  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Grill red pepper, jalapeno and onion for 5 minutes. Cool then peel the skin off the red pepper. Finely chop red pepper and onion. Save the jalapeno for the Aioli.
  3. In a food processor, combine jalapeno and Aioli ingredients. Blend until almost smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together red pepper, onion, curry powder, garlic, garam masala, green onions, ketchup, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Add ground chicken and stir until well mixed.
  5. Shape into 4 patties, ½ inch thick. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (or overnight).
  6. Brush sweet potato slices with oil or butter and wrap in foil. Grill until fork tender.
  7. Grill burgers till meat thermometer reads 175F. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.
  8. Drizzle some of the Lime Mint Aioli on 4 plates. Arrange a sweet potato slice on each plate and top each with a burger and a spoonful of mango chutney. Serve with remaining Aioli.

Tip: These burgers are also good served on naan bread or roti, instead of the sweet potato slices.
