"These Mediterranean-inspired chicken patties are a light contrast to your beef burgers and compliment any backyard get-together. If you use all-breast meat, add some olive oil to the meat mixture so they don't dry out. You could also use 2 tablespoons chopped Kalamata olives instead of the tapenade. Use tzatziki sauce on top to stay with the Mediterranean flavors or use a sesame dressing with shredded lettuce for an Asian taste." — Jeanette

crumbled feta cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons
coarse-ground black pepper
This was VERY good! Flavorful, moist, and ready in a snap! I don't do bread (gotta watch my girl-ish figure) so I put it on a salad instead. Thank you!
What a winner! Really yum. I used 1 lb ea of ground chicken & turkey because that's what I had on hand when I found the recipe online today. I also used 2 Tbsp of chopped black olives instead of the tepenade as someone suggested, thanks! 2 Tbsp dry instead of fresh oregano, also because that's what I had on hand. I made 8 smaller patties. Used grill on stove-top instead of BBQ. I might put in 50% more feta next time. This recipe would also make awesome meatballs. Thank you!
Fixed these using a green olive and orange tapenade. I think you could use whatever kind you have in hand. The flavor and moistness is outstanding. I pan fried them and they did not need oil in the pan. We don't eat our burgers on buns and these were wonderful on their own...no sauce needed, but would benefit from sauce if you wanted to add it. Will go into my favorites file
This was so easy and I happened to have olive tapenade in the cabinet from a recent trip, so it worked out. I didn't use bread, instead I put on top of a spinach, olive, cucumber, red onion and cherry tomato salad with a little balsamic vinegar. Very tasty, extrememly moist and a needed healthy change from the typical beef burger.
