Ok, I know I’ve been giving you guys TONS of different burgers lately but I can’t help it! It’s burger season and I’m 100% taking advantage of the weather to grill out and eat all. the. burgers. with all. the. toppings. I opted to make this burger with ground chicken because it’s seriously one of my favorite meats to turn into a burger. It can take a lot of flavors and always turns out juicy. Plus it’s a nice twist to the normal all-American beef burger.

As always the burger patty is packed full of spices and fresh herbs because I am unable to make burgers without including tons of flavor. This is sometimes where Art and I disagree. I’m all “can we chops up all the things in the fridge and put it into the burger?!” and he is more “let’s just season it with salt and pepper so we can taste the meat.” Don’t get me wrong, sometimes that’s nice BUT most of the time I want FLAVOR and I’m not ashamed to admit it!

I also have a thing about burgers needing toppings. Please never hand me a plain burger. I will weep in sadness. Burgers are like a canvas just waiting to be covered with all the things. Sometimes those things are fried eggs or avocados and sometimes those things are crunchy cucumbers, sauteed red onions, cilantro, and Greek yogurt sauce. PLUS when I have a burger I want the bun to hold up to my toppings. I don’t want some bun that its too small and can’t handle my big fat patties with all the fixings. Luckily for me this year, I found the perfect bun Pepperidge Farm® Farmhouse Hearty Buns. These babies are big enough to hold your extra large (or normal size if you’re me…) burger patty PLUS every topping imaginable.

Now, if you’re wondering “what’s in this chicken tandoori burger?” I’m about to tell you! It’s packed with cilantro, mint, garam masala and crushed red pepper. It’s not too spicy but the heat level can be adjusted to match your desired taste. Basically, this burger is a burst of Indian flavor between 2 soft buns. To round it all out I served with a homemade Greek yogurt sauce that combines yogurt, lime, chopped cilantro and even more garam masala. This burger is unique but is still a total crowd pleaser.

    I like pretty much anything chopped up and mixed into a burger, but tandoori spices are by far a favorite.

    Ah yeah. That’s how you know it’s summer time — it’s burgers galore! I love the flavor twist of this chicken burger. I happen to love tandoori so this is going on the to-make list (perhaps with a meat-sub but I know my family would love it as it is!) 🙂
