My husband and I enjoy grilled turkey burgers. I have discovered that I actually prefer them over a hamburger! I hadn’t thought of making chicken burgers until I came across this recipe at Annie’s Eats. She has a great site with fabulous recipes – check it out! This is the 2nd recipe I’ve tried from her site that has been wonderful! Thanks Annie, for giving me my favorite new burger!! I changed it slightly by adding the juice of a lime and put the chicken breasts through my meat grinder instead of using the food processor. I love the taste produced by the grill, so I took these to the grill and I wasn’t disappointed! Either way, you’re in for a treat with these burgers! An added bonus is that they freeze well for a quick weeknight dinner.
