This is a favorite at home! This is made using regular ground chicken. If using lean ground chicken or turkey, add an egg or two for moisture.

My husband always complains when I "fiddle" with a recipe before trying it, so I followed this one exactly. Sorry but if I make this again I'll be "fiddling". The texture and consistency were fine when using ground chicken, but I thought it lacked in the flavour department (I used Bullseye BBQ sauce). If I make them again I think I'd add sage or tarragon and more garlic.

These were really easy and a good way to use up leftover rice. I used turkey and added one egg. I got 6 patties. I might add a bit more BBQ sauce next time. I just got my large Forman grill, and these worked great on it. Made for Fall 2007 PAC.

Yummy! I went to our supermarket but they were out of ground chicken. So I grounded some chicken breast but I think I should of grounded chicken thighs as burgers were a little dry. However the flavour was really yummy and I like the fact they were healthy. Thank you LambieCooks
