    These are delicious and so easy! I used turkey burger since I did not have chicken, and it worked well. Also, there is no oil included to cook the burgers, I used some coconut oil. Pair with an Un-bun!!

    • We’re so glad you enjoyed them! They are indeed easy and delicious! And yes, we didn’t cook with oil, but if you do, just be sure to recalculate the macros, if you’re counting them! Thanks for sharing your experience with us!
