A most excellent summer burger!

Sometimes I get really excited about a new meal, and this is one of those times.  I cannot take credit for this, as I got this recipe from Gwenith Palttow’s new cookbook. The first time I made it I really liked it, but then I made it a second time with some changes and LOVED it. Tate actually called it “delish!” and I don’t even know where he got that word from, but whatever. I’m just happy the kid liked it!

Here is our rendition of Chicken Thai Burgers

  • 2 lb white or dark ground chicken meat (we prefer dark)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 4-5 scallions, center parts chopped
  • 1 tsp celtic salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp tamari (gluten free soy) or coconut aminos
  • 2-3 tbsp coconut oil or avovado oil

In a large bowl, mix all (except for the coconut oil) of the ingredients together. Next turn your skillet pan on high, add 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil and fry each side of your burger until it’s a nice golden brown. Then turn your stove to low, cook for another 5-10 more minutes on low until the burger is no longer pink in the middle. Be sure not to overcook as it will continue to cook just a bit once you turn the stove off.

Enjoy! These make awesome leftovers and are also great on salads.

Oh and speaking of salads, our new favorite love, Tessamae’s, had a sampling at Whole Foods the other day. We discovered that we loved most of their dressings and not just the Balsamic.

We ended up with 3 new bottles (and 3 new favorites) that included Zesty Ranch, Soy Ginger, Cracker Pepper…

Still can’t wait to try some of the others down the road. Happy weekend everyone!!

  • Lynn - The burgers look yummy! I just recently found your blog and love it! I’ve been having fun browsing through your archives. Anyway, I’ve been debating getting Gwyneth’s Paltrow’s cookbook – how do you like it overall?ReplyCancel

    • landriav - Thanks Lynn! Sorry for my delay in response. I actually borrowed my friend’s book. I would like to get it and check out some of the other recipes. I hear you can get it at Costco for about $15!ReplyCancel

  • Susan Carroll - I made these tonight Landria and they were a hit! Both boys ate their entire burgers. (My daughter wasn’t here and she would be a good test.) They asked for me to make them again so we just might add them to our regular rotation.ReplyCancel

    • landriav - Awesome!!! So great to hear Susan!! Thanks for telling me. It’s always so great to hear from you guys!ReplyCancel

  • Mani @ A New Life Wandering - I am making these tomorrow.
    Any suggestions for toppings with those flavors?ReplyCancel

    • landriav - Hey Mani, Good question. Sauteed onions and mushrooms? It goes well with bok choy on the side. I always love guacamole but not sure you’d like it with the asian flavors. It’s also good with Chinese spicy mustard. Sorry I’m probably not much help. Hope you like the burgers!ReplyCancel
