconut-Mint Mayonnaise. Top with parsley, cucumber, red onion, lettuce and tomato (anything goes well with these). ENJOY!
