Spiced Chicken Burgers with Greek Yogurt

I've been getting tired of my cooking lately for some reason, but this burger has rekindled my love for home-cooking, as it's fresh, clean, and healthy.  Also, I wanted to try the Little Greek Taverna but couldn't get a reservation, so I decided to cook.

I had gotten an online "recipe" from a friend for a spiced burger a few months ago, but never got around to it.  I put recipe in quotes because the "recipe" was really just a list of ingredients to throw together, with no exact measurements.  It's fine most of the time, but I get rather annoyed, because I'm known to under or over-salt things.  Anyway, here it is!  The mise en place (or chopping preparation) can take a little while, but once that's all done, you're pretty much good to go!  This is perfect for the busy student!

Ingredients for the patties:
500g of chicken mince
cilantro (or coriander in Australia)
2-3 red chili pepper
1 medium to small red onion
1 garlic clove
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp red chili powder/cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

pita bread
cucumbers (sliced)

Yogurt (or from my Cucumber Chutney recipe):
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1 cup of yogurt

I just chopped all the ingredients up for the chicken patties and mixed it in with about 2-3 tsp of salt and formed it into patties.  Note: 2-3 tsp is low-sodium, but it can always be added.  Chicken mince is a bit messy, so you might want to cut out aluminum (or aluminium) foil for storing the patties before you touch the meat if you're working alone.  For the yogurt, I kept the cucumbers separate this time, but it can be mixed into the yogurt for chutney...

Heat up the pita over an open fire for a crisper pocket and stuff sliced lettuce and cucumbers along with the patty inside, and add a dollop of yogurt, and voila!
You can freeze them for emergency food or have them for the next week! Yay for not cooking every day...

And I added this in for the lolz... xP
