1 lb. ground chicken

1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons gochujang sauce (I use this one)

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

avocado oil or olive oil for frying

6 slices bacon, cut into small pieces

1 1/2 cups kimchi, cut into small shreddy pieces (my personal preference for texture!)

2 tablespoons brown sugar


Cheese (optional – I use gouda cheese)

Cilantro or greens


Cucumber slices


Kimchi Bacon Jam:Â

In a large skillet over medium heat, add the bacon pieces. Fry until golden and crispy and fat has rendered. Drain off some of the oil (optional) and add the kimchi and brown sugar to the pan. Sauté for 3-5 minutes until caramelized and bubbly.

Chicken Burgers

Mix the chicken, panko, gochujang, garlic powder, and salt until well-combined. Form into 4-5 burger patties.

Make the Burgers:Â

Transfer burgers to a large skillet. Add a swish of avocado oil and pan-fry until golden on the exterior and 160 degrees on the interior.

Assemble the Burgers

Toast your buns on the skillet; serve burgers on toasted buns with a layer of kimchi bacon jam, greens of choice, and mayo. So, s0 good.
