Made this recipes as "sliders" as a party appetizer for NYE. I used 1lb ground turkey instead of chicken, add 4 cloves of garlic, a can of chickpeas (coarsely chopped) and extra garam masala. I put them on wheat Hawaiian sweet rolls. I had diced the red onion and put that on the bottom bun and a sliced cucumber on top of the burger (both onions and sliced cucumbers marinated in mint, pear-balsalmic vinegar, and a dash of EVOO, overnight). This made for an excellent presentation and made 21 sliders. Everyone at the party raved! Thanks for the idea! Will try again soon with ground chicken!

Just made these tonight on the grill and they turned out beautifully! I'm not a fan of cucumbers or onions, and I wasn't sure whether my two guests liked them either, so I didn't make the minted cucumbers. I tried to take the recommendation for satay sauce, but couldn't find any at the store-- so I took a gamble and just served the burgers with lettuce and some Mango & Ginger Chutney from a jar (Truly Indian brand). It turned out a hit! The chutney added a summery flair to a burger that's delicious on its own. i LOVE this recipe!!! Thanks for posting it! ^_^

I was pretty sure I'd like these, but wow, I really liked these a lot. The onion, mint and cucumber is a combination I've had before, but not quite like this, and never on a burger. The mint gives this such a wonderful and fresh flavor. Since a grill was not an option, I improvised and broiled these in my electric oven. I preheated the oven, lined a pan (with sides to catch any drippings) with foil and then put the burgers on a cooling rack on top of that. I cooked the same times as indicated in the recipe, and it was perfect (I used a meat thermometer to confirm), and they looked almost grilled (not quite the real thing, but close!). I do think I would do as others have suggested by adding a Satay sauce just to add a little something on top and maybe even a little more of the spices, but even as is, these were really, really wonderful. Thanks for sharing an excellent and simple recipe!

These were the most flavorful, delicious burgers ever! My fiance, my son, and I loved them! I took the suggestion of Fairy Nuff and used Satay sauce on the burgers and it complimented them terrifically! Thanks for an awesome recipe, GaylJ!!

This is a wonderfully tasty burger recipe! I followed the directions (used chicken breast which I whizzed in the food processor) but just had to add some chopped fresh coriander to the burger mix. Wonderful flavours and so easy to make. The minted cucumbers were a great crunchy addition ( I used a splash of balsamic and an equal splash of olive oil for the dressing. I served these with chunky potato wedges and satay sauce. Thanks Gayla for a yummy recipe!
