    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.

    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.
