Chicken Kafta with Tzatziki

DH selected this dish for our weekly menu — and I think we both thought it would be more like “gyros” than it was.

Admittedly, a little disappointed. I didn’t particularly like the flavors in the chicken…I think I just found them too weak, to be honest. We also don’t have a grill, so I broiled mine — but grilling may have added to their flavor.
I did take Culinary Infatuation’s advice, and served it with a little tzatziki sauce — quite tasty!
Chicken Kafta
1 lb. ground chicken
1/4 cup grated onion
2 tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
2 tsp. ground coriander
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. olive oil
1.5 tbsp. bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
– Preheat oven to Broil
– Mix all ingredients together and shape into oblong patties
– Lightly oil an oven-safe grill pan and arrange patties on top
– Put in broiler and cook for about 5-6 minutes per side (temp may vary — keep an eye on them!)

    i havent had chicken kofta since i was in egypt . and also in dearborn . this recipe was amazing i did change it a little and i thought i would give you the tips .

    1 i did grill it on the grill made a world of diffrence . also i used garlic paste you can find that at a local indian grocery store ( i never bought it anywhere else ) or you can make your own with just throwing some garlic cloves in the blender it made a world of diffrence and gave it a great flavor . also i made garlic sauce with it and hummus with pita . and couscous . thankyou so much for posting this recipe i think if you do the garlic paste and grill it ( even on a george forman would make a world of diffrence . i used double your recipe and i put the equal amount of garlic paste as u did powder .
