In a bowl, add the turkey, Panko, garlic, oregano, basil, 1/2 tsp salt, and egg. Using your hands, mix until combined. Split into four equal portions and form into patties.

You’ll need a skillet that has a lid. Place it over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Allow to get hot but not smoking. Cook the patties for about 3 minutes, or until browned. Turn over and cook for another three minutes. Add the chicken broth to the pan, cover and allow to steam for about 10 minutes or until the internal temperature of the patties reaches 165 degreed. Remove from pan and allow to drain on a stack of 3-4 paper towels.

In a bowl, add the artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, feta, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Lightly toast the English muffins.

Spread the English Muffins with 1/2 tbs Fat Free Sour Cream on each side.

Place the turkey patties on the English muffins, add the artichoke/red pepper mixture.

Enjoy this light lunch or dinner!
