Chicken Burgers

This is a great alternative to traditional hamburgers.  The chopped herbs add a wonderful, refreshing flavor.  Our family enjoys them served on pita bread.  We use either whole-wheat or herb spiced pitas, such as basil flavored pitas. 

800 grams minced chicken
4 tablespoons chopped mixed fresh herbs (such as chives, parsley, thyme, rosemary and tarragon)
2 cloves garlic, crushed or grated
1 large egg, beaten
50 grams breadcrumbs

Freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil

Suggested toppings:
Sliced tomatoes
Red onion

Mix burger ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.  Cook a tiny bit of the mixture in a hot pan to try it for flavor.  Shape the mixture into eight burgers.

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry the burgers for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Serve with pita bread or toasted buns with desired toppings.
