Low carb recipe for Greek Open Chicken Burgers with homemade Tzatziki

Ingredients

Tzatziki Sauce:
1/2 cucumber, peeled seeded, finely grated and strained.
2 Garlic gloves minced
1 Cup Greek yogurt
1 tsp Lemon zest
1 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp Fresh chopped dill (or 1 Tbsp dry dill)
+- 5 mint leaves finely chopped (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper and salt for seasoning

Chicken Patties:
600 g Chicken breast (No skin, no bones)
5 ml Salt
a handful of chopped spring onions
1 / 4 cup oatbran *see tips
1 egg white
1 small onion finely chopped
a dash of white pepper

Complete the meal:
1 x head of Lettuce of your choice
2 – 3 Ripe tomatoes sliced
+- 4-6 Olives of your choice per person
Sliced cucumber
Feta Cheese chunks

How to

Tzatziki Sauce:
Mix all your ingredients together and let it chill in the fridge.

Use any left over Tzatziki sauce within 2 days.

Chicken Patties:
Use a food processor for the chicken patties.

Cut your chicken breasts in smaller chunks and mince it up in a food processor.

Transfer the meat to a large bowl and mix in the rest of the ingredients.

Your meat mixture is a sticky story so make sure you have a bowl of clean water next to you to dip your hands in. Wet your hands and form golf ball size chicken meatballs. Shape into patties and rest on a layer of cling wrap or a silicon mat.

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry your patties on both sides until golden brown and cooked through.

Complete the meal:
Place all your vegetables on your place, add your chicken patties, feta cheese and olives and dress it up with some Tzatziki sauce.

Tips:
No need to buy oatbran! Whiz up rolled oats in your food processor for a minute or two and store in an airtight container. Replace your breadcrumbs in your Meatloaf, Meatballs or Bobotie with oatbran as a healthy alternative.

LCHF, Banting, keto or Paleo diet? No need for the oatbran but do ommit the egg white from the recipes or else you will sit with a sticky meat mixture.

Tzatziki goes well with any meat! Add it as a spread for pita breads, a tangy dip for raw veggie sticks or simply as a salad dressing.
