These Greek-style chicken burgers surprise with a feta cheese filling.



Original recipe yields 5 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified


  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Mix the chicken, bread crumbs, egg, lemon juice, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; form the mixture into 5 patties. Divide the feta cheese between the 5 patties; place a portion of the feta cheese atop each patty and fold the chicken mixture around the cheese so that the cheese is in the center.

  • Cook on the preheated grill until no longer pink on the inside and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).

I'm not sure why they took off my recommendation when I posted the recipe - I suggested serving them with a roasted red pepper sauce but tzatziki or something similar would be just as good. Definitely better with some sort of sauce though I agree! Read More

Oh my goodness!! Delicious! I love and use it all the time but this was the first recipe to make me right a review. These burgers had so much flavor! I was a little worried because I made them for a group of 12 but after eating them I printed out the recipe for everyone per request. A few minor changes: I used more breadcrumbs and before throwing them on bbq I fried on a skillet with minimal oil to get them nice and firm so they wouldn't fall through the grill. I served with "Easy Greek Yogurt Cucumber Sauce" from this site and it was an A dinner that I will continue to make for the rest of my life! Thanks DC Katie Read More

I thought this was an excellent way to eat a burger in a more healthier way than red meat. I did add a little more sun-dried tomatoes and herbs and also some minced garlic but we are garlic loving family! Also instead of "folding" in the feta I made two thin patties added feta put the two together and mashed and pinched the sides together to keep closed. I didn't really understand the folding in thing. I would need to see someone do it to be know what they are talking about. I also used Tzatziki sauce on the burgers as a condiment. I will definitely make it again! Read More

Fabulous! I made the recipe as called for (although I used dried spices not fresh) and it turned out amazing. Love the feta cheese center! I put roasted red pepper hummus on the buns and served with lettuce. Delicious. I'll definitely be making this again. Read More

I've made this only twice but the first time I used fresh spices and the second time I used dried; honestly they tested similar enough that I'd cheap out and go with the latter. Delicious and moist! Read More

Really disappointed in these dry/tasteless ground chicken burgers after all the good reviews. Made as written but to no avail. I topped with leftover homemade tzatziki sauce (from the chicken gyro souvlaki pita recipe on this site REALLY good try it) red onions tomato and lettuce in hopes of salvaging but it just had no taste at all. Only advice I can give if you do want to make this is to make sure and use one pound of chicken and do make 5 burgers. Bigger is NOT better with this recipe the seasonings are so subtle that you need the less meat to more seasoning ratio. Also the egg addition makes the mixture very ooey gooey. Folding in the feta is a little weird b/c it's so wet but by the third burger you'll be a pro at the insert/fold-over/pat into burger shape. I won't remake but a lot of folks on here will so if it interests you try it. Read More

These were very yummy but a little dry. It needed something else. Maybe a sauce or Greek dressing even. I will definately make them again. Read More

Have had his recipe for a while in my box but today I decided on ground chicken burgers. Changed this a little bit. Added egg Panko crumbs lemon jce and had some roasted red peppers w/garlic so added instead of sun-dried tomatoes. Very moist & delish. Added dried oregano and basil and dried cumin coriander ginger tarragon curry powder & garlic powder. Skipped salt & pepper. Had some fat free feta and put that into the ground chicken. Heated my favorite non-stick pan w/light olive oil and made the burgers in about 15 minutes. Great flavor and exremely moist & flavorful. Could use sun-dried tomatoes next time but this was great. Served with a simple salad and homemade honey mustard dressing. WOW! Read More
