Parmesan Chicken Burgers

Parmesan chicken burgers, parmesan chicken, healthy food ideas, healthy dinners, clean food that taste good



I have really wanted to add some new recipes to our weekly line up to add some spice to our menu but still keep it healthy and clean. We tried these for the first time after getting the recipe from TASTY after seeing a video they did making them. 
 I used thin sandwich things as our bun. You can easily do this over some Zoodles (zucchini noodles) as a "pasta" dish. 

I used wholewheat bread crumbs and 2% cheese instead of the full fat. 



INGREDIENTS
Breading
½ cup bread crumbs
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup parmesan

Burger
1 pound ground chicken
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon oregano 
½ teaspoon basil
½ teaspoon parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup parmesan
4 slices mozzarella cheese
4 burger buns

Garnish
Marinara sauce
Fresh basil

PREPARATION
1. Stir bread crumbs, salt, and parmesan together in a bowl. 
2. In a large bowl, mix together chicken, salt, pepper, oregano, basil, parsley, minced garlic, and parmesan cheese.
3. Grab a handful of the chicken mixture and pat it out flat in your palm. 
4. Place a slice of mozzarella cheese in the middle and fold the chicken over the edges. Make sure the cheese is fully covered on both sides by the chicken mixture.
5. Cover the patty with the bread crumb mixture on both sides.
6. Cook patty in a pan over medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side.
7. Plate on a bun with marinara sauce and fresh basil.
8. Enjoy!
