chicken curry burgers w/ tzatziki

mini curry chicken burgers

I'm going to let the pictures speak for me. Not that I don't have tons to say, I always do, but these chicken burgers were soooooo good. A pinch of this, a pinch of that, and then a pinch or two of curry thrown in and we have a delish burger. Not to mention the tzatziki sauce is one of my all-time favorites to use as a dip, a sandwich spread and on my hummus roll ups. Oh yes, my hummus roll ups have warm falafel balls , some hummus and then smother it in tzatziki. Delish.
This great recipe is inspired by my friend Esi over at Dishing Up Delights, who just made a wonderful batch of Greek Burgers, and from seeing that post I had to have something similiar. So here is my creation of a curry burger...hope you like it or are inspired to create something similiar. And if you can, grill these burgers for the ultimate taste, and serve on warmed Naan bread. ***And for you vegans out there, I've made this before using those Boca burgers and it was fabulous and tasty!

mini curry chicken burgers

print recipe

1 lb. ground chicken breast
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1 TB fresh ginger, minced
1 TB fresh lemon juice
2 ts paprika
1 ts ground cumin
1 ts curry powder
¼ ts cayenne pepper
A dash of salt & pepper

1 small cucumber, sliced thin
Red onions, sliced thin
Tomatoes, thinly sliced (optional)
Naan bread, warmed
Taziki sauce

In a bowl, gently combine the first 9 ingredients.
Form into mini burgers or meatballs and set aside/refrigerate for 20 minutes or longer to combine flavors.
Grill or fry the patties until cooked through. Remember chicken burgers cook a lot faster than beef. Don't forget to warm your Naan bread before serving!
Place cucumber, onions, tomatoes on warmed Naan bread, followed by the patties. Drizzle, no, smother with the tzatziki sauce.
Made about 7 mini burgers.

Tzatziki Sauce

16 oz. Greek style yogurt*
1 cucumber, washed and peeled
3 - 4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 to 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
1/2 tsp salt
A pinch or two of cayenne pepper (optional, but wonderful)

*Greek style yogurt is much thicker and richer than normal yogurt. If you can’t get a hold of it you can make your own. Place some plain yogurt in a cheesecloth, tie up the edges and hang it over a bowl or place the cheesecloth in a strainer over a bowl in the fridge for a few hours.
Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with a small spoon. Then coarsely grate the cucumber.
Gather the grated cucumber in a cheesecloth or paper towel and squeeze out the excess water, otherwise the tzatziki will be too runny.
Mix the grated cucumber with everything else.

  11. Love this, the pita bread, the spices, the east/west fusion.

    For Tzatziki, simply plop in a fine metal sieve (pot under), place in fridge over night...it should be real thick.

  14. Looks like curry is the thing to do these days! I just made veggie burgers the other day, but I would love to experiment with some of these spices you suggest. I'll have to get to work, and I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for sharing!

  34. Seriously, I'm in love with this post! Tzatziki is my most favorite condiment ever, and the whole pita thing works for me. Great tip about the Boca burgers, too. Oh man, now my dinner holds no appeal ... I want this! YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh Dawn, I so did not need to see this yummy goodness tonight! I've had the week from, well you know where - with deadlines up the wazoo and many late nights working instead of blogging :(

    The hubby headed north to Vermont for the weekend to get some more firewood because my nightly fire is the only thing keeping me sane at this point.

    So, exhausted and sans the man, I made myself an uninspired omelet (no time for grocery shopping this week) for dinner and got the boy child Wendy's. What kind of foodie lets her kid eat that crap?

    Glad you're eating so well - and I'm definitely trying this one!

    ReplyDelete

    I would be VERY happy eating this.

  45. Sooooooo fabulous!!! I just finished making and eating these. We LOVED it! Would not change a thing.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've tweaked the recipe just a touch to my own taste and I tend to alternate between using chicken and pork but I have made these countless times and they have never failed to be a hit. I have always meant to come back to this site to thank you for posting this and in the process, making me look good at BBQs. I link every person who has ever asked for the recipe.
