Mediterranean Chicken & Mushroom Burger Bowl.

FD42898D-6047-4227-8FCD-FF405478EE65Not only is adding mushrooms to your burger blend delicious, it provides a ton of moisture to what could be a drier protein, like ground chicken breast. Adding mushrooms is a great way to cut back on meat consumption for the summer, and still having that delicious cook out meal.  I love to add mushrooms and herbs to burger blends for a bowl. Pair these burgers with my favorite summer cucumber salad and you’ll have a new cook-out favorite.

Directions
1. In a blender, add mushrooms, egg, herbs, and salt. Pulse until mushrooms are broken down. Add mixture to ground chicken, and crumble feta. Combine, and form into 6 burger patties.
2. Preheat char-griller to high, and spray some cooking spray on the grates. Grill each burger for 4 minutes per side, until cooked through.
3. While burgers are cooking, make the cucumber salad. Cut cucumbers and tomatoes, chop the herbs, and mix with feta, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
4. Build your burger bowl! Fill a bowl with greens, a big serving of cucumber salad, and a chicken mushroom burger on top. Enjoy!
