Ready In:




  • Heat 1 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic; cook until tender and soft, about 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile , combine chicken, parsley, tarragon, thyme, salt and pepper in mixing bowl.
  • Blend onion mixture with chicken mixture.
  • Form into 4 patties; dust with flour.
  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in clean skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook until patties are browned on both sides, no pink remains in center and juices run clear.
  • Note* if ground chicken is unavailable in your area, you can easily grind the chicken in a food processor. Just remember that it doesn't take more than a few pulses to grind the chicken. Too much pulsing will turn it into pate! LOL!

  1. Yummy yummy yummy!! I used ground turkey. Why is it that ground turkey is so readily available and chicken isn't? Weird. Anyway, these are fabulous! I served them topped with swiss cheese on multi-grain buns. I can only imagine how good these would be with fresh herbs. YUMMERS! Thanks for sharing. This one's a keeper. :)
  2. another great recipe from this chef! made these today after buying some organic ground chicken on sale. followed recipe exactly as written except omitted the pepper as a request by my 3 yr old daughter. she and i loved it. recipe is easy, inexpensive and very delicious. may have to try to see if i can make these and then freeze them to keep on hand for her and i. we ate them without any rolls as they were good enough and had a side of organic fries baked with sea salt. thanks again for another great recipe!
  3. I found these extremely disappointing. They were rather tasteless and certainly need some more flavour.


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with Food.com since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
