yummy! ground chicken is probably one of the nastiest things to handle... before it is cooked. It is kind of hard to keep the burgers together but as long as you form somewhat of a patty and get it into the pan you will be fine (you can reshape as you go). Also, be sure not to overcook these guys. Like all overcooked chicken, they will be dry and not as flavorful. I just check the middle after a few minutes on each side when the meat looks cooked, it usually doesn't take much longer. I also added chopped jalapenos to the burger mixture, so good!

This was my first time cooking ground chicken. After I added all of my ingredients together it wouldn't hold together. Then I added egg and bread crumbs to help it hold together and it became VERY sticky. MY husband didn't attempt to grill them b/c he figured they would fall through the grill. I panfried them (4 min on one side was too long). 4 min on one side and 3 on the other. I was the only one who liked them. I think if you put a little salsa on the bun it would be even better. But, really? What did I do wrong?

It was good but not great. Hint; resist the urge to try to bind the meat with egg or breadcrumbs. Actually resist the urge to touch it at all....treat the burger like cookie dough and use a spoon when time to fry just drop a large dallop into pan, it will stick together.

Served this to my son-in-law who doesn't like much of anything, and he said "This is good." Very high praise from him.

Good recipe!! I substituted fresh garlic & ginger as it give a better flavour. Garlic powder tends to smell nasty & strong. Also, I used more chopped Cilantro. Very good!

Made this last night and my husband LOVED it! He said, "Honey, I am so lucky to have you as my wife!"...needless to say, this is an excellent recipe :) I added chopped jalepenos and a dash of cumin. We aren't "bun" people so we ate them breadless with slices of avocado and topped with dressing: For the dressing I mixed a hidden valley ranch packet into plain yogurt and added diced onion, lime zest, and fresh cilantro. The tartness from the yogurt gives it an AWESOME flavor. You will not regret making this recipe!

I had avocado and cilantro in my fridge... Goggled and this is the recipe I got. YUMMY!! The avocado gives it the right texture And the ranch makes it a perfect blend. I followed the recipe exactly! Not bad health wise either... Only 7 weight watcher plus points! (okay add the bun and it was 10 but you could substitute something else for the bun!!) Definitely recommend!

We were split on this tonight - half of us really loved it and half it was ok. I followed the recipe except cut the garlic in half. Definitely recommend making ahead and letting rest in the refrigerator to allow flavors to blend and for burgers to set (so they handle easier). Have been requested again but only in smaller slider form.
