Tandoori Chicken Burgers

We really enjoyed this twist on the classic burger. I loved the Indian spices with the cool yogurt and cucumber and stuffed in a pita made it the perfect sandwich! I served these with homemade potato chips which I had never made before. Um, so.good. and highly addictive!


Ingredients:
Burgers
1 pound ground chicken
4 scallions, minced
3 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced or grated
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
2 whole-wheat pitas, cut in half crosswise
1 cucumber, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced on the diagonal
1/2 cup fresh cilantro sprigs

Yogurt Sauce
1/2 cup lowfat Greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:
In a medium bowl, combine chicken, scallions, ginger, lemon juice, paprika, cumin, cardamom, cayenne, salt and pepper. Set aside for flavors to meld, 10-30 minutes.

Using wet hands, form chicken mixture into 4 patties. Place patties on a plate and stick them in the freezer while you prepare the grill.

When ready to grill, remove patties from freezer, season with additional salt and pepper and grill until opaque throughout, 4-5 minutes per side.

While burgers are grilling, prepare yogurt sauce. Whisk together yogurt, cumin, salt and pepper. Place in fridge until ready to serve.

Warm the pitas in a microwave or toast on the grill. Place one patty into each of the pita pockets, top with cucumber, cilantro, and yogurt sauce.

Makes 4 servings.
