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.

So, one more week to go for the big day. In case you have been living under a rock you know I mean the Super Bowl!! As I have said earlier I am not a huge sports fan, but how can you not have a little excitement over the biggest game day of the year. Folks wait all year for the game, the commercials, and of course the food!!! People plan for their Super Bowl parties all year. Burgers, nachos, snacks of all kinds and of course…….Meatballs. I happen to think meatballs are the cornerstone of any party because who in the world does not like them! You can use any kind of ground meat, and flavor it in so many different way. My recent post of Chicken Enchilada Meatballs has been one of my most popular recipes to date. You may want to add them as part of your game day feast. But I also think these Hoisin Meatballs can be that surprise element that every host needs to have for any party……..you know that dish that no one expects but they end up loving. Give these a try. They are easy to make and can hold in a crock pot easily. Continue reading “Hoisin Meatballs”

I don’t know about sports, but I do know what to serve to those who are…….Chicken Enchilada Meatballs of course.
