My favorite thing to do with ground turkey/chicken is make taco salads! Chop up and onion and fry it with the meat. When cooked, season well (or use a taco packet) and drain if needed.
Then, make a salad with your favorite ingredients. Any vbeggies can go here...I like to use a variety of lettuce, purple cabbage, shredded carrot, colorful peppers, black olives, cucumbers, black beans, broccoli, even corn! Top with warm meat, and dress with a mixture of salsa and lowfat sour cream.
You can even top with extras, like crushed tortilla chips, cheese, hot sauce...you name it!

Anything that you can do with turkey you can do with chicken!
On Wednesday I bought a hot cooked chicken for dinner. We had it Wed. and Thurs. night and I had it yesterday on my sandwich for lunch too (with avocado, tomato and lettuce.) Today I diced onions, red and green capsicums, and celery, added a can of tomatoes, and couple cloves of garlic, and copped up a handful of the very tasty dried apricots and a few Turkish dessert apricots (they don't break down), plus a heap of lentils. That made such a yummy casserole with the rest of the shredded chicken - we had that tonight and the rest was containerized into single serve containers and is now in the freezer. That one small chook has made 15 single-serve meals for us :-)

How bout making some chili with it? I don't mind using ground turkey or in your case chicken when it comes to dishes that have a lot of flavorings, like chili, or tacos. I picked up chicken chourico and made Kale soup with it instead of the beef...I actually like it better. But when it comes to burgers I want beef or no burger at all.

Anything you would make out of ground turkey you could make out of ground chicken. Not a hugh difference.

You can use it in the same way you'd use any other ground meat. Just be careful not to over cook (or add some moisture) or it will get dry.

You could definitely make a burger out of it. I think you could make anything you'd use ground turkey for, like burgers, meatballs, meatloaf, tacos etc.
I also saved this recipe a couple weeks ago that uses ground chicken. I have not built it in the recipe builder or made it yet, so I don't know the nutritional value, and by looking at it I think you could lighten it up by using lower fat milk and lower fat/less cheese, and by baking them in the oven on a rack on a cooking sheet versus frying and by using less/no pasta. traceysculinaryadventures.blogspot.com/201 2/10/cheesy-chicken-parm-meatballs.htm l#

I went shopping the other day and instead of picking up ground turkey I accidentally picked up ground chicken. I have never cooked with it and dont know what to do with it. I was wondering if I couldnt make a "BURGER" out of it. Any suggestions?
