Zesty Chicken Sliders

In case you get tired of plain hamburgers, try some chicken sliders.  Ground chicken is not something you think of buying, you usually have to ask for it at the butcher counter in the grocery store, but it a nice change.   Instead of using a regular bun, try using a leaf of iceberg lettuce to wrap around your slider.
Ingredients:
10 ounces ground chicken
1/2 medium onion, yellow, finely minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoon parsley, fresh, chopped
1 medium lemon, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon oil, olive
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds 1 teaspoon salt, sea
1 teaspoon oil, olive

Directions:
Add the first five ingredients to a mixing bowl. From the lemon, add 2 teaspoons of zest and 4 teaspoons of fresh juice. Combine all the ingredients using your hands. Do not over mix. Form four patties.
Place a frying pan over medium high heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil. While that is heating, put caraway seeds and salt into a small bowl. On a separate plate, pour 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
Before placing the sliders in the pan lightly roll them in the oil and then in the seasonings. Fry on each side 3 to 5 minutes or until done to your liking.

Stay hungry my friend!
