Chicken Parm Burgers~ yummmm May 15, 2011

Filed under: Food,HOME,Recipe — Sharon @ 4:10 pm

I saw a recipe for Chicken Parm Burgers on Gina’s Website and took her idea and did a little tweeking to it with what I had in the house and came up with a very delicious dinner.

The ingrediants were simple, ground Chicken, Tomatoes, Cheese, Onion Rolls and some  basil.

 I cut up some fresh basil

and tossed it in with the ground chicken and some salt and pepper

I made that into 4 chicken burgers, they weren’t cute.

Then I took some diced canned tommatoes and half a jar of left over pizza sauce and warmed it up on the stove over medium heat.

then I grilled off the chicken burgers on my Cuisinart griddler.

once they were almost done I topped with tomatoes and provolone cheese until the cheese melted.

I love the way provolone cheese melts so nice on sandwiches.  It also helps hold all the tomatoes on.

The onion buns really added to the flavor and they were nice and moist.  The burger was juicy and the fresh basil was a nice addition.
