Greek Chicken Burgers

I'm open to all types of burgers but at home I mostly make them with poultry.  Chicken and turkey burgers can be a little boring and very dry so it's helpful to spice them up a bit.  I recently discovered a popular greek place in our new neighborhood that I am now obsessed with.  The gyros are soooo dreamy.  (Yes, a sandwich can be dreamy!)  Because I'm too embarrassed to order from them every single night, I've been cooking up a lot of greek inspired foods for dinner here at home.  Think feta, red onion, olive oil, sea salt, spinach, garlic, lemon, parsley and oregano.  If you like what you're reading - this non-boring burger recipe is for you. 

Makes 4 burgers.

Greek Chicken Burgers

2 BIG handfuls of spinach leaves

1/2 cup finely diced red onion

1 clove garlic, minced

juice of 1/2 a lemon

s + p

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

1/4 teaspoon red chile flakes

1/3 - 1/2 cup feta

1 lb ground chicken

Cook spinach in a pan with a splash of water until it begins to wilt.  Remove from pan and squeeze out as much water as you can with your hands.  Chop.  

Combine spinach with all remaining ingredients except of chicken.  Add chicken, mix.  Form into 4 burger patties.  

Heat a skillet oven medium high heat.  Lightly oil skillet.  (I like to use a spray bottle filled with grape seed oil for things like this.)  Cook patties until browned, about 5 minutes, flip, cook until browned.
