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 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.
Update...John rocked this recipe! Tried it this weekend and I could not get enough. Well done!
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!
Absolutely delicious! I was in the need to find a new way make a ground chicken burger! I loved everything about the flavors! I did add a bit more sambal to the peanut butter spread! I also needed a substitute for the fish sauce...( it is not sold in my neck of the woods) so I used a splash of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce! It was delicious! Also to the slaw I added thin sliced red onion....the slaw with cilantro on top gave it a refreshing taste! We ate them before I was able to snap a pic!
Made exactly as written and it was delicious!
