Directions

Cut off a third of each pita and set the pita pockets aside.

Grate the small pita pieces on the fine side of grater, or pulse in food processor, to make 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.

In a large bowl, mix the crumbs, chicken, feta, 1/4 cup mint, salt, pepper and egg until just combined. Shape the mixture into 8 small 3/4-inch-thick burgers.

Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the yogurt and remaining 1/2 cup mint. To serve, fill each pita with some lettuce, tomatoes, 2 burgers and some yogurt sauce.

Make it a Drop 5 Meal by adding: 1/2 cup frozen sweet potato fries, baked. 500 complete meal calories.

    These were a hit in our house. I added some finely chopped onion, minced garlic and a couple of shakes of Mrs. Dash (garlic & herb) to add additional flavor. Will definitely make these again.

    These Greek Chicken Burgers were so bland. I followed the recipe exactly and they had absolutely no taste. I ended up throwing them out, all I did was waste my ingredients.

    These burgers were very tasty and so easy to put together. I added some diced onion along to my burger mix for some more flavor, and these turned out excellent. I started them on the stove in a non-stick pan, but ended up finishing them in a 400 degree oven. I think I went overboard on the mint, but still very good!!
