Ingredients

  • 1 1⁄2 tbsp olive oil mayonnaise
  • 1⁄2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1⁄4 tsp peeled and minced ginger, divided
  • 1 1⁄4 tsp seeded and minced jalapeño chile pepper, divided
  • 1 1⁄4 tsp fresh lime juice, divided
  • 16 oz lean ground chicken
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3 tbsp diced scallions (white parts only)
  • 1⁄2 tsp chipotle chile powder
  • 4 whole-grain hamburger buns, toasted

Salad

  • 1 garden cucumber, peeled, halved and sliced
  • 1 jalapeño chile pepper, halved, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves, divided
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp coarse sea salt

Preparation

  1. Prepare aioli: In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, 1⁄2 tsp oil and 1⁄4 tsp each ginger, jalapeño and lime juice. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
  2. Prepare salad: In a medium bowl, combine all salad ingredients. Cover and refrigerate. (TIP:If making salad in advance, wait to add cilantro just before serving.)
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix chicken, 1⁄4 cup cilantro, scallions, chile powder and remaining 1 tsp each ginger, jalapeño and lime juice. Form into 4 4-oz burgers and use your thumb to make a slight indent in center of each. Heat a grill on medium and add patties to grill. Cook, turning once, for 5 to 7 minutes per side, until no longer pink inside.
  4. Divide patties among buns and top each with 1 tsp aioli and 2 tbsp salad; serve remaining salad on the side.
