Thai Chicken Burgers

Key Words: Thai flavors, Chicken Burger, Family Friendly, Whole30, Paleo


If you like my Asian Chicken Meatballs, this is a spin-off of those, but in a burger version! Meatballs are a little more work and if you make burgers out of them it's faster and the perfect weeknight meal. These have more of a curry flavor than the meatballs, which adds a whole new dimension to them! 


If you haven't noticed, I love Asian inspired flavors!! I could eat it all day every day. Thai food, pho, sushi, any of it... I love it. Which is why I love bringing these flavors into my kitchen and creating my own meals with them.


You might wonder why I use ground chicken so often and that is because for 10 years I have not eaten beef or pork! (What!!). Yes that is real life and I have had to find ways to work around it, but most of my ground chicken recipes would be just as good with pork or ground beef! Now you are thinking how boring I must be for eating chicken for the last ten years, but that is where my food freedom is at and why I love bringing so many different flavors into my house to experiment with.





Recipes:

Burgers

1 pound ground chicken

1 Tbsp avocado oil

1 jalapeño finely diced

1 cup fresh cilantro

1 large carrot, shredded

1 Tbsp coconut aminos

1 tsp Sriracha

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1 tsp curry powder

1 tsp ginger powder

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper


Curry Sauce

1/4 cup coconut milk

1 Tbsp coconut aminos

1 Tbsp rice vinegar

1 tsp Sriracha

1 tsp curry powder

1 tsp ginger powder

1 tsp garlic powder


Asian Slaw

Cole slaw mix

1 Tbsp coconut aminos

1 Tbsp rice vinegar

1 half lime, juiced


Directions:

  1. Combine all of the burger ingredients together in a mixing bowl and mix together. Be sure it is all combined, but not to over mix or the meat will get dry.

  2. Heat a skillet or pan to medium heat with the avocado oil. Cook burgers on each side for about 8 minutes. Depending on how thick you made the burgers, you may need a little longer to be sure that it is cooked through.

  3. While your burgers are cooking, whisk together all the Curry Sauce ingredients and combine ingredients for the slaw in a separate bowl.

  4. When burgers are done, serve over the slaw and poor curry sauce on top. I love serving this with some fries and cucumbers! Enjoy!
