I bought a pound of Perdue ground chicken tonight because A.) they had it and B.) it was $3.50.

Now what do I do with it?

Mix with half ground veggies and make into a meatloaf or burgers.  I usually use ground turkey, and puree onions, carrots, celery, peppers, squeeze out the excess liquid, mix with a little tomato sauce (1-2 T), and add some seasonings like smoked paprika, sage, or something like that, salt and pepper.  I use almond flour as well to absorb some of the moisture.  Bake in a loaf pan until cooked.  Everyone loves it.

Bolognese.  Seriously... chicken and turkey is pretty flavorless, so when it ends up in a sauce that is heavily flavored, it shines as a protein.  

My wife has a bolognese recipe from Ina Garten that I could probably eat 3 times a week and never get tired of it.  She's made it with beef, turkey and that new plant based protein stuff.  Every time... texture and flavor is great.

Ground poultry just doesn't seem right. That said, circumstances may dictate.

Ground turkey is fine. Ground chicken is gross.

I agree that ground chicken is grosser but ground turkey isn't right, either. I'd go with eggs, tofu, beans, cottage cheese, etc as a protein source over either in a heartbeat.

If it goes through the Cuisinart, he might be able to get close to the chick fil a patty, but he's still going to need a binder of some sort.

I'd just stir fry it with some whole green beans and teriyaki sauce.

Ground turkey is fine. Ground chicken is gross.

I find the opposite true.

We make two different burgers from ground chicken in my house.   I'd like to try a curry version soon.

 

First one is chicken bacon ranch.  I use equal parts breast, thigh, and bacon.  Course grind that all together, then add a good amount of hidden valley dry ranch mix.   Patty up and freeze at least enough to firm up and survive grilling.

 

Second we call Greek chicken burgers, equal parts breast and thigh again,  then pepper, oregano, garlic, etc...  all the standard gyro spices, and a bunch of fresh baby spinach,  all course ground.  Then fold in a bunch of feta crumbles and the same parry/freeze.   For this one we buy or make tzatziki sauce to top and dip with.

Great idea on the curry.  I think that's what I'm making the girls for lunch.  I'm thawing some ground turkey, and a creamy curry sounds good.

Ended up making ground turkey patties, guajillo pepper flavored with carrots, celery and onion as the pureed veggies.  Topped with avocado verde salsa.  Thanks for the idea.

I would think you could improvise. What I see there is ground chicken and something with a lot of sugar in it, skewered and grilled. Likely very flexible.

As a resident of the DelMarVa region I don't care how you use chicken, but please continue to use it!

Easy enough to work around. Just sub white wine and some cider or rice vinegar
