1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced 

1 medium white onion, finely diced 

1 tablespoon freshly minced ginger

1 pound ground chicken 

1 tablespoon garam masala 

1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric 

Coarse salt

Two 8-ounce cans tomato sauce 

2 tablespoons honey

Four whole-wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted 

Fresh cilantro sprigs, for garnish 


  1. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion and ginger and saute until they begin to slightly brown, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until cooked through. Add the garam masala, turmeric and a good pinch of salt and saute another 2 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and honey; continue to let simmer until slightly reduced and thickened, another 5 minutes. Give it another good pinch of salt to taste.
  2. Serve with buns and garnish with fresh cilantro sprigs.
