Spicy chicken burgers

Having tried bean burgers and veggie burgers at home, I have always been skeptical about trying chicken burgers. I happened to have minced chicken at home and googled for some burger recipes. I found umpteen number of recipes and was quiet confused with what to make. Using all the inputs from google I settled upon this recipe of my own, which was indeed really good. We had it for dinner with some homemade baked french fries and some cherry pepsi!



Ingredients

Ground chicken - 1 pound

Instant oats - 2 tablespoons (can be replaced by breadcrumbs)

Egg - 1

Seasoning:

Sesame oil - 1 teaspoon

Soy sauce - 2 teaspoons

Vinegar - 1 teaspoon
Garlic powder - 1 teaspoon
Freshly ground black pepper- 1 teaspoon
Chilli flakes - 1 teaspoon (can be replaced with chilli powder or chilli sauce)
Dried oregano - 1/2 teaspoon (optional-or can be replaced by any herbs)
Sugar - 1 teaspoon

Directions

Place all the seasoning in a bowl and mix it well with a fork. Powder the instant oats.

In another bowl, take the minced chicken and add the egg. Beat well so that it is well incorporated with the chicken. Add the seasoning and mix again. Finally add the powdered oats and mix well.

The egg helps in holding all the ingredients together and the oats gives a nice crust to the burger.

Make burger size patties and shape them in your palms.

Heat a shallow pan and drizzle some oil. Once it is heated, 3 to 4 patties at a time. Cook on medium heat for about 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the patties over carefully and allow to cook on the other side for about 4 minutes.

Check if it has cooked through completely.

Serve over burger buns with toppings of your choice.

I made mine with some low-fat mayonnaise, mint chutney, cheese, lettuce, onions and tomatoes. Enjoy!
