Here’s a recipe for Curried Chicken Burgers

Curried Chicken Burger

Burger Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 Tablesoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 reaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  • Salt-to taste
  • Oil or cooking spray

Mix together the burger ingredients and form into patties.
Preheat your grill or griddle to medium heat.
Lightly oil the grill grate and grill the burgers about 5-6 minutes on each side until fully cooked.
Since I did this indoors in January, I seared the burgers and finished them off in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Lightly grill the buns if you desire.
Assemble the burger. I added lettuce and tomato then placed the burger!

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
