|Greek Inspired Chicken Burger|
The breast is marinated in a combination of oil and oregano, grilled to perfection and then topped with tzatziki and a mixture of tomatoes, feta and red onion. Here is Ivy's own recipe for tzatziki as well to add that extra bit of authentic touch.

4 chicken breasts, slightly pounded to same thickness
1/2 cup (125 ml) olive or canola oil
2 tsp (10 ml) dried oregano
2 tsp (10 ml) red wine vinegar
