There's just something about them that make people smile. But burgers don't just have to be a slab of meat on a bun. When I make mine, I like to grab some spices from the spice drawer and have the kids cut a handful of fresh herbs from our garden in order to come up with a mixture that will really jazz things up.
By incorporating some curry, garlic powder, fresh parsley and mint into the ground chicken and sauce, you give the ordinary burger a huge burst of unforgettable flavors. The best part is that you don't need to wait for your summertime grill to enjoy these burgers. They're beyond easy to make in a sauté pan any time of year.
Accompaniments: Burger Buns, Pita Pockets, Tomatoes, Lettuce
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a sauté pan over medium heat and sauté onions for 4 minutes until tender and set aside to cool.
In a mixing bowl, combine the sautéed onions, ground chicken, salt, parsley, garlic and curry powder. Evenly divide mixture and shape into flour patties.
In a separate bowl, mix the yogurt, mint, cucumber and salt to make the sauce.
Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a pan and cook patties for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Place burgers on buns and top with yogurt sauce and desired accompaniments.
