Five simple pantry ingredients join forces to create a phenomenal taste with great depth. These burgers taste delicious served in lettuce wraps with a drizzle of liquid aminos, a dab of mayo, or Sriracha chili sauce, as my husband likes to smear on.

Method

  1. In a bowl, combine the chicken, onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, salt, and pepper, using your hands or wooden spoon to distribute the seasonings evenly.
  2. Heat a large sauté pan, skillet, or griddle over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil.
  3. Using a ¼-cup measuring cup, scoop the chicken into the pan, molding each into thin patties, about 3 inches wide. You should get 8 patties.
  4. Brown on one side, about 3 minutes. Flip and brown the other side, about 2 minutes. If you still have chicken left to cook, scrape any bits from the pan. Place the pan back on the heat and add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Cook the remaining patties.
