  1. Put the onion, chicken, garlic, chiles, and cilantro in a food processor. Season with sea salt and pepper, and pulse until combined-be careful not to turn it into a paste. Pour the mixture out into a bowl, and mix in the flour and egg.
  2. Using your hands, roll 1/4 of the mixture into a ball, then flatten into a burger. Repeat until all the mixture has been used. Chill for 30 minutes, or until firm.
  3. Heat the barbecue or charcoal grill until hot. Grill the burgers over medium heat for 8-10 minutes on each side, until golden and cooked through. Serve with lemon mayonnaise and fresh tomato slices.
