Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • BURGERS:
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted sweet red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Greek seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground chicken
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Lettuce leaves and tomato slices, optional

Directions

Preheat broiler. Mix cucumber and mayonnaise. For burgers, mix red pepper and seasonings. Add chicken and cheese; mix lightly but thoroughly (mixture will be sticky). Shape into six 1/2-in.-thick patties.
Broil burgers 4 in. from heat until a thermometer reads 165°, 3-4 minutes per side. Serve in buns with cucumber sauce. If desired, top with lettuce and tomato.
Freeze option: Place uncooked patties on a plastic wrap-lined baking sheet; wrap and freeze until firm. Remove from pan and transfer to a large resealable plastic bag; return to freezer. To use, broil frozen patties as directed, increasing time as necessary.
