Greek Spiced Chicken Burgers

Some people don’t like to cook during any heat, well for me, I just love to cook.  You find me in my kitchen making a coconut cake on a 95°F day. (BTW we don’t have A/C, so imagine making a cake in a 350°F with just a fan!)
Last week, I was on Pinterest looking for ideas, and came across a recipe from aapplemint.com, and was inspired to revamp this recipe from is Euro roots.  Even Craig liked it…..
 
Greek  Spiced Chicken Burgers
     with Dilled Greek Lemon Yogurt
 
1 ½lb  Ground Chicken
3 Red Chilies' (Anaheim) seeds removed (leave em' in if you like heat!!)
3 cloves Garlic, Chopped
1 Red Onion, Finely chopped
Handful Cilantro, Chopped
1 tsp Red Chili powder
2 tsp Cumin powder
2 tsp Kabob spice
Salt to taste
 
½ English  cucumber sliced with skin on
8 oz Greek Yogurt
Juice of ½ lemon
1/2 small cucumber, thinly sliced and chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh garlic
Dill weed, Chopped

Slices of fresh tomato
Few leaves of fresh crunchy lettuce
 
For making the Chicken burger, bring together in a mixing bowl, the chicken, spices, cilantro, chilies, garlic and onion. Mix it well with your hand and form flat patties, chill until ready to grill. Grill, until completely cooked. (180°F)
 
Meanwhile whip together the Greek yogurt, Dill, Lemon juice and some salt. Warm the pita bread slightly. Spread inside of pita with Greek yogurt, place the lettuce right at the bottom, then place the burger and top it up with a few slices of the cucumber or tomato. Enjoy!
