Chicken Parmesan Burger

Chicken Parmesan Burger


• 4 Turano Golden Split Top Buns
• 1 cup marinara sauce
• 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
• Chopped fresh basil
• Shredded parmesan cheese
• 1 pound lean ground chicken
• 1 tablespoon shredded parmesan cheese
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
• 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
• 1 teaspoon dried parsley
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
• 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
• 2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
• 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
• Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


① In a large bowl combine all of the chicken parmesan burger ingredients together with your hands, then form into 4 equal sized patties.
② In a shallow dish combine the ingredients for the panko breadcrumb coating.
③ Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. When the skillet is hot generously spray it with cooking spray or olive oil. Dredge each burger in the panko mixture then place it in the hot skillet.
④ If you choose to broil the toppings for the burgers, preheat the oven while the burgers are cooking. Cook the burgers for about 4 minutes per side or until the juices run clear.
⑤ If you don't plan to broil the burger toppings, add them to the burgers now and cover the skillet with a lid until the cheese is melted. Place the burgers and halved buns on a sheet pan.
⑥ Top the burgers with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Brush the top half (cut side) of the buns with olive oil and sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese.
⑦ Broil the burgers and buns until the cheese is melted and the buns are golden and toasted. Place the burgers on the buns and top with fresh chopped basil if desired.
