Chicken Parmesan Burgers


Sometimes, don't you just want to eat crispy, breaded chicken smothered in marinara and cheese aside a generous helping of buttery noodles? Well, you can't. I mean, you can, but not all the time. Well, you CAN all of the time, but then your clothes won't fit. Not to worry, because I came up with an alternative last night! Everything you love about Chicken Parmesan in a healthy burger.

Greek yogurt keeps any burger ridiculously moist, and panko will give it that crispy crust. A ton of garlic and fresh herbs for that Italian flair. A dollop of spicy Arribiata, a fresh tomato and one slice of salty mozzarella. Served with spaghetti squash and a green salad. You can keep your clothes, and you're welcome.

These were good... added a little more fresh herbs than called for plus a few extra... subbed Rice Chex pulsed in the food processor for the panko... (had someone with celiac's dining with)

Don't start with your heat too high or the crust/brown will form before the its cooked enough... had a lot of compliments!

Served with some Cauliflower tossed and marinated with a ton of garlic, some olive oil and sea salt and pepper then roasted....


add some basil leaves to the top as a nice garnish... some chiffonade
