Ground Chicken Recipes
Just as versatile and delicious as ground beef or turkey, ground chicken stars in our delicious chicken bolognese sauce and chicken-and-broccoli meatloaf, among other weeknight dinner recipes. It’s lighter in taste than other ground meat and has less fat and calories, so it’s a healthier option but still easy to use and economical too. Use ground chicken where it’s more delicate flavor shines -- in kebabs, burgers, and meatballs. Also to avoid getting into a ground beef rut, use ground chicken instead of other ground meat in your favorite recipes, but first try our selection of recipes developed especially to let ground chicken shine.
