Feta-Dill Chicken Burgers
I found fresh ground chicken at the butcher and gave it a whirl on our new grill. The result is these saucy burgers. Everybody went nuts—including my sister-in-law, an amazing cook! —Wendy Boughton, Victoria, British Columbia

These burgers are FANTASTIC!!! Mixture was a little too soft for me to chance the bbq, so I fried them in a pan with a little oil. The whole family loved them, will be making again very soon!
