I seem to recall a cute little saying in elementary school, “April showers bring May flowers!”
Was that just a way to make children growing up in Syracuse, NY feel better about the fact that even once it stops snowing, the weather is still going to be crappy for a few more weeks?
Is there a catchy rhyme for Baltimore children (and adults) when it rains every day in May?
I wanted to make a light and healthy burger to put me in summer grilling mood. I considered making these chicken meatballs or even a chicken meatloaf, but no. Gotta get the grill marks.
Of course, I used a grill pan on the stove and not the actual grill because again, it’s raining.
Mediterranean Chicken Burgers
1 lb ground chicken
1/4 cup crumbled feta
1/2 cup chopped spinach
2-3 grilled marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
plain Greek yogurt and chopped chives, for topping (optional)
Combine everything until just combined. You don’t want to overwork the meat.
Form into 4 patties with a slight indentation in the center. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side until completely cooked through. No such thing as “medium rare” when we’re playing with chicken.
You can even swap out the chicken out for turkey, or lamb!
Damn, I should have used lamb.
There’s my rhyme!
