Chicken Burger with Vegetables
These Mediterranean-inspired grilled chicken burgers are juicy, flavorful and healthy. This recipe is really easy to make and trust me, it will be a keeper!
Why add vegetables and cheese?
I love adding vegetables and cheese to my burger mixtures. Vegetables add moisture and texture, cheese adds creaminess and salt, and they all add flavor. This method also cuts down on the amount of animal protein, which decreases total saturated fat in the burger, and helps keep leaner cuts, like chicken breast, moist.
Confetti Chicken burgers

- 1 red onion finely chopped
- 2 cups spinach finely chopped
- 1 pound ground chicken breast
- ½ cup feta cheese crumbled
- ½ cup bread crumbs
- 1 egg beaten

- ⅛ teaspoon pepper
Place all ingredients into bowl and mix together well.
Heat up a grill pan and spray with olive oil. Split mixture into 4 patties, grill 4-5 minutes on medium heat, flip and cook 4-5 minutes on other side. To ensure cooking, can add an ounce of water and cover pan after flipping.
