Notes
Ground chicken is not usually available in supermarkets. If your store's butcher won't or can't grind boneless, skinless chicken breasts for you, use your food processor, pulsing it until it is similar to ground beef. One secret to doing this is to freeze the chicken cut in small chunks and process it in a partially frozen state. Processing raw, not frozen chicken makes it slimy.
