Nutty Thai Chicken Burgers With Peanut Butter Recipe

I was inspired to make these Thai chicken burgers by trying to come up with an at-home spin on one of my favourite Thai dishes, chicken satay. I used white meat chicken, and the burgers stayed very moist with the satay sauce mixed in but if you prefer the flavour of dark meat, go for it.

Pre-ground chicken can be a little challenging, but most stores with a butcher counter will grind chicken by request. If all else fails, these Thai chicken burgers are delicious with turkey as well. This can be served with more peanut sauce, or a fresh salad as a side dish.

These Thai chicken burgers are smeared with peanut butter. This is a very satisfying meal to have when craving something salty and savoury.

  • ½ cup peanut butter unsalted
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce low-sodium
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger grated
  • 1 ⅓ pound ground chicken
  • 1 medium carrot
  • ½ medium cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • teaspoon salt
  • 4 medium hamburger buns


  • Preheat your grill to medium heat.
  • Whisk peanut butter, hot sauce, soy sauce and ginger together. Remove ⅓ of the mixture and set aside. Gently fold ground chicken into the remaining ⅔ of the peanut sauce.
  • Form chicken mixture into 4 burger patties and grill until cooked through thoroughly, about 6 to 7 minutes per side.
  • While the burgers are cooking, use a vegetable peeler to make long, thin strips out of the carrot and cucumber. Place in a small mixing bowl and add minced cilantro, lime juice and salt, then mix to combine.
  • Once the burgers are cooked, set them on a plate to rest for 5 minutes. Assemble burgers by spreading peanut sauce on one side of each bun, adding a chicken patty, and topping each one with the carrot and cucumber salad.
