Greek Style Chicken Burgers
I had the day off work yesterday which meant that I had extra time to experiment with what I was going to make for dinner! I had been eyeing a container of ground chicken in the freezer for months and knew that I wanted to put it to good use. In October I went to a restaurant in Fort Lauderdale called Fork & Balls where I had some delicious chicken balls on top of a kale salad. I used that recipe as inspiration for this dish! I used all fresh ingredients that I had in my fridge. I love when I create a recipe on a whim and it turns our fabulously!
I hate mushy textures, so I was nervous about mixing the ingredients up with my hands. Seriously. I have an irrational fear of touching squishy foods. I used to refuse to help make meatballs or meatloaf for dinner for that reason. But alas, I survived and made a delicious meal!
Here is what the burgers looked like pre-grilling!
The ingredients you will need for 5 servings are as follows:
- 1.00 lb(s), Ground Chicken
- 2.00 cup(s), Spinach – Raw
- 0.33 cup(s), Cheese, feta
- 3.00 clove(s), Garlic, raw
- 1.00 tsp(s), Spices, garlic powder

- 1.00 tsp(s), Peppers, sweet, red, raw
- 0.50 tsp, Spices, onion powder
- 1.00 medium, Roma Tomato
|I served mine up on a bed of greens with a salad & my favorite coconut roasted Japanese sweet potatoes 🙂
I am including the nutrition info below as many people have been asking for that.
