Asian Chicken Burger with Sriracha Mayo

Labor Day is fast approaching and summer is almost in the rear view so we’re grilling most evenings as the days shorten. We try to stay away from ground beef (unless it’s a trip to Apple Pan) and with this whole ground turkey scare we’ve turned to ground chicken. And guess what? My family actually prefers ground chicken over the ground turkey; it holds more moisture and takes on the flavors of the hoisin, ginger, and soy sauce better than the turkey. When this burger recipe is combined with the Sriracha Mayo (which isn’t nearly as spicy as you might think) it transforms into a most unique but satisfying alternative to the typical summer burger.

Asian Chicken Burger with Sriracha Mayo Recipe

1 lb ground chicken

2 garlic cloves minced

1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

1 egg white

2 green onions

1 tablespoon soy sauce

¼ cup hoisin sauce

¼ cup milk

½ cup panko breadcrumbs

fresh ground black pepper

Sriracha Mayo Recipe

1/4 cup light mayo

1 tablespoon sriracha


Whole wheat burger buns

Sautéed red onions



Place the ground chicken in a glass bowl and toss in the garlic, ginger, egg white, green onions, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and milk. Stir to combine. Add the panko breadcrumbs and gently fold into the mixture until incorporated. The burger meat will be a bit mushy, which is a good thing! Form the patties, I always make some the size of the buns and then some mini burgers for the kids. Preheat grill to medium high, about 400 degrees F. Oil the grates and put the burgers on. Cook for 8 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Mix the mayo with Sriracha and toast your buns on the grill. I cut down the buns into mini size for the kids burgers. Spread the mayo sauce on the adults, unless your kid like it hot and add any other condiment of choice. My kids like ketchup, of course, and we all like lettuce tomato and sautéed onions. Makes about 4 regular patties and 4 mini patties.

* we never have leftovers because the kids eat all the mini’s and my hubby sneaks out for a late night snack and gobbles up the rest!
