Chicken Parmesan Burgers

This is another recipe I’ve seen floating around the blog-o-sphere before with rave reviews.  We often keep ground chicken or ground turkey on hand in the freezer because when I catch a sale, I like to stock up.  It’s great because ground chicken is so versatile, and pairs well with lots of flavors.  Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf, Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patties, Caribbean Spiced Chicken Burgers, and now Chicken Parmesan Burgers.  Each with a different flavor combination!

This recipe comes together so quickly, and easily, with a really tasty payoff.  I found them to be super moist & juicy, with lots of flavor coming through in every bite.  Most of the ingredients are always on hand for me, so this is a great recipe for us.  The Boy loved them too, but he loves just about any burger, so I knew this was an easy bet!


Chicken Parmesan Burgers


1 lb. ground chicken
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 cup chopped flatleaf parsley
1 clove garlic, finely minced or pressed
1 shallot, finely diced
salt and pepper

1/2 cup pasta sauce
4 slices mozzarella or provolone (or 1/2 cup shredded)
4 buns (brushed with a little garlic butter, they are even better)


Lightly mix together all the ingredients for the burgers. Form into 4 patties. I like to make them about 30-40 minutes ahead of time, to let the flavors meld a little bit.

Preheat & spray the broiler with a little oil (or use the grill, or a pan). Broil the burgers for about 4 minutes on the first side, then flip and broil for 3 minutes. Top each chicken burger with 2 Tbsp. pasta sauce and a slice (or about 2T) of cheese. Place back under the broiler for 30-60 seconds, until cheese in melted and burger is cooked through. Place the buns in the broiler for about 10 seconds, just until toasted.
