The Canuck Cluck Grilled Chicken Burger

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Serves: 4

This chicken burger was inspired by the flavours and ingredients in Greek salad. The more adventurous types can add black olives and green pepper. The red and white in the tomatoes, red onion, and feta cheese make this a colourful, patriotic Canada Day meal.


2 boneless, skinless chicken breast(s)
2 tbsp (30 mL) extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp (30 mL) balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp (5 mL) oregano, dried

1 In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, green onion, oregano, salt and pepper.
2 Add chicken breasts; turn to coat.
3 Let stand for 10 minutes or cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.
4 Place chicken on greased grill over medium heat.
