Chicken Curry Burger

This burger started off as an experiment for healthier meals. Originally I used turkey mince, because it contains more protein. I still do it sometimes, but I reckon chicken makes the burger just that bit juicier! With this recipe I basically combined my favorite meat with one of my favorite curries; yellow curry. And to finish the whole thing off: Tzatziki. In my opnion, the freshness of the Tzatziki really compliments the tangyness of the patty and balances out the yellow curry paste as it has a bit of a bite to it.
This burger recipe has been my favorite for a couple of years now, so I‘m super excited to share it with you!

How spicy on the scale of spicyness?

Quite a hard judgement for someone that is used to ‘burning my butt off‘ kind of spicyness, but I‘m gonna give it a go ayways. To be on the safe side, I will rate this burger 2 chillies on a scale of 4 chillies. Does that make sense?😂 If you are only able to handle 1 chilli, you might want to use just 1 or 1/2 a tablespoon of yellow curry paste and sprinkle some Keen‘s curry in the mix to enhance the curry flavour.

Let‘s get to the recipe!

For 5 burgers we ‘re going to need:

  • 500 chicken mince
  • 1/2 red onions, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp yellow curry paste
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce 
  • 2 tbs breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • ½ avocado, in slices
  • herb or garlic butter
  • 5 brioche buns

The Tzatztiki sauce:

If you’re in a hurry, you could buy a Tzatziki sauce in the store. But! If you are in a mood to cook, I would definitely try out this recipe!

You will need:

  • 400 ml Greek yogurt
  • ½ cucumber grated
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp dill
  • 1 tbsp mint
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • lemon zest from one lemon

Let me start by apologizing for making so little ‘in between‘ photo‘s while making this recipe. This is literally how excited I got to make and EAT them and I completely forgot about it😅


Nonetheless I will do my best to talk you through it! I usually start with the Tzatziki, so I can put it back in the fridge to keep it nice and cold.
Grate the cucumber, and lay it on some kitchen paper to absorb all the moist. Chop the dill and mint finely and mix in a bowl with all the other ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with some extra virgin olive oil.

The Burgers

Mix all the ingredients for the burgers (except for the avocado and the buns) in a bowl and form the patties. Dependant on how thick you make yours, bake them in a pan for about 5 minutes on medium high heat, flipping regularly. At this stage, the kids always come downstairs to check on what we’re eating tonight, because the house will be filled with those beautiful curry aromas😍

While the burgers are in the pan, spread some herb or garlic butter on the inside of the buns. Once I’m finished with the patties, I use the juices from the patties to bake the bread in. It will soak up all it’s deliciousness and will make it nice and crunchy! This should only take one minute.

Time to layer up!

For the photo, I serve the Tzatziki on the side, to show you the toppings I‘ve used, but I intentionally didn‘t add the toppings to the list of ingredients, so you can add all of your own favorites! The other day, I decided to check out a small vegetable store and I found this kale blend that looked super cute, so I decided to give it a try and O.M.G. it‘s amazing. It‘s crunchy, a bit earthy and let‘s be honest… The colors are kinda cool! Whoever doesn‘t eat with their eyes are lying😂

Anyway, I‘ve layered my burger with alfalfa sprouts, snow pea sprouts and the kale blend and when I eat it, I throw a big dollop of Tzatziki on it🤤

Bon Appetit!
