Thai Chicken Burgers With Bacon And Curried Apple Mayonnnaise

Posted 2015-04-01 by finyfollow

Chicken burgers are always a good standby especially if you keep minced chicken in the freezer as I always do.

I love hamburgers however do not like the bought ones with a lot of salt, so I decided to try something different.

Here I have teamed a Thai chicken burger with Australian crispy bacon, and added a curried apple mayonnaise. This makes the burger rather "out of the ordinary" chicken burgers.

The Thai flavours of the actual burger and the apple mayo are an excellent combination, and although it is a bit more work, it is well worth the extra effort.

I also added carrots sliced into ribbons instead of greens, however greens or snow pea sprouts would also work well.

There are enough burgers over to have them again another night, (I will have them with chips or mashed potatoes next time) or freeze some of them.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes (plus 30 minutes in the fridge)
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

2 bread rolls
1 carrot cut into ribbons with a peeler
2 rashers [link short cut bacon]
50 g snow pea sprouts (optional)

For the burger:
500 g [link chicken mince]
¾ cups [link bread crumbs]
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 spring onions, chopped
2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
1 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce
2 tbsp fish sauce
1/3 cup [link sweet chilli sauce]
1/3 cup [link cottage cheese]
½ cup coriander leaves, roughly chopped

For the mayonnaise
1 small apple, diced into small pieces
1/3 cup [link mayonnaise]
1 tsp mild curry paste
Bit of water, if needed

  • Put the chicken mince in a large bowl and add the red curry paste, coriander, egg, soy sauce, spring onions, cottage cheese, fish sauce, breadcrumbs and 1 tbsp only of the sweet chili sauce.

  • Mix well and form into large patties using about half a cup for each. Cover, and put in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, put the bacon in a large frypan and cook for about 4 minutes, or to your liking.

  • Mix the mayonnaise (always use a good egg mayonnaise), the chopped apple and the curry. If it is too thick, add a bit of water.

  • To cook the burgers, either do this on a barbecue, which gives them a nice smokey flavour, or in a large frypan with a bit of oil. If using the barbecue, spray the burgers with oil first. Cook for about 10 minutes, turning, or until cooked through.

  • Grill the rolls for a few minutes, or place them on the barbecue. Spread with the mayonnaise on one side only.
  • I always take some of the inside of the bread out so that more can fit in the burger

  • Spread the rest of the sweet chilli sauce on the other side of the bun, add the ribbon carrots and snow pea sprouts (if using), then top with the bacon and lastly the Thai chicken burger.

  • Put the top on the burger and attempt to eat! It is quite large, but very tasty and messy to eat!
