Thai Chicken Burgers

UPDATE: My husband suggested adding chopped water chestnuts to these burgers and it gave them the crunch and texture they need! I will be using water chestnuts in this recipe from now on.

I was looking online for new recipes using chicken or turkey and I came across this recipe for thai chicken meatballs. It sounded okay, but it needed some additions and changes, in my opinion. Here’s what I did with it.

Mix together the following:

1 lb. ground chicken

1/2 cup plain bread crumbs

1/4 cup chopped green onions

1/2 Tbsp. ground corriander

2 Tbsp. Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce

zest and juice of 1 lime

1 egg

1 large clove garlic, minced

1 inch ginger, grated

1 Tbsp. soy sauce

1 tsp. fish sauce

Form into burgers and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side either on a grill or in a pan on the stove. Top with a little more of the Sriracha sauce if you like it really spicy!
