Ground chicken stuffed full of fresh herbs, coated in seasoned bread crumbs and pan seared. These Chicken Parm Burgers are covered in a delicious marinara sauce, melted mozzarella, and served on squishy soft buns. A great burger tribute to a classic Italian dish!
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1½ cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs (I like the breadcrumbs with cheese!)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (more as needed)
  • 2 cups marinara sauce (I recommend this Fresh Stove Top Tomato Sauce)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 ripe tomato, thinly sliced
  • 4 soft buns (I used snowflake rolls)
  1. In a large bowl combine the chicken, garlic, oregano, basil, salt, black pepper, and ed pepper flakes. Don't overwork it; just mix until combined. Shape into 4 equal patties.
  2. Pour the breadcrumbs into a shallow dish. One at a time, coat all sides of each patty with the bread crumbs.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F and cover a baking sheet in foil.
  4. Heat the oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Add the patties and cook for about 4 minutes on the first side, checking to make sure they aren't getting too dark. Turn the burgers and cook for another 4 minutes on the second side. I like to make a small cut in one burger to check for doneness.
  5. Working on your prepared baking sheet, assemble all but the top bun of your burgers. On the bottom bun add a slice of tomato and top it with a chicken patty. Spoon marinara over the chicken and cover it with mozzarella cheese. Repeat with the other 3 burgers. Place the top buns cut-side down on the baking sheet and put all of it in the oven for 2-4 minutes, just until the cheese melts.
  6. Add the top bun to the burgers and serve.
