Turkey Kafta

This dish was found at Culinary Infatuation.
It is traditionally made with lamb and beef, but Ally made it successfully with ground chicken and I had some ground turkey- so I thought I'd give it a try. This really was great- the cucumber-yogurt dipping sauce is great for a summer night!

Chicken Kafta

1 lb ground chicken (or turkey)
1/4 cup grated onion
2 tbs. fresh chopped parsley
2 tsp. ground coriander
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. olive oil
1.5 Tbs. bread crumbs (I used this because the grated onion made the meat rather wet)
salt and pepper to taste (I would use 1/2 t. salt at least next time)

Preheat oven to broil
Mix all ingredients together and shape into oblong patties. Lightly oil an oven safe grill pan and arrange the patties on top. put in broiler and cook for about 5-6 minutes each side. (the temp may vary so keep an eye on them.)

Serve with a simple puree of cucumber, mint, and yogurt.
