Caramelized Onion, Feta, and Blue Cheese Chicken Burgers

Summer Time = Burger Time. 

I had some fat blueberries in my fridge and thought they would add an interesting element to the chicken burgers I was planning on making. As usual, I wanted to keep them SIMPLE. 

The blueberries add a pop of sweet flavor and almost act like a condiment for the burger (instead of ketchup). Don't knock it till you try it!!

Caramelized Onion, Feta, and Blueberry Chicken Burger


1 small onion, thinly sliced 
1/2 packet stevia
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar 
1 lb ground chicken breast
1/3 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup blueberries 
Salt and pepper to taste 


1. Spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray and heat over medium high heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the stevia and balsamic. Cook until the balsamic starts to reduce (abut 1-2 minutes). Set aside and allow to cool. 

2. In a large bowl, mix the chicken, feta, onions, salt and pepper. Fold in the blueberries. Form into 4-6 patties. Cook on a hot skillet sprayed with cooking spray (about 5-6 minutes per side depending on how thick they are).
