Chicken and Feta Burger with Greens and Caramelised Onions

INSANELY GOOD.  This really is a burger you want to try… trust me.. you’ll make it once, and it will become one of your favorites. It’s a regular meal for us and always loved by the whole family.  We eat them most often without the brioche bun, just a salad or veggies on the side, and lashings of Sriracha chili sauce.  It makes a great alternative to the beef burger and also has a ton of hidden veggies!

The secret to the moistest, most succulent burger is mincing the chicken yourself and using a mix of both thigh and breast meat.  The salty feta and slivered sweet fried onions with the charred sesame seed crusting give this burger so much flavor.
