Outstandingly simple but delicious thanks Bergy. These were a real family pleaser. I had no tarragon, and I don't like chervil so much, so I took the liberty of exchanging those for mint and lemon thyme. Pretty successful exchange;-) Must say, the reduced wine and lemon juice to finish is the added secret to these burgers.

These were wonderful, Bergy. Kind of like little chicken meatloaf patties. The lemon wine sauce gave an incredible flavor to the burgers and made them extra-special. Used a unique spice combination that worked very well. The burgers were tender and juicy with not much fat. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
