Chicken Parmesan Burgers

Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite meals. Unfortunately, the breaded and fried chicken doesn't really scream healthy. I found this recipe while perusing food blogs and was pretty skeptical. I mean really, it just doesn't sound like the most appetizing burger in the world.

Boy was I wrong. This recipe has easily made it in to our regular dinner rotation. It is worth quite a few WW points but definitely worth it. I paired it with a big salad (veggies are 0 points on the new system) to keep the meal from becoming too horrible.

1 Pound Ground Chicken

1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

4 oz Grated Mozzarella Cheese
4 Light Hamburger Buns
Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. In a bowl, mix the chicken with the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and seasoning.
  2. Form into 4 patties.
  3. Cook the patties in a pan until cooked through, flipping the burger halfway through cooking.
  4. Turn off the heat.
  5. While still in the pan, top each burger with 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce and 1 oz of mozzarella cheese.
