These flavorful burgers get rave reviews and are remarkably easy to put together. Sauteed onion and yogurt keep the lean chicken patties super moist while a blend of pantry spices makes them taste extra special.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, add the onion, cinnamon, coriander, pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and season with pepper. Cook until onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and parsley and cook until garlic is fragrant, about 1 more minute. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool slightly. Stir in the chicken and yogurt until the onion are evenly mixed. Season with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and some pepper. Shape into 4 1/2-inch thick patties.
Cook in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the sides of the burgers registers between 165 and 170 degrees F. Brush burgers with the pomegranate molasses and set aside to rest for 5 minutes. Serve on toasted buns with fixings.
Pomegranate molasses is a sweet and tart condiment made from pomegranate juice. Look for it in the Middle Eastern section of many supermarkets.
