Chicken burgers with feta Add to ...

The feta and olives in these burgers give them a great Mediterranean flavour.

Try serving them as a large burger or smaller mini-burgers in a pita as you would a falafel. Add shredded lettuce, chopped tomato and a tzatziki sauce. The mixture also makes a great meatloaf. Bake for about 45 minutes at 350 F.

  • Servings: 4


1 cup well-packed fresh spinach

¼ cup finely crumbled feta

¼ cup finely chopped green onions

1 teaspoon chopped garlic

2 tablespoons chopped oregano

½ teaspoon grated lemon rind

1 tablespoon finely chopped green olives

500 grams ground chicken

Salt and freshly ground pepper


Wilt spinach in microwave or in a skillet. Squeeze out any moisture and chop (it should come to about ¼ cup).

Combine spinach, feta, green onions, garlic, oregano, lemon rind and olives in a bowl. Add ground chicken and use your hands or a spatula to gently incorporate without over-mixing. Season well with salt and pepper.

Divide evenly into 4 portions (or 8 for mini-burgers, 2 per pita) and shape into 1-inch thick patties.

Grill patties on high heat with the lid closed for 4 minutes per side or until juices run clear.
