Ingredients

Rainbow Sesame Slaw

Sriracha Lime Mayo

Burger Patties

Instructions

Rainbow Sesame Slaw

  1. Combine the jicama, bell peppers, snow peas, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, sesame seeds, soy sauce and sugar in a medium mixing bowl, tossing to combine. Set aside.

Sriracha Lime Mayo

  1. Combine the mayonnaise, Sriracha, lime zest and juice in a small bowl. Set aside.

Burger Patties

  1. Combine the chicken, scallions, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, lemongrass and garlic, gently mixing to incorporate. Divide the mixture into 4-6 (6-8oz) patties, place on a cookie sheet cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Chilling the burgers, prior to grilling will help bind the lean ground chicken.
  2. Heat an oiled grill or grill pan over medium-high heat, and brush with the vegetable oil. Place the patties on the grill and cook, turning once until done, 6 to 8 minutes per side. During the last few minutes of cooking, baste each burger with 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce and lightly grill the buns. Oiling the grill surface will help prevent the burgers from sticking.
  3. To assemble, spread about 1 tablespoon of the Sriracha lime mayo on each bun bottom and top.
  4. Place the patties on the bun bottoms, top with about 1/3 cup of the slaw and a few cilantro leaves, add the bun top and enjoy!
  5. These burgers are great served with sweet potato fries or sweet potato chips.
