Chicken Parmesan Burgers

Last night, I made these tasty chicken burgers that have all the goodness from chicken parm packed into a burger patty.

For the burger coating, I used store bought breadcrumbs because the bread I had on hand was rosemary flavored.  Wasn’t sure if rosemary would be a good add to the burger coating.  For the burger mixture, I just chopped some onion — I am still not sure sure why it was calling for grated onion.

One caveat, I used about 10 oz. of ground chicken which made 3 decent sized burgers.  If I were prepping dinner for 4, I would use a whole pound of ground chicken.

As the burgers cooked, I toasted some of the rosemary bread for the buns and prepared a green salad.

Overall a quick, tasty meal that I think kids will enjoy.
