I have both in the fridge. Until now I've only cooked ground turkey, but see the ground chicken everytime I'm at the store. Which one do you prefer and why? I'm making black bean and ground (blank) tacos for dinner. Hate to mess that up by using the wrong one.

I always used ground turkey until my husband brought home ground chicken because they were out of turkey. I am a chicken convert! lol! I love the way it cooks. Its not mushy like the ground turkey. It holds its shape, similar to ground beef. and I think It tastes better.

I like both but lean toward chicken. I think it's more moist.

Agreed, but I read somewhere, that ground chicken is made with the skin as well- which makes it less healthy than the turkey :(

I like turkey better. It is lower fat/calories and I just think it tastes better than ground chicken. I think ground chicken meatloaf is gross, but love it with turkey.

Hmm, that's a toughy... As much as I am a chicken lover, I'd have to say ground turkey. Like other posts mention, it's much healthier than the ground chicken. You can always seal flavors in with seasonings happy

Ground Chicken for sure but ONLY if it's the Breast Meat! There is a difference when looking at the nutritional lable. Plus the ground breast meat looks healthier then the standard ground chicken. I think the chicken tastes better then turkey, plus it holds it shape better when making chicken burgers. Unfortunatly I can only find the ground chicken at our specialty grocery stores. I wish our local stores sold it. Give the Chicken a try and see what you prefer.
