This was a great change from beef. I was pleasantly surprised on the flavor of this burger because in past experiences, chicken or turkey burgers can lack in flavor. This one is the exception! The flavor of the herbs, pepperoni, and lemon in both the burgers, and mayonnaise added to a successful burger. I followed the recipe exactly except that I used ground turkey (ground turkey was on sale at my local market). Made it for Everyday is a Holiday. Thank you LoriMama for posting a winner of a chicken burger!
