Ingredients

  • 1 pound extra-lean ground chicken breast
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 7 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 reduced-calorie hamburger rolls
  • 1 cup thickly sliced romaine lettuce
  • 2/3 cups water-packed roasted red peppers, drained and sliced
  • 5 small black olives, sliced

Directions

Preheat the grill over medium heat or the broiler.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the chicken, oregano, garlic powder, and feta. Divide the mixture into 4 balls and then press them gently into patties.

Grill or broil the patties until the internal temperature of the burgers reaches 165 degrees, about 7-8 minutes per side. Serve each burger on a bun with ¼ of the lettuce, ¼ of the peppers, and 1 teaspoon of the olives.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
