Makes: 5 burgers

  • 450g chicken, blitzed in a food processor until minced
  • 55g bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grid.
  2. Mix the chicken, breadcrumbs, egg, lemon juice, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt and pepper together in a bowl; form the mixture into 5 burgers. Divide the feta cheese between the 5 burgers; place a portion of the feta cheese atop each burger and fold the chicken mixture around the cheese so that the cheese is in the centre.
  3. Cook on the preheated barbecue until no longer pink on the inside and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read 75 degrees C.
