Chicken Parm Burgers

We’re big fans of chicken parm and I thought what a great way to take that idea and make it a little healthier and in a different format. I had picked up a pack of ground chicken at the store and this was the perfect way to use it up. They were delicious, quick and easy for a weeknight meal.

1 lb ground chicken
1 egg, slightly beaten
salt
fresh ground pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1/2 cup (more or less) Italian bread crumbs

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until mixed well. Form into 4 to 6 patties and place on a plate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes for the patties to firm up. Cook in a pan or on a grill until no longer pink inside. I cooked mine for 12 minutes or so.

Top with mozzarella cheese and warmed pizza sauce. We served them on whole wheat rolls or you could eat them without (which I did the next day for lunch).

Perfect!
