How to make Chicken, Zucchini, and Fresh Corn Burgers

Step 1: In a small bowl, combine the Greek yoghurt sauce ingredients. Set in the fridge until ready to use.

Step 2: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees.

Step 3: Place the burger ingredients except for oil in a large bowl. Mix well until combined using your hands, then shape the mixture into patty sizes.

Step 4: In a large frying pan, pour enough oil to cover the bottom and heat over medium heat. Sear the burgers in the hot oil for about 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. To a king sheet, carefully transfer the seared burgers. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 7 to 10 minutes until completely cooked.

Step 5: In the meantime, ready the tomato-cucumber relish. In a medium-sized bowl, place the tomato-cucumber relish ingredients, stirring gently until mixed.

Step 6: When done, remove the burgers from the oven and serve immediately with Homemade Flour Tortillas spread with a little hummus. You can also enjoy them with pita bread, basmati rice, mashed potatoes, pasta, etc.
