Author Notes: This recipe was inspired by my abundance of herbs, and my love of any type of burger. I hope you like it. - DailyMealsDailyMeals

Food52 Review: The chicken burgers were excellent -- full of flavor and moist as could be. I did throw in a small handful of bread crumbs, but I'm not sure they were needed. The aioli had lots of bright flavors from the lemon, vinegar and mustard. I think there might be other ways to add heat rather than the cayenne, ways that would also add more flavor. Bravo to DailyMeals for a burger done well. - annaleaannalea

Makes approx 5

Chicken Burger

  • 500 grams ground organic chicken
  • 1 clove garlic, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 5 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 farm fresh egg
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • butter lettuce
  • brioche buns, toasted
  • 5 slices gruyere cheese

Spice Aioli

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 3/4 cups light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  1. Mix the first 8 ingredients together and form burgers(it will be pretty moist, but there is nothing worse than dry chicken). If the mix is too wet add some breadcrumbs. Gently cook in a skillet for about 5 minutes on each side.
  2. While the burgers cook, make your aioli. Add the egg yolks and half the lemon juice and cider vinegar into blender or bowl. Add a few drops of oil and blend or whisk until you create an emulsion. Add garlic, remaining lemon and vinegar and start to drizzle in oil very slowly.
  3. Once you have a nice mayo like consistency, add the mustard, cayenne, and salt.
  4. Add cheese to your burgers and cover for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese. At the same time, toast the buns in the oven.
  5. Slather your aioli onto buns, add lettuce and then your burger. Enjoy!
