1. Prepare a medium-hot fire in a barbecue grill. In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken, onion, bread crumbs, garlic, mint, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper. Mix with your hands to blend well. Form into 6 oval patties, each about 4 1/2 inches long and 1/2 inch thick.
2. Grill chicken patties, turning once, until white throughout but still juicy, about 12 to 15 minutes. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, warm pitas at edge of grill. Split pitas to make pockets, then insert a chicken patty into each. Add chopped tomato, olives, yogurt, and sprouts. Serve at once.
