Mediterranean Chicken Patties

on December 13, 2011

    This is a great recipe for a light, healthy burger pattie. You can switch the meat for ground beef, lamb, pork or turkey; we paired these patties with a lemony greek yogurt sauce. The patties are great on their own, or you can pair it
with a light, refreshing cucumber and tomato salad, as shown in the photo. This recipe serves 6-8 depending on how large you like the patties. Hope you enjoy
The tzatziki sauce pairs well with fish dishes, kabobs and pita chips!
Tzatziki Sauce (serves 20)
1 (16 ounce) container plain low-fat greek yogurt (I LOVE Chobani)
1 small English cucumber with peel, grated (you can use a small cucumber)
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh or dried oregano
3 tablespoons chopped fresh or dried marjoram
Chicken Patties (serves 6-8) you can alter the amount of chicken you use, depending on how many people you are serving!
3 chicken breast fillets
2 chicken thigh fillets
1 large red pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
2 gloves garlic, minced
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped flat leaf parsley, you can use dried or fresh
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 pinch ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, for sauteeing
Directions start w/ the sauce!
  • Stir together yogurt, grated cucumber, garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil in a bowl.
  • Add lemon zest, dill, salt, and pepper; whisk until smooth.
  • Pour into a serving dish, cover tightly, and refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving. The longer it sits, the better!
  • Saute the onion, garlic and pepper in the olive oil. Once tender, set aside and let cool
  • While the onion mixture is cooling, in a food processor, blend the chicken into a paste (it looks bad, but trust me its going to be AWESOME!!!)
  • Add egg, spices, seasonings and the onion mixture into a bowl with the chicken paste. MIX WELL.
  • Make into patties of your sizable desire.
  • On a baking sheet, placw wax paper or foil, spray with cooking spray and place patties.

Serve on their own, or with a salad; top the patties with the tzatziki sauce and feta crumbles! This pic above is my hubby’s plate, he made them into burgers and added them to a 100 cal bun!
