Give Peas A Chance- Chicken Sliders

I don't cook with a lot of ground chicken. I think it's too dry. I'm not a huge fan of chicken either, but I had been thinking I should try to use ground chicken more. Not a great idea, ground chicken is like ground turkey. Finding some that is just chicken or just turkey is like finding a rare diamond. Packages marked "natural flavorings" added. Erm, no thank you. Sigh. So, find a butcher, grind/process your own, or there are some brands out there that have no flavorings or additives. Of course you don't have to use chicken.
I added onion and apple to the chicken so it wouldn't dry out. We don't have a grill so I broiled these. Whatever way you choose to cook these, watch them so they don't dry out. These can be served on a bun, but I used lettuce. And we love Simple Cabbage Salad, I just pile that on top.
