Pretty tasty. Used all ground chicken breast since my store was out of the mix. Love all the fresh ingredients as well. I added an extra clove of garlic beyond the 4 instructed and it was too much - oops. So stick to the recipe there! Grilled nice, very sticky though to shape, so I'd suggest using damp hands next time. Overall a repeat as long as hubby likes when he tries later.

Tasty burgers. I added extra garlic thinking my 4 cloves were a little small - it ended up being too much so follow the recipe there! Sprinkled a little shredded Asiago on top for a splurge. Very sticky/too sticky to shape into patties but I worked it out. I suggest using damp hands to shape, as raw ground chicken, and turkey actually, are very sticky. I did use all 99% fat free ground chicken here, but with all the other ingredients flavoring it up, I didn't miss the light/dark mix, which my store was out of. I would more than likely repeat, especially if my husband likes them, but he'll be eating later!

Can you bake these?

Hi there! Yes, you can bake them at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

I love this recipe! The burgers came out great! They are juicy and full of flavor, and something simple to throw together after a long day at work. YUM!

A family member has just been diagnosed as borderline diabetic, they are going to be visiting me soon, can I use ground turkey instead of chicken?

Yes, you can certainly use ground turkey instead of ground chicken. Enjoy!
