Mesquite Mediterranean Ground Chicken Burgers

I love the Mediterranean flavors of Cilantro and Feta Cheese.   These burgers are super moist by adding the cilantro, feta cheese and scallions right into the ground chicken mixture.  These are super great tasting, healthy and guilt free. The crisp crunch of the fresh cucumber is a nice asset.

2 lbs ground chicken
1/2 cup cilantro, fresh chopped
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
4 ozs Feta cheese, cubed
salt and pepper, to taste
6 slices red onion
6 slices fresh red tomatoes
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 cucumber, sliced
1/2 cup banana peppers
1/2 cup roasted red bell  peppers
6 Tbs mayonnaise
6 sesame seed hamburger buns.

In a bowl combine ground chicken, cilantro, scallions and feta cheese, add salt and pepper, to taste.  Mix well.  Mold into 6 individual patties.  Grill on mesquite flavored charcoal grill. (or mesquite flavored gas grill).

Place bottom part of buns on platter.  Place a grilled patty on top of each bottom bun. On top of each patty add, onion, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, banana peppers, roasted bell peppers and mayonnaise.  Add top bun to each burger.  Enjoy!!!

Make sure to season mixture before grilling patties.  Mixture can be made ahead of time and refrigerated to marinade flavors.
