What makes these lean chicken burgers so moist and rich-tasting? The combo of shredded apple, onion, and sage. A creamy drizzle of blue cheese dressing puts them over the top. If you’d like, double up when you make the burger patties and freeze extras for later. Baked sweet potato fries are a quick and easy side for these burgers. Put 1 1/2 oz of fries in the oven for each serving you want. Start baking them just before you begin prepping the burgers and both will be done at about the same time.
