Chicken Burgers, Thai Style

photo (35)

This is a recipe for my husband as I’m a pescatarian and he isn’t. He describes it as being really delicious and ranks it in the top 5 of all the chicken burgers he’s ever had. The chilli makes it quite spicy while the coriander and garlic makes the chicken burgers nice and fragrant. It’s also nice and moist although he recommends eating it with some sauce. This definitely has a Thai taste to it and has a good combination of flavours. He highly recommends it because it’s homemade with healthy ingredients and tastes great.  This is wheat free, gluten free and sugar free and is suitable for those following the elimination diet. This recipe is from Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook “It’s All Good“.

Serves 4

  • 1lb ground chicken
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 2/3 cup of coriander
  • 2 shallots finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced red chilli
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil (e.g canola, grapeseed or saffron oil)

Thoroughly mix the chicken with the garlic, cilantro, shallots, red chilli, fish sauce, salt and pepper. Form the mixture into 4 burgers with a thickness of 3/4 inch.

Heat a grill or grill pan over a medium heat. Rub each burger on both sides with a bit of the safflower oil and grill for about 8 minutes on the first side and another 5 minutes on the second, or until nicely marked and firm to the touch.
