Instructions

  1. Prepare the Tzatziki by combining all ingredients. Mix well and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, ½ cup of crumbled feta, minced red onion, minced garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. Divide the mixture into equal portions, shaping each into 1/2-inch thick burgers.
  3. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Spray the grill pan with cooking spray. Add the burgers to the pan, cook 3-4 minutes, flip, and cook an additional 3-4 minutes until the burgers are cooked through completely.
  4. Cut a strip off of each pita to create a pocket. Place one burger into each pita pocket. Top each with cucumber, red onion, avocado, grape tomatoes, and the remaining crumbled feta cheese. Drizzle each with Tzatziki. Serve.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with Mediterranean Pasta Salad with Artichokes and Avocado.
