Sweet teriyaki glaze puts an Asian spin on juicy chicken burgers

Who doesn’t love a juicy grilled burger? I love burger night mainly because they’re an easy meal to prepare, and you can prep all the ingredients ahead of time. Plus, it’s fun to switch things up with flavorful additions.

Take these teriyaki chicken burgers. I wanted to jazz up plain burgers and give them an Asian spin, so I used ground chicken breast combined with sesame oil, onions, garlic and curry powder, then finished them off with a sweet teriyaki glaze. These are not your usual burgers.
