Falafel burgers with a lemon yogurt sauce mark the first recipe I created myself. Use leftover falafel mix to bread fish, chicken and veggies or use in meatballs. —Nicole Mederos, Hoboken, New Jersey

  1. If desired, prepare onion rings according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix sauce ingredients. In a large bowl, mix the first seven burger ingredients. Add chicken; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick patties. Place 1/2 cup falafel mix in a shallow bowl (save remaining mix for another use). Press patties into falafel mix, patting to help coating adhere.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add burgers; cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165°. Serve burgers on buns with sauce and arugula; if desired, add an onion ring to each. Yield: 4 servings.
