Ingredients

  • Four 6-inch pita pockets
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 ounces low-fat plain yogurt
  • 4 cups romaine or iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced
  • 3 plum tomatoes, sliced

Directions

Cut off a third of each pita and set the pita pockets aside.

Grate the small pita pieces on the fine side of grater, or pulse in food processor, to make 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.

In a large bowl, mix the crumbs, chicken, feta, 1/4 cup mint, salt, pepper and egg until just combined. Shape the mixture into 8 small 3/4-inch-thick burgers.

Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the yogurt and remaining 1/2 cup mint. To serve, fill each pita with some lettuce, tomatoes, 2 burgers and some yogurt sauce.
