Loved the fresh combo of lemon and dill and used Recipe #39350 to lower calories and fat. Love these patties served on the orzo for a light summer supper. Served with a side of Recipe #344305 with fresh made Recipe #301695. Thanks for posting Sharon. Made for When It's Hot Tag Game.

Okay, don't laugh... I had over-defrosted my ground chicken and it got partially cooked. Enough that I wasn't going to be able to make patties out of it. Well this was what was on the menu for dinner, so I sort of made it anyway! LOL. I omitted the breadcrumbs and cooked the chicken in a skillet with all of the patty ingredients. I cooked the orzo seperately, but combined everything together (like a one-dish meal) to serve. I'll make this again the right way!!

This made a very tasty light dinner for me. The fresh lemon and fresh dill are a perfect combination. Ground chicken wasn't available anywhere I went, so I used ground turkey. These aren't juicy burgers, of course, being poultry, but I enjoyed the texture and flavor as well as the accompanying orzo.
