Another healthy dinner, in my tummy. I even exercised today! But don't worry, I evened this out by baking Peanut Butter M&M Butterscotch Cookies this morning. It's about BALANCE, my friends. (More on those later...)
For some reason, I've always thought ground chicken would be dry and flavorless. Well, not if you add Greek yogurt (instead of eggs) and panko (instead of bread crumbs) and spices, honey, lemon zest, garlic, cilantro, and things like this. DELICIOUS! NUTRITIOUS!
I served this with a Chipotle Cream from this recipe, but I cut it in half. It offered a wonderful kick, and my leftover sweet balsamic onions really balanced everything out. Balance.
1 lb. ground chicken
6 oz. non-fat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup panko
1 T crushed garlic
1 tsp honey
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 T chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper
2 T olive oil
Combine the first eight ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Combine with spoon or hands.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Form chicken into 4 patties. Saute for 6 minutes per side.
Serve with chipotle cream and whatever else you fancy.
