Chicken Teriyaki Burgers

  • 1 lb. 98% ground chicken or 99% ground turkey

  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce

  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Sesame Slaw

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions (optional)


  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil for frying

  • 4 brioche buns

  • 1/4 cup yum yum sauce (or mayo, sriracha, chili crisp, whatever sauce you like)

  1. Make the Sesame Slaw: Toss the slaw ingredients together. Taste and adjust.

  2. Make the Burgers: Combine chicken, teriyaki sauce, panko, salt, and garlic powder in a large bowl. Mix with your (clean) hands until well-combined. Form into 4 large patties.

  3. Fry the Burgers: Heat a bit of avocado oil over medium heat. Add the burgers to the hot pan and cook for 3-5 minutes until golden and mostly cooked through; flip to finish for another 2-3 minutes. Cook until no longer pink in the middle, or a meat thermometer registers at least 165 degrees Farenheit.

  4. Toast Buns: Wipe out the skillet if there are burned bits left in the pan. Pop your buns into the skillet for just a second, cut side down over medium low heat, to get them lightly toasted.

  5. Assemble Burgers: Spread top and bottom buns with yum yum sauce, place a burger, and top with the sesame slaw. Press burgers together, slice into it, and enjoy your life. I love these so much.
