What to do with ground chicken

After a potluck/cooking competition at work, and some very delicious Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps, we ended up with two 1- lb. containers of ground chicken that have been hiding in the freezer. Technically, you can probably replace ground turkey with ground chicken in just about any recipe, but I just wasn’t feeling terribly inspired by any of them (when it’s NOT almost 80 degrees out, I’d be happy to tackle some warm and comforting chicken chili…). I came across a Weight Watchers recipe for Chicken Feta Burgers – sounded quick and yummy. My pictures just weren’t worth posting, but I thought the recipe was. So here it is.

Chicken Feta Burgers (adapted from Weight Watchers)


1 lb uncooked ground chicken

7 TBS reduced fat crumbled feta

1 TBS minced fresh oregano

1 tsp garlic powder


Mix all of the above together, and form into four patties. Broil 6 minutes on each side.

The original recipe called for roasted peppers and olives, neither of which I’m a huge fan of. Instead I whipped up some Tzatziki sauce, and served it on these, which were a new find today at the grocery store and very yummy!

 Tzatziki Sauce


1 container Fage 0% greek yogurt

4 minced garlic cloves

½ cucumber, seeds removed and shredded

1 tsp fresh lemon juice


Mix all of the above ingredients together.


I also added some sliced tomato and thinly sliced red onion…I think some chopped spinach on the burgers would have been great too!
