This juicy chicken burger is spiked with chives, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard to help build flavor right into the patty.

Made these burgers to take to a friend's family. She has cancer and is unable to cook. Our company has a volunteer garden, so I cut thyme, rosemary, and chives to add into the mix. Used dry bread crumbs because all I had on hand and added an egg as binder. They seemed to hold together well when I pattied will keep super cold until grill time. All the "extras" came from the farmers market except buns...I made ciabatta rolls to hold in the goodness.

These were delicious and easy to make--And they tasted a lot better than a turkey burger! We used gruyere instead of fontina cheese, and it was delicious. Do NOT make the baked potato poppers that are featured on the same episode--We made them and they were awful!
