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.

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

    • I would use the whole egg and add additional almond flour

  • 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.

    • Wow! Thank you so much.

  • 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?

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

  • My family loved these! Thank you!

    • So happy to hear. Thank you

  • I used regular flour instead of almond flour. These are amazing and can use in so many different ways. Your recipes are amazing!!

    • Thank you Steph!

  • The are amazing! Easy to make and perfect for leftovers/meal prep!

    • So happy to hear this. Thank you

  • Such a great recipe! My family, including my 2 year old, loved them!!

    Just as a side note – I don’t think the instructions have when to add the almond flour. Just wanted to let you know!

    • Thank you so much. I will be sure to add.

  • These are so good. I meal prepped them this weekend for my lunches at work and my son decided to eat a few of them today. Guess I will have to make more!! Definitely going to be made often in my house.

  • Trying tonight with raw spinach…..not sure if it was supposed to be cooked or from frozen? Kinda thinking bot since it didnt say to. Can you clarify for me thanks.

    • I always use fresh!

  • Is the serving size for 1 large patty (makes 8) or a small (makes 12)? Also, do you use regular feta or reduced fat? Thanks!

    • One large Patty. And I use regular feta

  • If I wanted to cut this recipe in half to only make 4 patties would I be ok to do everything the same and just use 1lb ground chicken?

  • Such a quick a tasty meal! Now I have enough to meal prep for the week!

  • My family loves these! Do you think they can be cooked in the oven instead of stovetop??

  • OMG! This was delish!!! New favorite meal prep protein ! I forgot to weigh it all out but I did the best to make even portions . Sooo soo good !

    • Yay. So happy to hear. Thank you for the love

  • 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!!

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

  • Can you substitute feta with a different type of cheese ?

    • Absolutley!

  • 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 ?

    • Absolutley. That would for sure work!

  • These turned out great snd I will definitely make again!
