Chicken, Lemon and Tarragon Burgers

Every now and again the Chief Taster gets a treat and I will cook him meat.  This week’s treat was a chicken burger.  It was very easy to make and he enjoyed the flavours.

  He declared them moist and tasty.  I used chicken breasts but you could use chicken mince instead.   It is as easy as throwing everything into a blender, press a button, them make some burger shapes.  Cook and voila! A happy husband!

I’ve tested this with both dried and fresh tarragon and the Chief Taster gave the thumbs up to both.   A bit of the lemon juice is added to the pan after cooking the burgers.  If you want to grill or bbq your burgers, just sprinkle on the lemon juice directly.
