1. Spicy Peanut Chicken Burgers

Prep: 20 minutes | Cook: 8‐10 minutes | Yield: 4 servings

The spiciness in this juicy chicken burger comes from the Thai Chile paste and a

sweet, creamy sauce balances the flavors nicely. Make your own ground chicken by

grinding lean chicken breasts in the food processor.


  • 2 tbsps all‐natural peanut butter
  • 2 tsps low‐sodium soy sauce (or gluten free Tamari)
  • 1 1⁄2 tsps dark sesame oil
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth.


  • 1⁄2 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1 tbsp chile paste with garlic
  • 2 tsps grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 tsps low‐sodium soy sauce (or gluten free Tamari)
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt
  • 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast, chopped
  • Cooking Spray


  • Ezekiel Buns, Gluten free buns, or lettuce cups
  • Fresh zesty sprouts

1. Prepare the grill.

2. Place green onion and the next 5 ingredients in a food processor; process until coarsely ground.

3. Divide into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1⁄2 inch thick patty.

4. Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray

5. Grill 4 minutes per side or until done. Remove from grill and cover with foil to allow juices to redistribute.

6. Option to toast your bun — then spread 1 tbsp of sauce and 1⁄4 cup of sprouts over one side. Add the burger and top with other half of bun.
