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.

Directions

  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.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

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
