I flippin’ love zucchini. Love it. Love it. Love it. I love the taste. I love how versatile it is (savory? sweet? whatever!). I even love cutting into it—so smooth and easy.
This here zucchini came from a farm stand down the road, and I knew exactly where it was headed—into zucchini chicken burgers. I’ve had this idea for a few months now for a zucchini-loaded burger. Zucchini is tasty, but it is also an incredible way to add moisture to foods. That’s why it works so well in zucchini bread!
I had this idea that you could maybe mix shredded zucchini with a leaner meat (like ground chicken or ground turkey breast) to add back in some moisture. And, oh my, I was so right. It’s juicy, flavorful, and super tasty. Cha-ching!
I topped my burgers with a lemon-feta mayo, some homegrown tomato slices, and a big ole piece of red onion (also from the garden). You can feel free to dress your burgs however makes you happy, but I highly recommend trying out the mayo—I’ve included the recipe below—it’s kinda insane. Enjoy.

oh. em. gee. this was one of the best chicken burgers I’ve ever had! the feta and lemon complement each other so wonderfully! I used greek yogurt instead of mayo and it was perfect. (I use aldi’s greek yogurt and it’s not as tangy as oikos or fage). I didn’t have whole wheat panko but the regular worked fine . This is just for me but I made a whole pound anyway and will make extras to freeze. I will be eating this often. I topped the burger w/ avocado and red onion as well.
