Expert Tips

If desired, add 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger to the chicken mixture before shaping the patties.

Lean ground chicken is a tasty, healthy meat choice. Cook the patties until they are fully cooked (to 165°F on a meat thermometer), but don’t overcook, as they dry out easily. Do not press the patties while cooking.
