1 red onion

1 jalapeno

4 cloves garlic

3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon crushed red pepper

2 teaspoons yellow curry powder

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons ground black pepper

1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Begin by peeling your red onion. Remove the skin and cut off the remaining root. Chop up your red onion into small pieces and set aside. Take your jalapeno and remove the stem with a knife and slice in half. If you like spicy, keep all the seeds, if not, then now's the time to remove them as well as the veins. Place aside. Take your garlic cloves, peel them and put aside. 
  2. Now take your chicken thighs. After washing the chicken and removing any unwanted fat, you're now ready to grind the meat, using a meat grinder, grinder attachment or food processor. Place a mixing bowl underneath the grinder to catch the ground meat. While placing the thighs into the grinder, stagger in your jalapeno and garlic cloves so they mix in with the ground chicken thigh. Or if you're using a food processor, just place all the items into the processor and pulse until the ingredients are incorporated and place into a mixing bowl. 
  3. Add the honey, crushed red pepper, curry powder, salt and black pepper and mix until fully incorporated. Preheat a nonstick skillet on medium heat with the veggie oil. While the skillet is heating, patty your burgers into 6-ounce patties, and then place in the skillet. Cook each burger 6 to 8 minutes on each side, making sure that each burger is fully cooked and reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Now you're ready to dress it up however you like. On a bun, atop a salad or broken up to make chicken salad. Enjoy!
