Everyday Food Chicken Koftas with Cucumbers and Yogurt
This recipe has 11 ingredients and I was easily able to find everything at my local grocery store. I normally grind my own chicken fresh, but for this recipe I used frozen ground chicken that I had made at an earlier date. My total prep and cooking time was approximately 30 minutes. I followed the recipe as stated, with the exception of adding 1/2 teaspoon of cumin as suggested, I made no other modifications.
Since I cook and bake so frequently, I am bound to run into recipes that are less than stellar. This recipe ended up being one of those occasions. My husband and I were not fans of the chicken being formed into patties. The chicken was dry, I would have preferred it crumbled and my husband thought it would benefit from the patties being as thin as a fast food burger. There was too little sauce for the amount of meat and I was not a fan of the mint being loose instead of incorporated into the sauce. I think that this dish would have benefited from the addition of more spice to the chicken patties. I love finding healthier ways to make common dishes, but this is one recipe that I will stick to the traditional lamb version, the taste is so much better!
