Chicken and Feta Burgers


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.

4 burgers


  • 1 ½ pounds ground chicken

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano

  • 1 tablespoon Kalamata-olive tapenade

  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese

  • 1 ½ tablespoons crushed garlic

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • tablespoon coarse-ground black pepper


  1. Mix chicken, oregano, tapenade, feta cheese, and garlic together in a bowl; form into 4 patties. Season burgers with salt and pepper.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate with olive oil.

  3. Cook patties until charred on bottom, about 5 minutes. Flip the burgers and finish cooking, refraining from flattening with your spatula until no longer pink in the middle, about 5 minutes more. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels before serving.
