How to do it, step by step
Step 1: To make the satay sauce, place coconut milk, peanut butter, sugar, garlic, sweet chilli, ginger and soy in a saucepan over low heat.
Step 2: Stir for 1 minute, or until the peanut butter melts. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5-6 minutes. Stir until thickened.
Step 3: Add in lime juice, stir and set aside to cool.
Step 4: Place minced chicken, onion, crumbs, chopped coriander and 1/2 cup of the satay sauce in a bowl and mix well.
Step 5: Form into 4 patties and set aside for 15 minutes. Heat oil in a frypan over medium-low heat and cook patties for 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked through.
Step 6: Proceed to place patties, tomatoes, onions, coriander, chillis and satay sauce in between the toasted buns to form a burger.
