Thai Chicken Burgers

Description

Kind of obsessed with these Thai Chicken Burgers from Gwyneth Paltrow's It's All Good Cookbook. Made a few tweaks to the recipe and have been eating them on the regular all month long. Eat them on their own or with some of Lee's Hoisin Sauce. 

Get Started
Step 1

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, garlic, cilantro, shallot, chili flakes, fish sauce, 1 tbsp oil, sea salt, and black pepper. Form into 4-5 patties. Heat a cast iron skillet with a few tablespoons of oil. Place the burgers in the pan and cover. Cook for 7 minutes. Uncover and flip. Cover and cook for another 4 minutes.

Step 2

Serve the burger on a few pieces of lettuce with slices of cucumber and sesame seeds. You can also serve with a little Hoisin Sauce for dipping if you like.

Done!

Serves 4

  • 1 pound ground dark meat chicken
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon avocado or grapeseed oil + more for cooking
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • optional - lettuce, cucumbers, and sesame seeds for serving

Lee's Hoisin Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil like avocado or grapeseed
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chinese five-spice powder
  • 1/2 cup red miso paste
  • 1/2 cup good quality maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar

Heat the oil in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and five-spice powder and cook for 30 seconds. Whisk in the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, and cook, whisking constantly for 3-4 minutes. Let sauce cool. I like to thin it out with equal parts water for a dipping sauce.
