    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.

    Very particular and sharp husband loved it!!!  -  15 Jan 2011


    I'm not sure why they took off my recommendation when I posted the recipe - I suggested serving them with a roasted red pepper sauce, but tzatziki or something similar would be just as good. Definitely better with some sort of sauce though, I agree!  -  02 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Oh my goodness!! Delicious! I love and use it all the time, but this was the first recipe to make me right a review. These burgers had so much flavor! I was a little worried because I made them for a group of 12, but after eating them, I printed out the recipe for everyone per request. A few minor changes: I used more breadcrumbs, and before throwing them on bbq, I fried on a skillet with minimal oil to get them nice and firm so they wouldn't fall through the grill. I served with "Easy Greek Yogurt Cucumber Sauce" from this site, and it was an A+ dinner that I will continue to make for the rest of my life!
