Amazing Chicken Burger

Amazing Chicken Burgers are so good! A tasty, economical dinner for one, two or more! All you need is some home-canned chicken. You can also use commercially canned chicken if you’re not a canner. But it is so much less expensive to use good old Ugly Chicken.

These chicken burgers, made from our home-canned chicken are a favorite around this place. Quick, easy, adaptable! Who could ask for more?

You can create your own “special sauce” or try the sauce recipe below.
