These tangy burgers put a Thai twist on your favorite all-American dish. If you have trouble finding ground skinless chicken breast, you can substitute ground skinless turkey breast, which is more commonly available. Both are great options that pack the protein. With ginger, scallions, lime and Sriracha, the flavors are strong, spicy, and savoury. Serve these on light hamburger buns as per the recipe, or try wrapping them up lettuce leaves for another option. Top with cucumber and onion for extra crunch, and a squeeze of lime to bring out the zesty flavours!
