Chicken Burgers with Peanut Sauce

Chicken Burgers with Peanut Sauce

Savor the dynamic mix of spicy Thai chile paste and sweet and creamy homemade peanut sauce. Worked right into the patties, the spices give the chicken its robust flavor.

No recipe can offer too much flavor for Assistant Food Editor Ann Taylor Pittman. Her burger is made spicy with Thai chile paste and rounded out with a sweet, creamy Thai-style peanut sauce. Onion sprouts, which look similar to alfalfa sprouts, have a pungent bite. You can find them next to the alfalfa sprouts in many supermarkets.

Yield: Makes 4 servings

 

Ingredients:

 

    Sauce:

•  2 tablespoons peanut butter

•  2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce

•  1 1/2 teaspoons dark sesame oil

•  1 teaspoon water

•  1 garlic clove, minced

  Burgers:

•  1/2 cup finely chopped green onions

•  1 tablespoon chile paste with garlic

•  2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger

•  2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce

•  1/4 teaspoon salt

•  1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, chopped

•  Cooking spray

•  4 (2-ounce) sandwich rolls with sesame seeds

•  1 cup onion sprouts or alfalfa sprouts

 

Preparation:

1.  To prepare sauce, combine first 6 ingredients, stirring with a whisk until smooth.

2.  Prepare grill.

3.  To prepare burgers, place onions and next 5 ingredients (onions through chicken) in a food processor; process until coarsely ground. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

4.  Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until done. Place rolls, cut sides down, on grill rack; grill 1 minute or until toasted. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each roll; top each serving with 1/4 cup sprouts, about 1 tablespoon sauce, and top half of roll. Yield 4 servings.
