Recently, I have been making a double batch of these Feta and Spinach Chicken Patties on Sunday and using for meal prep during the week and freezing the rest of easy meals later in the month. I am amazed by how well they store in the fridge. In my opinion, I think they taste better after sitting a few days. I will simply heat up in the microwave, skillet or add to the air fryer for 2-3 minutes.

Feta isn’t something that I incorporate into my diet that often, but every now and then it just hits the spot. I usually get really upset stomachs if I have dairy, but these patties don’t seem to throw me off track. However, if you can’t have dairy, try subbing your favorite dairy free cheese.

  1. Bri says:

    Yummy!!! If I only use 1 lb of chicken, would you suggest to only do an egg white? Or still the whole egg?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I would use the whole egg and add additional almond flour

  2. Tiffany Warriner says:

    A huge hit for the family dinner! We just had a side salad and vegetable and made the Awesome Sauce as a condiment. I needed another way to do chicken and this was simple, tasty and love the versatility of the patties. I look forward to making this again. Thank you for another great recipe.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Wow! Thank you so much.

  3. Lizi says:

    Can I use regular flour instead of almond if we’re not a GF family? If the almond is for flavor as well, would you recommend adding almond extract (with regular flour) in lieu of almond flour?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I would probably use Panko bread Crumbs instead of regular flour.

      I always use fresh!

  14. Alli Garrett says:

      One large Patty. And I use regular feta

    I LOVE this recipe. I have been making a batch every week for the past 3 months & I haven’t tired of it. I love them fresh but also freeze batches & defrost 2 at a time for lunch. Usually dip in a cucumber dill taziki sauce I buy at Publix. This is helping me get enough protein for the day. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe!!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This is SO awesome to hear. Thank you and so happy you love it

  21. sherri mecum says:

    Can you substitute feta with a different type of cheese ?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:


  22. Shelby says:

    This has become a weeknight staple in my house. I add balsamic drizzle and it’s a knockout every time!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Hi Shelby,

      I am so happy when a recipe makes the rotation family favorite list. Thanks so much for the kind words of support.

  23. Rachel Newton says:

    Omg. So good.. I have never used ground chicken. I was nervous about it . But it was delicious. I used regular flour and seared the chicken patties . And finished in my convection oven for 5 minutes to cook the middle .I served over couscous. With broccoli!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      YUM…….Thrilled you loved the recipe Rachel. Thank you for the kind words of support.

  24. Colleen says:

    I’m assuming the almond flour helps give the burgers a shape. If I don’t have almond flour, is flax seed meal a decent substitution ?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Absolutley. That would for sure work!

  25. Ashley Simmons says:

    These turned out great snd I will definitely make again!

  26. Jane says:

    We love this recipe! Do you think these could also be baked in the oven? If so, for how long and what temp?

      Sure, try baking at 350 for about 20 to 25 mins or until internal temp. is 160 degrees. Thanks Jane!!!

  27. Sonya says:

    I made a double recipe of this the other night and I’m obsessed! I will definitely be adding this to my family’s meal rotation. Thank you so much!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      So happy to hear! Thank you Sonya 😉

  28. Hi, I always choose to eat delectable and nutritious foods. When I read the post, I realize it’s the food item I’ve been missing for a long time. Furthermore, your article will be very useful to many individuals, including myself, who are always looking for healthy food recipes.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you Mena for your kind words. Thrilled this helped.

  29. Emily C says:

    These were so delicious! I had to combine 1/2 ground chicken and 1/2 ground turkey since I didn’t have two of chicken, and it all went so well together. My husband (who is the critic of the table 😉 said they were really good and wanted more.
    I doubled the garlic (I love garlic powder!), and added more salt, but otherwise kept it exactly as the recipe stated. I made 20 balls with it all, which was nice to have leftovers. I’ll definitely make these again.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      YAY Emily!!!!! Love your feedback. This is why I love being in the kitchen. Helping followers make easy delicious meals for all the tastebuds in the family is my joy. Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to give me feedback!!!

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
