For a while now, I’ve been swapping ground chicken for ground beef in my meatballs, meat sauce, and other ground beef-based recipes, and I found that my family prefers the milder taste and juicier texture of chicken. This new burger variety went over so well that my son insisted I don’t ever go back to beef burgers. I hope your family enjoys it too!

Yields 10-12 burgers


Chicken-Pastrami Burgers

  • 1 cup bread crumbs

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • black pepper, to taste



Defrost the onion and parsley cubes in a large bowl and combine with remaining ingredients.


Form chicken mixture into patties.


Grill on a pan for about five minutes per side, or alternatively, broil in the oven.


Enjoy with your favorite condiments.


The chicken mixture is looser and stickier than beef, so wet your hands before forming the patties.

If you have time to form the patties and then refrigerate for about an hour before grilling, they will be easier to handle.

Good morning
Can I use this recipe to make cooked chicken ball and what would happen if I use 2 eggs instead of zucchini as my husband really does not like it and I never use it not even hidden in recipes, I did once and felt very guilty so I don’t do it as I know that he does not like it. I would use matzoh meal instead of flour, would it still work.
Thank you very much for the daily recipes

Matzo meal instead of bread crumbs, I assume you mean? I would think that would work. In terms of the zucchini, you can skip it and add egg, and even sub a different vegetable if you prefer.
