Tandoori Chicken Burgers

Tandoori Chicken Burger

The weather might be trying to keep a foothold in winter but, I am ready for Spring!!! This winter has been sooooo long, cold and snowy. I am not a huge winter weather lover, but this year was about more than a girl could stand. I will be putting my boots and winter coat away and no matter what happens, I will not put them on again until November!!!!!


Now, my rant is over, on to Spring talk…….I am ready to grill again. I know…….you can grill all winter if you want too, but, I don’t like to be cold ,so I AM NOT going to stand outside in the cold to grill. Sorry I think that was a rant again…….

Burgers, they beg to be grilled. I did not grill this burger, but will most certainly be making the Tandoori Chicken Burgers again very soon…… on the grill….did you hear that Mother Nature?

I have seen these burgers made with lamb, beef, or chicken, but in an effort to begin eating better, I chose chicken. The bread is Naan, an Indian flatbread, instead of a traditional bun. I am sure you can make the bread yourself, but I have found it readily available at the grocery store.

The Tandoori Chicken Burger is flavor packed, and topped with cucumber, red onion, cilantro and a cool yogurt sauce. Wrapped in the Naan, it makes a healthy alternative to a regular burger.
