Spiced Chicken Burgers with Peanut Sauce

I found this recipe in a Parenting magazine at the Pediatrician's office today. I was there because the kids are sick and this meal looks quick easy and yummy. Hopefully H2 will like it as she's the most delicate palate in the house - but she special requests peanut butter and peanut butter sandwiches everyday, so hopefully the sauce wins her over!

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 2 tsp. red curry powder
  • 1 tbsp. fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 dozen mini-pita rounds
  • 1 cucumber

  1. Preheat broiler. Combine ground chicken, red curry powder, fresh ginger, and salt, mixing well. Form into 12 balls and flatten to 1/3-inch-thick patties. Broil 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through and lightly browned.
  2. Combine peanut butter, honey, lime juice, soy sauce, and 2 tablespoons water in a glass bowl; microwave on high for 30 seconds, then whisk until smooth. Split a dozen mini-pita rounds. Place chicken patties inside pita rounds, and top with a dollop of peanut sauce and 2 cucumber slices.
