Greek-Style Chicken Burgers

The original recipe for these burgers called for lamb or beef, but I decided to try ground chicken to decrease the fat. The sauce easily doubles as a flavorful dip for veggies and pita chips. —Judy Puskas, Wallaceburg, Ontario

    Can you use ground turkey instead of ground chicken?

    I did not make the tzaziki sauce but used the recipe for the burgers by itself. Delicious! I baked them and served on whole wheat buns with guacamole, lettuce, and cheddar cheese. The whole family gobbled them down so I would absolutely make them again.

    In traditional "tsatsiki" (cucumber sauce) there is no feta.
