Serves: 4

Tzatziki Sauce

  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup plain, low-fat Greek yogurt

Chicken Burgers

  • 1 egg
  • 2 ounces crumbled, reduced-fat feta cheese
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 10 Kalamata olives, chopped and pitted
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound 95 – 97% lean ground chicken
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 small head iceberg lettuce, cut into eight bun-sized pieces
  1. Chop half of the cucumber into small pieces, and place in a small bowl. Slice remaining cucumber into thin slices for sandwiches, and set aside. Add remaining sauce ingredients to small bowl, and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the first nine burger ingredients. Add chicken, and mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four burger patties.
  3. Moisten a paper towel with oil, and, using cooking tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Add burgers, and grill covered, over medium heat, until a meat thermometer reads 165° F (about 5 to 7 minutes on each side).
  4. Serve on iceberg lettuce “buns” with tomato slices, remaining cucumber, and sauce.
