Chicken Burgers with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Got back to cookin' for my family this weekend, after so much travel this summer. Went a little bit left of my usual center this time, with a recipe I found from F&W mag. Actually made this once before @ my sister's house, and liked it so much that I wanted a redux in my home kitchen. If you like Thai-Indian-inspired flavors, here's a good twist on a summertime burger for you... and it only takes about 30 minutes...
  • In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tbsp. vegetable oil. Add 2 tbsp. chopped red onion & 1 tsp. chile powder; stir until onions are soft (a few minutes).
  • Add 1/4 c coconut milk; bring to boil.
  • Take off heat; whisk in 2 tbsp. each smooth peanut butter, hot water, chopped salted peanuts.
  • Mix 1 1/2 lbs. ground chicken, 1 tsp. each chile powder, garam masala, salt, 1 tbsp. vegetable oil, 1/4 c chopped red onion.
  • With lightly moist hands, form into 4 large patties.
  • Grill/pan fry chicken patties approx. 8-10 minutes, until done all the way through.
  • Spread the peanut mixture on buns; serve chicken patties on the buns. Enjoy!!

These burgers are great with a dark beer or white wine. Try 'em both, what the hell..!
