Author: Samantha Ferraro


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1 in piece of ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 3 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp gram masala
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Yogurt Sauce

  • 1/2 c Greek yogurt
  • Small bunch fresh mint chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 lemon juiced


  • In a large bowl, mix together the ground chicken, all the spices, garlic, lemon juice, ginger and green onions. Use your hands to score into 4 patties and and form into burgers.
  • Heat a skillet or grill (I drizzle oil on the skillet) and cook burgers on each side until cooked through, about 3-4 min each side.
  • To make the yogurt sauce, mix all ingredients together in a bowl. (Sometimes I had finely chopped cucumber as well).
  • To assemble the burgers: Place burger on pita bread and top with tomato slice, fresh mint pr cilantro or parsley and dollop of yogurt sauce.
