Spinach and Feta Chicken Burgers
Tender and juicy chicken burgers that have so much flavour and lots of healthy “hidden” ingredients. Whip them up quickly for a delicious weeknight dinner or BBQ cookout. These are low carb and gluten-free.
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 1 green onion diced
- 1 small carrot grated
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder or 1 small clove minced
- 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup spinach finely chopped
- 1/3 cup crumbled feta
For the basil pesto
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp pesto
In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients for the chicken burgers, and mix thoroughly until everything is well combined.
Form the burgers into four patties (about 1/2 inch thickness) and place each one on a piece of parchment paper and then on a plate.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to cook.
Preheat a frying pan (I prefer cast iron) on medium heat. Add 1 tbsp of avocado oil, and add the chicken burgers once it’s hot. Cook for 10-12 minutes until the burgers are nicely browned and have a slight crispiness on the outside.
Serve on a bun with the pesto mayonnaise and some greens.
I love to also grill the chicken burgers in the summer. Cook for the same amount of time on the BBQ.
