Thai Chicken Burgers

Posted By Chris On August 25, 2008 @ 11:20 pm In Fitness Food,Main Dishes,Thai | 15 Comments

This chicken burger recipe comes from Fitness Food. Ground chicken is mixed with breadcrumbs, cilantro, chili sauce, and spices, and formed into burger-size patties. It’s served with ribbons of cucumber and carrot, and a sweet cilantro-vinegar sauce.

Chris says:

I got bit by the time-bug on this recipe, too!

Lisa says:

What do you mean?

Chris says:

They would have been done 30 minutes earlier if I had remembered the “refrigerate” step.

Lisa says:

At least we had that beet salad to snack on!

Chris says:

True… anyway, I like these. Though I think next time I’ll form them a little thinner so they cook more quickly.

Lisa says:

Yeah these are monsters! What’s this sauce all about?

Chris says:

It’s just a sweet cilantro sauce to go on top… it was supposed to also have peanuts in it, but we were out.

Lisa says:

Other than being so giant, I like these burgers. Although now I’m really full. And…

Chris says:

…yeah?

Lisa says:

I know that when one of us cooks, the other does the dishes, but… how the heck did you use so many dishes tonight?

Chris says:

Hey!

Lisa says:

Just sayin’. I’m getting dishpan hands over here.

Thai Chicken Burgers
1 lb chicken breast
1 cup breadcrumbs
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large handful cilantro, chopped, plus extra
3 tbsp sweet chili sauce
1 tsp ground coriander
3 green onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp white vinegar
2 tbsp finely chopped peanuts
1 carrot
1 cucumber
lettuce
tomato

Cut the chicken into 1″-2″ cubes and place in a food processor, and pulse until minced. Remove to a bowl, and mix with the breadcrumbs, garlic, cilantro, chili sauce, ground coriander, and green onions. Mix together with your hands and form into four patties. Refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes.
To make the dressing, put the sugar, vinegar, and 3 tbsp water in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Simmer for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Cool and stir in the peanuts and extra cilantro.
Peel strips of carrots and cucumber into ribbons.
Heat a grill or grillpan and spray with oil. Cook the burgers for 4+ minutes on each side, or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees is reached. Serve on hamburger buns with the dressing, lettuce, tomato, carrot, and cucumber.

4 Servings.
