Chicken Parmigiana Burgers

I was coordinating with Bear about dinner today and he decided against the buffalo turkey burgers I had in mind. We landed on something Italian instead.

I found the idea from Pinterest, per usual, but the internet wouldn’t work on my computer when I got home, so I had to improvise. (Even now, I’m writing this from Bear’s computer… Not sure what’s up with mine. Will look into that later.)

So, here’s what I did… Fair warning though: I didn’t do any measurements, so this isn’t exact.

Chicken Parmigiana Burgers

The Stuff:

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 medium sized egg
  • breadcrumbs (maybe about 1/4 cup)
  • grated Parm (maybe 1/4 cup)
  • basil paste (1 tsp)
  • oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • thyme
  • olive oil
  • hamburger buns
  • mozzarella cheese
  • marinara sauce (of your choosing)

The Process:

  • Mix the chicken, egg, spices, breadcrumbs, and Parmesan in a mixing bowl with your hands. Roll into balls (just smaller than a baseball) and flatten out. Yes, like a burger patty.
  • Pour a little olive oil into frying pan and place two patties on pan. Cook on medium for 2-3 minutes per side. Once crispy and brown, remove and set aside.
  • Warm the marinara in a sauce pan. I just reheated some leftover spaghetti sauce. It took less than a minute.
  • Place mozzarella cheese on the bottom bun, then top with the hot patty. Pour a generous spoonful of the marinara over the chicken burger. Sprinkle with a little more cheese if you choose. (Bear elected for more cheese.)
