Smoky Feta Chicken Burgers

These are so yummy! I love re-purposing ingredients, and using the Pampered Chef dipping seasoning gives these burgers a real depth of flavor. These are also low-fat & low-calorie.

1lb. ground chicken
Drizzle of EVOO
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1 Tbsp. Pamper Chef Spinach & Red Pepper Oil Dipping Seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
3 tsp. worcestershire sauce
3 green onions (scallions), sliced thin

Combine all ingredients by gently mixing with hands. Divide into 4 equal portions and form patties.

Heat skillet to medium-high with a little EVOO in the pan. Cook burgers approximately 6 minutes on each side or until internal temp is around 160 degrees. Flip them only once so you get a nice caramelization on each side.  The residual cooking should bring the temp up to 165 degrees which means they are cooked through (essential when cooking poultry).

Serve on a whole wheat bun dressed with caesar dressing & a handful of spring mix salad.
