Which ground chicken should I use? Best to purchase chicken that is 90-93% lean. The 99% lean may be too lean and too dry, but use it it’s what you have on hand. Alternatively, you could ground chicken breasts to into small pieces in a food processor. Can I use mushrooms in the ground chicken filling? Yes, I used Baby Bella mushrooms. You could use white mushrooms.
