main meals | Salty feta cheese adds a kick to these poultry-based burgers – nobody will miss the beef.
1 pound uncooked ground chicken breast
1 Tbsp fresh oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder
7 Tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
4 small wheat pita(s)
4 piece lettuce, romaine
2/3 cup roasted red peppers, sliced (without oil)
5 small olive(s), black, sliced (about 4 tsp)
Preheat grill, broiler, or spray a pan with Pam.
Mix chicken, oregano, garlic powder and feta together in a medium-sized bowl; divide mixture into four balls and then press them gently into patties.
Grill or broil patties until internal temperature of burgers reaches 165°F, about 7 to 8 minutes per side.
Serve each burger in a pita with a lettuce leaf, 1/4 of peppers and 1 teaspoon of olives.
this is my all time favorite recipe for ground chicken! i do these up in bulk and freeze. its a quick easy on those days you just to tired to cook. and a quick save on the days you could cave.
the last time i was in the states i went to wal-mart and bought those plastic hamburger presses. they were under $2.00 so i bought 3.
to top these burgers i wither use Steak sauce, which tastes fabulous! or two parts honey to one part dijon mustard, another yummy. hope you enjoy these as much as i do!
