Chicken Burgers over a Greek Chickpea Salad

Happy Thursday!!
This dinner is super simple to make, healthy, and most importantly, absolutely delicious! The chicken burgers are juicy, and the chickpea salad is full of flavors. I tossed the chickpeas with olives, roasted red peppers, and feta cheese! This dinner is sure to be a favorite!
Onto the recipe!

Chicken Burgers over a Greek Chickpea Salad (serves 4) 
  • 2 lbs ground chicken 
  • 2 cups chickpeas, canned
  • 1/2 cup roasted red pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup tzatziki 
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • oil to grease pan
First we are going to make the chickpea salad, this way the chickpeas can absorb the flavors while the chicken burgers are cooking. Whisk together lemon juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Add in chickpeas, feta cheese, black olives, fresh dill, and roasted red peppers. Mix until well combined. Set aside.

Lightly coat a large pan over medium-high heat with olive oil. Form four burger patties with the ground chicken. They will be pretty large, but will shrink down while it cooks out the fat. Place patties in pan and cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through completely.

Now it is time to plate! Place about 1/2 cup chickpea salad per plate, then top with the chicken burger, tzatziki, feta, and fresh dill. Serve and enjoy!!
