  • 1 pound ground chicken extra lean
  • cup smoked turkey ham finely diced
  • cup Swiss cheese finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons onion finely minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt optional
  • 1 pinch white pepper to taste
  • 2 medium eggs divided, see directions below
  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 2 sprigs tarragon fresh
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 medium lettuce leaves
  • 1 medium tomato sliced


  • In a bowl, combine the chicken, turkey ham, Swiss cheese, onion, salt, and white pepper. Then add the egg. Mix with your hands until well blended. Form into 4 even patties.
