CARIBBEAN CHICKEN MANGO BURGERS

I have lived in the Midwest and North most of my life and the winters can be REALLY long! A few years ago my husband and I went on a Caribbean cruise and reminiscing about our trip keeps me going sometimes! We loved visiting all the different islands and exploring each one of them. When we returned, I loved combining our favorite flavors all into one burger that we can enjoy year-round. It’s like being back on the islands!

Instructions 

Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.

Prepare sauce by placing mayonnaise, yogurt, 2 tablespoons coconut milk, 1 tablespoon orange juice, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 teaspoon orange zest, 1 teaspoon lime zest, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in small bowl and whisk until combined. Cover and set aside or place in refrigerator until ready to assemble burgers.

In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, 1/3 cup lime juice, honey, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper until well combined. Drizzle over cabbage, 1 1/2 cup mango, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeno in large bowl and stir until well combined. Cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes or place in refrigerator until ready to assemble burgers.

In a large bowl, gently mix chicken, Caribbean seasoning, 2 teaspoons orange zest, 2 teaspoons lime zest, garlic, wine, 1 tablespoon orange juice, and 1 tablespoon lime juice together. Form into 6 patties then gently cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
