Burgers be gone! After one bite, these mini chicken sliders are all your kids will be raving about. The yogurt (we like Greek yogurt) combined with the garlic and lemon adds flavor to the slider and is a much healthier condiment than mayo. You can even prepare the ground chicken mixture the night before and the next day all you need to do is fire up the grill or stovetop before dinnertime. It’s really that easy.

Ingredients
Chicken patties:
1 lb ground chicken
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
2 tsp lemon or lime juice
salt and pepper
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp cold water
1-2 tbsp oil (for frying patties)

Optional:
2 tsp garlic, minced
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped

Yogurt sauce:
1 cup yogurt
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
2 tsp lemon or lime juice
salt and pepper
8-10 mini burger buns or dinner rolls

Method
1. In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken with all the ingredients for the chicken patties, except the oil needed for frying the patties. Knead the mixture well for 5-7 minutes (this helps to bind the patties naturally, without using eggs or bread crumbs). Let the chicken mixture rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or overnight.

2. Divide the chicken mixture into 8-10 equal portions. With lightly oiled hands, start shaping each portion into little patties, about 2-1/2 inches in diameter.

3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan; fry the patties until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.

4. To make the yogurt sauce, mix all the ingredients for the sauce together. Serve immediately or keep covered in fridge for up to 2 days.
