Red Curry Chicken Burgers with Grilled Pineapple

Red Curry Chicken Burgers with Grilled Pineapple, Red Onion & Lime Mayo

Well, it’s August, and I have one major regret. I’ve grilled embarrassingly few burgers this summer. Like, this might only be my second one (and first I’ve blogged about). So, when the people at WORLDFOODS Fusion of Flavours asked if I wanted to sample some of their products, I had a feeling I would be making a burger.

World Foods offers 51 types of Asian dipping sauces, pastes, noodle sauces, stir-fry, cooking sauces, marinades, chutneys and salad dressings. As an added bonus, they are gluten free, trans fat free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. When they asked me to choose four that I wanted to try (and give away to some of my readers!), I had a heck of a time choosing, but finally settled on Thai “Pad Thai” Noodle Sauce, Indonesian Fried Rice Paste, Thai Green Curry Cooking Sauce and Thai Red Curry Paste.

Upon arrival, I pinky-finger-sampled and enjoyed all of the products, and decided to use the red chile-infused spicy Thai Red Curry Paste to make a (long overdue!) summer burger. I stirred the curry into some ground chicken and threw the patties onto the grill. At the same time, I grilled some thick slices of juicy pineapple, as well as some pleasantly pungent red onions. Curry chicken burgers wouldn’t be complete without a special sauce, so I jazzed up some mayonnaise with lime juice and zest, which added a tangy creaminess to the sandwiches.

Apparently, I already had Christmas on the brain, because I didn’t stop at just RED curry. I shredded up some fresh veggies (carrots, yellow bell pepper and zucchini), and stirred in a few spoonfuls of creamy coconut-infused Thai GREEN Curry Cooking Sauce for a three-minute slaw to serve alongside the burgers. Green and Red Curry? It’s like Santa brought me this dinner….ho ho ho!

    These look great Lori! I went on a grilling spree in May, but then fell off the wagon. I’m definitely hoping to get back out there a few more times this summer!

    Wonderful recipe and giveaway, Lori! Chicken and curry go together like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers! (A famous dancing team from 1930s movies.)
