Recipe Notes

If you don't have ground chicken on hand, you can slice boneless skinless chicken breast into slices, partially freeze it (20 to 30 minutes in the freezer should do it), then pulse in the food processor until you reach desired texture.

If you don't like or have chicken on hand, you can also make this recipe with ground turkey.
