These burgers were born out of desperation. Mark and I are in the process of a little DIY bathroom renovation. Why? Because I am a crazy person and Mark is too scared of me to say no. True love :) While our new bathroom might look totally fabulous NOW...this weekend it was a frightful mess. We were super hungry and all I had in the fridge was a package of ground chicken (Side Note: My best buddie, Lauren made this with ground turkey and loved it too). What could I make with this that would be satisfying, delicious, and quick? Then I remembered that I have a bag of frozen pesto in my freezer for emergencies. This was an emergency. These burgers turned out to be totally fabulous. Pesto is one of my favorite flavors. You can buy it already made up in the store or use your favorite homemade recipe. Combined with the ground chicken, these burgers were moist, full of flavor and very satisfying. Perfect dinner! This made 5 patties. We ate 3 that night and froze the other two.
