I always have to think about what snack to give to my son once he returns from school. I want him to enjoy what he is eating and it should be also healthy. Normally kids like pizzas, burgers but instead of buying them from outside, I prefer making them at home with a healthy touch. The kids always otherwise are fussy eaters especially with vegetables. So we moms have to constantly think about how to make them go in their tummies. As a result, we keep hiding them somewhere or the other in their food. But my son catches me many times so this time I decided to prepare something with spinach but making it taste delicious by hiding in his favorite burger buns. This is one of my healthy recipes, very simple and quick to prepare. You can prepare the patties and refrigerate and use whenever required by warming in the oven. The patty is made out of chicken which is marinated with spinach paste, mixed with some spices and then baked .

- 2-3 big boneless, skinless chicken pieces
