We love chicken Parmesan and thought, "Why not make it a burger?" I like to use fresh mozzarella on these. I've also made the patties with ground turkey. —Charlotte Gehle, Brownstown, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pound lean ground chicken
  • 1 cup meatless spaghetti sauce, divided
  • 2 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, cut in half
  • 4 slices Italian bread (3/4 inch thick)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients. Add chicken; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick oval patties.
  2. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat 4-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165°. Top burgers with 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce and cheese. Cover and grill 30-60 seconds longer or until cheese is melted.
  3. Grill bread, uncovered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat 30-60 seconds on each side or until toasted. Top with remaining spaghetti sauce. Serve burgers on toasted bread.
    Freeze option: Place patties on a plastic wrap-lined baking sheet; wrap and freeze until firm. Remove from pan and transfer to an airtight freezer container; return to freezer. To use, grill frozen patties as directed, increasing time as necessary for a thermometer to read 165°.
