Dukan Thai Style Chicken Burgers (it's Paleo-ish too!)

We loved this recipe!

I asked the male half of this couple what kind of burger he wanted the other weekend and he said "chicken!" after a quick search on the internet, we came across Gwyneth Paltrow's recipe for her Thai Style Chicken Burgers.  We made a few changes and it became an easy, tasty Dukan/Paleo-ish recipe.

We usually make turkey burgers in our house but the male half after all these years finally told me he doesn't care for ground turkey because it's mushy to him.  So, we have one more ground turkey recipe coming up since we had one package of ground turkey left in the freezer...from now on it'll be chicken burgers for us.

We are still using our old bottle of fish sauce, so we don't have the Paleo-friendly brand, Red Boat which is why we are calling this a Paleo-ish recipe.

Makes 4 burgers
Prep time: approx. 15 minutes
Cook time: approx. 13-15 minutes

1 lb. ground chicken (dark meat, but if you're in the Cruise phase, you can try ground chicken breasts)
2 garlic cloves, very finely minced
1/2 c. cilantro, finely chopped
2 shallots, very finely minced
1 tsp. very finely minced red chili
2 tsh. fish sauce
1/2 t. pure sea salt
2 tsp. black pepper

Mix ground chicken with garlic, cilantro, shallots, red chili, fish sauce, salt and pepper.  Form 4 burgers.  Heat a grill pan over medium heat.  If you're on the Dukan Diet, spray your pan lightly with non-stick spray...if you're on the Paleo Diet, wipe some oil on your pan (we used Extra Virgin Olive Oil).  Grill for 8 minutes on the first side and about 5 minutes or until cooked on the second side.

We ate our burgers with broccoli steamed with adobo seasoning.

Enjoy...we sure did!
