Spicy Asian-Style Chicken Burgers with Sweet Chili Sauce

>> Monday, March 1, 2010

No picture taken when I made this recipe 2 months ago...next time. 

Inspired by Once Upon a Plate 

Chicken Patties
1 pound ground chicken  
2-3 tablespoons EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
2 tablespoons panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1 medium size apple, peeled and diced  (preferably organic Granny Smith)
1 tablespoon fresh ginger root, finely grated
freshly crackled pepper 
2 teaspoons pepper hot sauce (more if you like spicy)
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon scallions, sliced (white and green parts)
2 to 3 tablespoons cilantro leaves, chopped
Spicy Mayo Spread (See the recipe below)
Cole slaw for garnish (optional)
Sweet Chili Sauce to taste for garnish (It's a MUST or the burgers won't be tasty without the sauce)

Spicy Mayo Spread
1/2 cup light mayonnaise, mixed with 1 teaspoon hot sauce.

Directions:
Add the ground chicken in a medium-large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly so ingredients are evenly distributed through the meat.  Divide the mixture into 4 regular-size patties.  Chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or more (this step is necessary to firm the patties so they hold their shape while cooking---no egg to bind them in this recipe)  

Preheat a heavy frying pan over medium heat. Add EVOO and add patties to hot oil (don't crowd). Cook for 6 to 7 minutes on each side (depending upon how thick the burgers are), turning once, until meat is thoroughly cooked.  Transfer them to a plate and keep warm by tenting with foil.

To assemble, toast buns halves until golden.  Spread the spicy mayo over toasted bun bottoms.  Place a pattie over spicy mayo; top with cole slaw (optional) and sweet chili sauce.  Repeat with the remaining patties and serve immediately.  Enjoy!
