Recipe by Chef John
"I love chicken satay, that spicy meat on a stick, marinated and grilled and served with a peanut sauce. I tried to get that same effect with a chicken burger."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I make lunch for my aging father 2-3 times a week. I try something new each time to keep him interested in eating. My father isn't very verbal so I don't expect much thanks although I know deep down he appreciates my effort. With that being said, I dropped this meal off and left to do errands. Imagine my surprise when I returned to find a hand-written note from Dad telling me it was "Very good baby girl!" (yes it had an exclamation point)
I didn't change a thing and now every other Saturday is now known as "Satay Saturday" per my Dad's request. Thanks Chef John.
I used ground turkey instead of ground chicken, but I don't feel that made much difference in the finished product. I felt the flavors just weren't there. If a recipe has 19-20 ingredients, you would expect it to have more flavors than this one. I even added the extra salt and cayenne pepper! Actually, there are times when too many ingredients mask one another...I think this may have been the case with these burgers, the slaw and the peanut spread. It didn't taste anything like satay, which I love. Not planning to make this one again. Sorry Chef John. :-(
These burgers were delicious. I ate mine as lettuce wraps! They did remind me of chicken satay which I happen to love. I added red onion to my slaw, used chunky peanut butter and did add some salt. I love most of chef johns recipes and this one is a keeper!
These burgers are a delicious, healthier version of comfort food. I used 1/2 ground chicken and 1/2 ground turkey to decrease the cost. I also added an egg to bind the meat mixture. I needed a side dish, so I searched allrecipes and found Asian Cucumber and Peanut Salad (submitted by tammyn316). The two dishes paired perfectly!
These burgers were delicious. Make the peanut sauce just before serving as a chemical reaction occurs and the spread got very thick and was quite difficult to spread, but still tasted great. I didn't add any extra salt as the soy sauce was sufficient.
Made exactly as written and it was delicious!
Very well received by my family. The cucumber/carrot relish is the best part - don't skip the fish sauce! Followed the recipe except: used purchased peanut sauce, which I already had on hand, and added thinly sliced green onions and some extra chopped jalapeno and cilantro to the ground chicken (in place of the basil).
Mid-way through his first bite, my husband mumbled "10". This is a vey tasty creation! Thanks Chef John!
