This is a very satisfying lunch. The recipe is from a Chatelaine Magazine with several adaptations by me. If you are making these for kids buy the small pitas and just put one burger in each

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large bowl mix the chicken with, yogurt, fresh coriander,ginger, curry, salt, dry coriander, cumin and cayenne. Use your hand to really mix spices, yogurt and chicken together.
  3. Sprinkle with tomato, jalapeno, and onions.
  4. Mix until everything is evenly blended.
  5. If the mixture is so wet that it clings to your hands stir in some bread crumbs Form the mixture into patties approx 2 1/2" by 1/2" thick.
  6. Spray a baking sheet with veggie oil.
  7. Place patties on the baking sheet single layer and bake in 400°F oven for approx 8 minutes. Turn patties over and bake for another 8 minutes or until they are cooked. Slice the pitas in half, wrap in foil and warm in the oven during the last few minutes that the patties are baking. Place 2 patties in each pita and top with your favorites (I love chopped sweet onion, lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese and sliced olives).

I loved this burger! I used turkey because thats what I had, and didn't need to use the bread crumbs .. served it on a regular bun with lots of lettuce, tomatoes and mayo .. thanks!!

This was really good! I couldn't find fresh coriander so I used a little extra dried coriander, which might have been a little less flavorful. Next time I'm planning to add a little extra curry or some garlic. Great with tzatziki.
