This recipe is good enough for company, or just to enjoy with your family, or make ahead and freeze the patties for later, if it’s just you!

Gochujang Apricot Sauce

The sauce is fantastic: Gochujang Apricot Sauce, and it’s definitely worth the time involved to sauté the mushrooms.

Sometimes the extra steps are what makes burgers so good. Like adding a runny egg, for instance. YUM!

How to make chicken burgers

  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ground chicken, spices, sesame seeds, green onions, soy sauce, lime, eggs, and almond flour and mix thoroughly.
  2. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop a ball into your hands (TIP: coat hands with a little olive oil to prevent sticking). Flatten ball into about a 1 1/2 inch thick patty, and place on a nonstick baking sheet.
  3. Bake in oven for 30 minutes, flipping burgers about midway through. You can also broil the burgers to caramelize the top.

So when I say that eating together with friends makes me “happy,” it really does do something for my soul. Sometimes the word “happy” can be a buzz word. But a meal with loved ones (or even new friends) can be exactly what we need.

BE HAPPY FRIENDS … but choose happiness in the right way, check your attitude!
