Chicken and Feta Burgers

Recipe by  

"These Mediterranean-inspired chicken patties are a light contrast to your beef burgers and complement 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."

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 sauce needed, but would benefit from sauce if you wanted to add it. Will go into my favorites file

We enjoyed these burgers, used goat cheese not feta, i find feta to salty.I left the Kalamata-olive tapenade out because i had none.I baked them and they turned out very good, and the goat cheese melted nicely inside. I had roasted mixed veggies. and garlic mayo as a dip for the burgers, thank you Jeanette for the recipe. Will be making these again..

This recipe worked well for me. I was looking for a quick and easy recipe to use up some ground chicken and found this one. It is similar to one I used from the site for ground turkey. I don't have a handy grill in the winter, so I just broiled them indoors on a foil lined baking sheet. Meat comes in 1 lb packs, so I used that but kept the rest of the ingredient amounts basically the same. I actually weighed out the 2 oz of feta and it came to 1/3 of a cup. I didn't have kalamata olive tapenade. So, I finely chopped 1 tablespoon and mixed with a tsp of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. For the 1 tablespoon of fresh oregano I used 1 tsp of dried. The garlic took an amount about 5 ex large cloves. Mincing the garlic was the most time consuming part of the recipe. I got 7 chicken burgers using 1/4 cup scoop at 130 calories made as written. ty

Never have dry ground chicken again with this recipe... and the flavours are outstanding! I made mini shepherds pies with this and another mashed potato recipe that used feta cheese as well. Mmm

Great recipe! Served on toasted english muffins, lettuce and tomato. It was a hit!

This was sooo good! I did use ground turkey though and extra feta because I am a cheese freak. Did not a get chance to take any pictures because my family basically inhaled them.
