Servings 4


  • frying pan
  • mixing bowl


  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 4 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2-1 tablespoon HeathGlen Tajin style chile spice or other chile powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp grapeseed oil for frying
  • Hot sauce or other sauces to serve


  • In a large bowl, mix together thoroughly the first seven ingredients.
  • Heat oil in large skillet over high heat until shimmering. While the oil is heating, form the chicken mixture into patties (they will be somewhat loose and more mushy than beef hamburger patties). Ease the patties into the hot oil with a spatula so they do not break apart, and turn the heat to medium-high. Fry the patties for about 3-4 minutes and then flip with a spatula. Fry on the flipped side for 4-6 minutes or until golden brown and crispy and done on inside (may have to cover skillet for last couple of minutes to speed cooking on the inside.
  • Remove to drain on paper towels. Serve with sauces to dip or spread on top of the patties.
