It's All Greek to Me Chicken Burger

Greek Lemon-Feta Chicken Burger
Greece is one of my favorite places on the planet.  I love all things Greek-- Food. Dancing. Culture. Movies. It's all good in my book.  This little burger adds all of the fun flavors found in Greek cuisine...lots of citris, oregano, and of course FETA CHEESE!

Lemons are good for pucker up! No, just kidding...

On a serious note, here's some cool facts about lemons:

1) They fight infection (they help produce white blood cells and antibodies)
2) Studies show that they act as an anti-carcinogenic, lowering rates of colon, prostate, & breast cancer
3) Makes your skin glow!
4) Lowers blood presure & increases levels of HDL (good cholesterol)

1/4 lbs ground, extra lean chicken breast
juice of 1/2 lemon
zest of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp italian seasoning
garlic (about 1 clove, minced)
pepper (and salt, if desired)
1 1/2 T reduced fat feta cheese
1 light wheat bun
1 tsp olive oil
canola cooking spray, aluminum foil
assorted fixins'

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix chicken, lemon, lemon zest, spices, garlic together in a bowl.

Add olive oil & feta cheese.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray with canola cooking spray. Place burger on baking sheet. 

Bake 25-30 minutes.  (You can grill these, if you wish!)

In the last few minutes of cooking, place bun on tray to lightly toast.

Assemble burger with all of your favorite fixins & enjoy!
