Chicken Parmesan Burgers

Made these bad boys last night, my only recommendation after following’s recipe is to make them thin and add a little more spice.  Enjoy!


  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 c. chopped parsley
  • 1/4 c. Parmesan, divided
  • 1/2 c. italian breadcrumbs
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 c. marinara
  • 4 slices fresh mozzarella
  • Torn basil, for serving
  • 4 harmburger buns, toasted


  1. In a medium bowl, combine ground chicken, garlic, parsley, Parmesan, and breadcrumbs. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir with a wooden spoon until evenly mixed. Form the mixture into 4 patties.
  2. In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Place the patties in the skillet and cook until golden brown on one side, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Flip the patties, then immediately pour marinara around them in the pan. Bring marinara to a simmer, reducing the heat to medium if the sauce is bubbling too rapidly. Top each patty with cheese then cover pan and cook until the cheese melts and the chicken burger is cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes more.
  4. Spoon extra sauce onto the bottom halves of the burger buns and place burgers on top. Garnish with basil and top with remaining bun halves. Serve immediately.
