Best Ground Chicken Recipes, according to me! Chicken Mince (ground chicken) is white meat, a leaner alternative to beef mince. Simply substituting chicken mince for beef mince will not alter the flavor or texture of the dish. Rissoles, burgers, meatballs, meatloaf.

This collection covers recipes that are cooked using chicken mince PLUS additional recipes where you can perform a straight swap using chicken mince instead of beef, hog, or lamb mince.

Chicken koftas, anyone??
