Parmesan Chicken Burgers

I got this recipe from a Robin Miller cookbook. My whole family loved the taste of these burgers! They would also make wonderful meatballs.

1 pound ground chicken
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 hamburger buns

In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix well and shape into 4 patties, about 1 inch thick. Either flash freeze or individually wrap in wax paper. Place in freezer bag.

To cook: Thaw overnight in refrigerator. Put 1 tbsp olive oil in stovetop grill pan, griddle, or large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Cook the burgers for 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Top with mozzarella cheese, tent with foil, and cook for 1 minute, or until the cheese melts. Serve on hamburger buns with tomato slices and fresh basil leaves if desired.

These are delicious! My husband & I spread some basil aioli on ours...yum! A great meal to make when ground chicken is on sale (or anytime, really).
