Indian Spiced Chicken Burgers With Spicy Peanut Sauce

“I adapted this recipe from Food & Wine Magazine to lighten it up a bit. Adding a little oil to the patties kept them nice and moist. The satay-style peanut sauce adds a spicy kick. Since ground chicken can be fairly bland on its own, this was an extremely flavorful way to punch it up.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the chicken, ¼ cup of chopped onion, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon chili powder, ½ teaspoon salt and garam masala. Form into 4 patties.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat ½ tablespoon olive oil. Add 2 tablespoons of chopped onion and 1 teaspoon of chili powder. Cook over moderate heat, stirring until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add the coconut milk and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and whisk in the peanut butter, sriracha and hot water. Stir in the peanuts and season with salt.
  3. Brush the burger patties with olive oil and cook on a grill or grill pan over moderately high heat until cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side.
  4. Spread the peanut sauce on the rolls. Top with burgers and lettuce to serve.
