Chicken Parmesan Burgers

I'd seen this recipe pop up on several blogs I read, and I was intrigued. I love chicken parmesan, but wasn't sure how it would trnslate into a burger. However, I've been trying to stock my arsenal with quick, easy dishes lately, so I I decided to give it a try.

We both really liked these. They definitely tasted like chicken parmesan, and the toasted buns were a nice touch. I'm sure ground turkey or ground beef would be delicious, too.

Chicken Parmesan Burgers
From Elly Says Opa!, adapted
Serves 2
Cook & Prep Time - 30 minutes

3/4 lb ground chicken (1/2 of my 1.25 lb package)
1/8 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 clove garlic, minced
1 shallot, diced fine
1/8 cup parsley, chopped
salt & pepper
marinara sauce
Shredded Italian cheese
2 toasted buns

Combine meat with Parmesan, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic, shallot, parsley, and salt & pepper. Form into two patties.

Meanwhile, heat a about 1 TBSP of butter with some olive oil in a skillet. Also heat up marinara sauce in a small saucepan.

Cook the burgers about 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Top with marinara sauce and Italian cheese and bake at 450 for about 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese gets bubbly. Serve on toasted buns.

I saw these on Elly's website as well and bookmarked them. They remind me of pizza burgers but without the beef. And who doesn't love a good pizza burger?
