Greek Chicken Burgers

Updated: Mar 27


I realized I haven’t posted a non-desi recipe in a while so here we are! I bring you - Greek chicken burgers! These are incredibly easy, tasty and healthy too. There’s not much prep work to these burgers or too many ingredients which brings this meal together in under or around just 30 minutes!


My husband always complains that I make everything spicy so I left spiciness out of this recipe. You can add hot sauce, more chili flakes or even cayenne to the burger mix if you like. I added sriracha on to mine.


You can leave the feta cheese out to make it dairy free. However, I never say no to feta! You can add this burger patty on top of a Greek salad as well if you’re not feelin’ a burger or wanna leave out the extra carbs. Although the spice ingredients are minimal, this burger is still packed with flavor! It’s herby, tangy, lemony and garlicky. It tastes super fresh and is a flavor bomb in your mouth! Can’t wait for you guys to try this one! Don’t forget to tag me @thecurriedcook so I can see your recreations!

Chicken burgers:


1. Add all the ingredients under “chicken patties” in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Divide into quarters for burgers or into eighths for sliders. Roll into patties and set aside.

2. Heat grill pan on medium heat and add one tsp oil and swirl around pan. Add in chicken burger patty, you can grill as many as your pan will allow without crowding. Grill for 4 minutes and flip while pressing patty down. Grill for another 3-4 minutes, until burger is cooked all the way through. You can make a slit and check as well.
