Reviews for Chicken Florentine Burgers
"Very tasty! My husband gave it two thumbs up!"
"Delicious! I crushed croutons for the bread crumbs since I didn't have any on hand. Used pinot grigio chardonnay as the wine. The burgers are huge, so you could easily make into 8 patties instead of 6 to stretch it out. This is a keeper - big hit with my family!"
"The was flavorful, moist, and smoky. Loved it!"
