Chicken Parmigiana Burgers

A quick lunch or weeknight meal ready in less than 10 minutes your whole family will enjoy! Chicken burgers topped with pomodoro sauce and melted mozzarella. Grill them or you cook them indoors in a skillet. Easy enough to adapt for one or a large group.

Burgers are the perfect weeknight meal and using lean chicken or turkey burgers keep these burgers figure friendly. You can certainly buy your own ground chicken and make the patties yourself but if you don’t feel like getting your hands dirty, the pre-seasoned patties are perfect. If you’re feeling extra lazy and you are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s near you they make delicious pre-cooked chicken burger in the refrigerated section which are so good!

I always have homemade sauce on hand, it’s smart to make large batches of sauce to jar or freeze so you can whip up quick meals in a pinch… of course store bought jarred sauce would work as well. Serve these over a low calorie roll such as a whole wheat kaiser if you can find them. Points may vary depending on brands. The rolls I used were 110 calories, 0 fat, 0 fiber, 23 carbs. If you want to skip the bun, serve them on a bed of lettuce instead!
