Grilled Moroccon-Spiced Turkey Burgers with Mango Chutney Slaw

This was a new recipe I tried and it was so flavorful! We loved it and will be putting this in our favorite pile.
Grilled Moroccan-Spiced Turkey Burgers with Mango Chutney Slaw
adapted from Rachael Ray
3 1/2 -4 lbs ground turkey
2 tbsp cumin
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp sweet or smoked paprika
1 tbsp coriander
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp curry powder
1 small onion, grated
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
zest of 1 lemon (and juice)
salt and pepper
extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup prepared mango chutney
3/4 cup plain yogurt
prepared cabbage mix
8 pita breads
Preheat grill pan to medium high. Combine turkey, cumin, turmeric, paprika, coriander, cayenne, curry powder, onion, garlic, cilantro lemon zest, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well to distribute spices.
Form the mixture into 8 large patties about 1 inch thick. Drizzle pan with extra virgin olive oil and grill them for 6 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
While burgers are grilling, chop chutney, breaking up large chunks. Transfer to bowl and mix with lemon juice and yogurt. Add cabbage mix and a little salt and pepper; toss to combine.
When burgers are done, put pitas on grill and heat on each side to warm up. Open pockets in each pita, nestle a burger inside each and spoon in some mango-chutney slaw.
Serves 8
