Ingredients

Spinach Artichoke Mix

  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion minced about ½ cup
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 oz fresh spinach roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup Artichoke hearts in water unflavored chopped

Burgers

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • zest of 1 lemon grated
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian Herb mix
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes more if you like it spicy.
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Heat a medium skillet over medium heat and add extra virgin olive oil.
  • Add onions, and ½ teaspoon of kosher salt. Cook onions until translucent. You will need to stir every few minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add spinach and artichoke hearts, cook, stirring, for 30-60 seconds, or until spinach wilts.
  • In a large bowl, add the ground chicken, lemon zest, egg yolk, red pepper, Italian herbs and black pepper. Add in the partially cooled spinach mixture and crumbled feta.
  • Mix well with your hands to combine.
  • Form the mixture into 5-6 patties, wetting your hands slightly to make it easier if it’s sticky.
  • Note: you can cover and refrigerate patties at this point if you want to make them later in the day
  • When ready to cook, oil grill grates with olive oil or butter, heat your grill to medium-high heat.
  • Place patties on grill, cover grill, lower heat to medium and let cook 3-4 minutes.
  • Flip patties, they should release easily from the grill grates when you slide the spatula under the pattie.
  • After you flip, cook an additional 3-4 minutes, with the grill closed, or until the patties are cooked through.
  • Transfer to a platter to serve with assorted toppings of your choice.

Notes

These are great served as a leftover, I enjoy them cold
