Chicken Parmesan Burgers for an Easy Dinner

I’m so glad you’re here peeking at these Chicken Parmesan Burgers. They are absolutely delicious and so easy to make!  My family loves chicken parmesan for dinner, but during the week I don’t have time to bread the chicken, cook it and then assemble it into their favorite meal; that’s a special occasion kind of meal for the busy working mom.  So, when my middle guy was requesting something different for dinner once upon a time, but chicken parm related, I created this recipe.

This recipe is so easy it can be made on those busy weekday evenings, even when you don’t really feel like making dinner; we all have those days, right? 

However, these Chicken Parmesan Burgers can also be made ahead of time, which I love! 

I’m often asked how I make that happen.  Honestly, its all in the planning.  When I come home from the grocery store on the weekend, I simply prep the meat mixture to this recipe.  I place the chicken parmesan burgers on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and place them in the freezer for 45 minutes to an hour. I then wrap each burger individually in parchment paper.  Then I  place the wrapped burgers into a freezer bag, or other air tight container, and place them in the freezer until I need them.  

One of my busy week days just got a whole lot easier at dinner time.  I have to do is pop the number of burgers I need on that given day in the refrigerator to thaw.  When I get home, I simply cook and serve.  Double this recipe during the prep process and then you will have two dinners over the course of the next four to six weeks to pull from your freezer.

Ingredients

  • 1-pound ground chicken
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon Italian spice
  • 1-teaspoon onion powder
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt

Add the Parmesan cheese, Italian spice, onion powder, sea salt & garlic powder to the uncooked ground chicken. Mix the spices into the ground chicken until they are evenly distributed.

Create burger patties to your desired size. Grill the patties on a grill or inside on a grill pan. Cook the burgers until they are thoroughly cooked. (165 degrees if testing with a meat thermometer)

Top the burgers with your favorite sauce and a slice of mozzarella. Melt the mozzarella on top before serving and enjoy!

Serving Chicken Parmesan Burgers

Here are a few thoughts when serving Chicken Parmesan Burgers;

The Bun:  Yes, you can serve them on your family’s favorite roll or bun.  We often like to use the FlatOut® Fold-It® Flatbreads.  They are like a number eight when opened and fold up around the sandwich catching any thing that drips from the burger.  Did they sponsor this post? NO!  I did do an e-book with their product years ago and have become a fan.

The Sauce:  Yes, you can use your favorite homemade sauce recipe or grab your favorite jarred sauce from your local supermarket.  Our pick?  Is Primo Marinara Sauce.  They call it ‘Sketti Sauce’.  Here is a link.  You can order it on line with no shipping costs!  Did they sponsor this post?  NO!  They are a sponsor of my Fidget Grows a Pizza Garden author visits and my family and I have become a fan of their product for real!  

The Sides:  This is tricky!  So many great and easy side dishes to go along with these Chicken Parmesan Burgers.  A simple salad is always a win!  But, I also often serve roasted broccoli or roasted asparagus = YUM!  Here’s a link to my Roasted Broccoli Recipe.
