Asian Chicken Burgers

Angie Robinson


Go Far East with your burgers this weekend!
I love these tasty burgers on the grill. They are lower in fat than your regular beef burgers. Feel free to add more or less of the spices.
I have made them without the veggie topping and they still rock!

I love mine topped with reduced fat swiss or monterey jack cheese.

pinch tips: How to Brown Chicken





10 Min


10 Min


1 lb
ground chicken or turkey
2 Tbsp
soy sauce
1/2 tsp
minced fresh ginger -or 1/4 tsp dry
1 tsp
minced garlice
1 Tbsp
sesame oil
4 Tbsp
dry bread crumbs
1 medium
carrot, peeled
english cucumber, peeled
sesame seed hamburger buns; toasted
slices of cheese; if desired
salt and pepper


mayo to top the buns
splash of rice vinegar
pinch of sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

In a bowl combine the chicken, soy sauce, spices and sesame oil.Do not over-mix or it may make them tough. Season with salt and pepper.
With a vegetable peeler cut the cucumber and carrot vertically into long, curly strips. Combine them both in a bowl. You may add a tiny splash of rice vinegar and pinch of sugar to them; it is up to you.
Heat your grill or pan to medium. Shape the burgers into 4 patties. Cook for about 5-6 min per side; or till golden brown and cooked through.
Melt the cheese on the burgers during the last minute. Place them on the toasted buns; top with the carrot and cucumber.
** You may want to add some mayo to each bun-I add a drop of the sesame oil to the mayo and some garlic powder and stir well**
