Chicken Mediterranean Burgers

These chicken Mediterranean burgers are locked and loaded with flavor, they will be your new go to burger recipe guaranteed. They make for the perfect meal prep item, they freeze well, and go with a variety of meals, so leftovers don’t have to be boring.

What you will need for the burgers:

  1. Ground chicken, ground turkey, ground beef, ground bison
  2. Sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
  3. Feta cheese
  4. Cilantro
  5. Red bell peppers
  6. Red onion
  7. Spinach
  8. Coriander
  9. Turmeric
  10. Cumin
  11. Salt and pepper to taste
  12. Primal Palate Super Gyro seasoning (substitute dried oregano, thyme, and garlic powder)

How to prepare burgers:

Depending on timing, I like to start by sautéing my onions, sun dried tomatoes, cilantro, and red bell peppers in a pan for 5-7 minutes. Then add in your chopped spinach and cook until wilted (about 2 minutes). Let the veggies cool completely and then add to your ground meat with seasonings. And I mix it all up with my hands and form into about 12 patties.But if you are in a time crunch, just add everything to a bowl, and mix.

Cooking in grill pan instructions:

I heat a grill pan with some oil, add my patties to the pan,  and cook a few minutes each side. And during the week when I need to reheat I simply add to my convection oven on 300 F and cook for about 10-12 minutes or until warmed through.

Prepping in air fryer instructions:

But my favorite way to prep these Mediterranean burgers is in my air fryer. And if you have one, I suggest you make them using this version. I simply add the burgers to my greased air fryer pan and cook 370  for 12 minute. And during the week when I need to reheat I either reheat a few minutes in my air fryer or in my convection oven as listed above.

How to enjoy these burgers:

The possibilities are endless when it comes to repurposing these burgers in a variety of meals for the week. But one of my favorite ways to enjoy is by making a burger bowl salad. But you could make regular burgers, sliders using sweet potatoes as the “bun,” or even crumble it up over some pasta.
