Ingredients

Papaya Slaw

6 OZ SHREDDED GREEN PAPAYA (FROM 1 MEDIUM PAPAYA)

1/2 RED ONION, THINLY SLICED

2 TSP GRATED LIME ZEST

3 TBSP PLUS 2 TSP FRESH LIME JUICE

1 TBSP FISH SAUCE

1 TBSP brown sugar

Chicken Burger

1 lb GROUND CHICKEN THIGH MEAT

1/2 cup PANKO OR GLUTEN FREE BREAD CRUMBS

1/4 CUP COCONUT CREAM (THICK MILK SOLIDS FROM 1 CAN CHILLED COCONUT MILK)

1/2 CUP CHOPPED FRESH CILANTRO

2 GARLIC CLOVES, MINCED

2 TSP KOSHER SALT

1 TSP GROUND CUMIN

1 TSP FRESHLY GROUND BLACK PEPPER

1/2 TSP GROUND GINGER

1/2 CUP MAYONNAISE

1 1/2 TSP CURRY POWDER

1 TBSP VEGETABLE OIL

8 LARGE LEAVES BUTTER LETTUCE OR 4 HAMBURGER BUNS

Preparation

For the Papaya Slaw: In a medium bowl, combine the papaya, onion, 3 Tbsp of the lime juice, fish sauce and the brown sugar. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use, up to 3 hours.

In a large bowl, stir together the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, coconut cream, cilantro, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, cumin, lime zest, and remaining 2 tsp lime juice until thoroughly combined. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. If the mixture seems too wet or dry adjust with breadcrumbs or coconut milk until it stays together.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise and curry powder. Set aside.

When ready to cook, set temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Using your hands, form the chicken mixture into four equal patties.

Brush each burger with the vegetable oil on both sides. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until the burgers reach 165℉ internally. Remove from the grill and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Place each burger on a leaf of lettuce then top with curry mayonnaise and pickled papaya slaw. Top with a second lettuce leaf and serve.

Alternatively, use regular hamburger buns and pile high with the burgers, curry mayonnaise and papaya slaw. Enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
