  1. Make the chicken burgers: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the McCormick® Garlic Powder, ground ginger, cumin, coriander, turmeric, paprika, chili powder, and salt.
  3. Add the ground chicken to a large bowl with the spice mix, red onion, jalapeño, if using, and egg. Using clean hands or a spatula, mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix to prevent tough burgers.
  4. Divide the chicken mixture into 4 portions and shape into 1-inch-thick patties. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon or your thumb, gently press down on the center of each patty (this will help keep them flat during cooking). Chill the patties in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, until slightly more firm.
  5. While the patties are chilling, make the yogurt sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, lemon zest and juice, parsley, McCormick® Garlic Powder, salt, and olive oil until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  6. Cook the burgers: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken patties and cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches at least 165°F (75°C) and the patties are golden brown. Remove the patties from the pan and let rest for 5 minutes before assembling the burgers.
  7. Place a piece of lettuce and a burger patty on one side of a piece of warmed naan bread, then dollop 3 tablespoons of yogurt sauce on top. Top with cucumber and red onion. Fold the other side of the naan over the burger patty and secure with a toothpick or skewer. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  8. Enjoy!
