Herbed Dill Pickle Chicken Burger

I love a good burger!  There is nothing more satisfying than a hearty burger to sink your teeth into.  

I usually make these in a batch and store them in my favorite "Shape and Store" tray that I purchased on Amazon. Perfect for storing and freezing for later.

You can use ground chicken or ground turkey in this burger recipe. The smell of fresh dill is amazing and actually has a lot of health benefits like:

- Good for your digestive tract
- Helpful with insomnia
- Helpful with excess gas
- Bone health
- Boost immune system

And...who needs pickles on the top causing a big mess when you can have the pickles on the inside. These burgers are sweet and juicy packed with chopped dill pickles.

Did you know that pickled foods contain probiotics, which are beneficial to your overall health?

Pickling is a form of fermentation. When vegetables and fruits are fermented, healthy bacteria help to break down the hard-to-digest cellulose in foods, as well as some of the natural sugar. This is why some people who are lactose intolerant may be able to eat yogurt. These healthy bacteria help to keep fermented food safe and less likely to spoil, and can also help increase the good bacteria in your gut when eaten.

The primary drawback to eating dill pickles is the amount of sodium they contain. Pickles contain between one-third and one-half of your daily recommended intake of sodium. So, pickles should definitely be eaten in moderation. 

Also, many store-bought pickles are not only pasteurized, which destroys nutrients but they also contain ingredients that are harmful to the body. Read the ingredient label, choose an organic brand or consider making your own dill pickles, which allows you to control the ingredients and how much salt you add.

Give these herbed chicken burgers with a dill-icious twist a try. They are perfect for everyday grilling!
