If you are looking for a lemon tarragon chicken recipe, try these easy low carb burgers. A simple burger with a well balanced flavour that can be enjoyed with or without a low carb burger bun.
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 ground chicken 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!
Chicken burger tips
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.
What to serve these lemon tarragon chicken burgers with
This recipe finishes cooking the chicken burger in a lemon sauce which is poured over the burgers to serve. You could opt to serve the lemon sauce on the side, add it to mayonnaise for a dip or sauce with the burger.
Serve them inside a low carb burger bun or just as they are with a salad and a side of coleslaw. The Feta Lemon Coleslaw makes a particularly great side dish with these chicken burgers.
