Quinoa Chicken Burgers
Health Highlights


454 gm Chicken, ground, lean
1 1/2 cup Quinoa, cooked
1/4 cup, crumbled Goat feta cheese
1/2 cup Basil pesto (Kale, Hemp & Artichoke Pesto (from Meals that Matter))


In a large bowl, add cooked quinoa and feta to the ground chicken. Using your hands, thoroughly combine the ingredients. Using a ½ cup measuring cup, scoop the burger mixture into circular flat “patties”.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the coconut oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Place 3- 4 burger patties in the pan, gently lifting them to avoid sticking. Cook for 5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.


Add 1/2 cup of homemade kale, artichoke & hemp pesto to the ground chicken mixture. It adds great flavour!

Serve burgers on a cabbage leaf “bun" or on a bed of mixed greens. Top with sliced avocado, remaining, homemade pesto, plain Greek yogurt or your favourite burger toppings!
