Love this recipe!!! Have made it many times, and always with a little tweak...something I seldom do, but it works for me with this dish. For the bread crumbs, I use dry chicken stuffing mix (which I grind down in my food processor). I always omit the water and usually add just a wee bit more of the stuffing as the chicken tends to be quite moist. I serve this bad boy on a toasted bun with only a dollop of lingonberry sauce on top (yeah, the stuff you eat with swedish meatballs). For me, this is the clencher and makes me crave this sandwich even more. I just love it. I am sure it would probably go well with cranberry sauce, too, but I can never bring myself to try because I love the lingonberry so much! This has pretty much replaced regular hamburgers in my household...and I couldn't be happier! Thank you.
This is tasty, but I thought it wasn't worth all the effort. I had some trouble with it being too moist and had to keep adding breadcrumbs (and then cheese when I ran out of breadcrumbs) and it still never got firm enough for me to trust putting the patties on the grill. I could just see the grill going right through them, so I fried them... and the cheese stuck to the pan, darn it. They looked like a disaster by the time I got them to the table. Admittedly, my husband thought they were delicious, but he wasn't the one that had to deal with the pan... You know, maybe the ground chicken I got was just juicier than most? I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt with 3 stars.
HM! I guess my review of these never went through! I've made these twice now, once with ground turkey and once with ground chicken, and both times they tasted fabulous :-) I love the addition of the dijon mustard and parm. cheese :-) Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!! I'll be making these regularly :-)
