Chicken Mozza Burgers

I decided to try making some chicken burgers that are coated in herbed Italian breadcrumbs to give them a crispy texture.  These burgers are a lighter version of a beef burger but still full of flavour, especially when you top them with some roasted red pepper sauce and mozzarella cheese - YUM!

Chicken Mozza Burgers

 

  • 2 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp dried basil
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh Oregano
  • 1 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

Topping

  • 1 cup roasted red pepper sauce (jarred or homemade)
  • 16 thick slices Mozzarella cheese
  • 8 burger buns

Directions

  1.  Place all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.  Mix together just until all the ingredients are combined - do not overwork the meat.
  2. Spread the meat mixture into the bottom tray of a Burger Master and press lid on top to make 8 perfect quarter pound portions or form patties by hand to desired size.
  3. Cook the patties either on the grill or in a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat (heat 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil in the pan before adding the patties).  
  4. Top the patties with sauce and 2 slices mozzarella 1 minute before removing from heat. 
  5. Enjoy!
