Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken

  • 1 small red onion, chopped

  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons ground red chile pepper (Optional)

  • 2 tablespoons non-fat plain yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon tandoori paste

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (Optional)

  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste

  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste

  • ½ teaspoon garam masala

  • 1 cup bread crumbs

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Mix chicken, red onion, cilantro, chili powder, yogurt, tandoori paste, lemon juice, parsley, cumin, red pepper flakes, garlic paste, ginger paste, and garam masala together in a bowl; cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator for up to 2 days.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Stir bread crumbs and egg into chicken mixture; form into patties. Arrange patties on a baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes per side.

  5. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook burgers in the hot oil until browned, 7 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Substitute tandoori powder for tandoori paste if desired.
