  • 3 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled
  • 1 medium zucchini, peeled
  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup parsley, chopped
  • 6 flatbreads or naan

1. Warm 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute until soft, about 4 minutes. Add brown sugar and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Add strawberries, balsamic vinegar, and black pepper; cook for 1 minute. Stir in mint and remove from heat.

2. Preheat grill to medium. Using a box grater or mandoline, shred carrot and zucchini, then chop into small pieces. In a large bowl, lightly mix shredded vegetables, ground chicken, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, egg, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Form into 6 patties and brush with remaining vegetable oil.

3. Place burgers on grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Meanwhile, toast bread for 1 to 2 minutes per side.

4. Line flatbreads with arugula, add burgers, and top with strawberry sauce, then fold bread over burgers.
