My family loves Chicken Parmesan, so these burgers are always a hit! Ready in less than 10 minutes your whole family will enjoy! I used preformed chicken patties, cooked them and topped them with my quick marinara sauce and melted mozzarella. Great on the grill or cook them indoors in a skillet.

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-formed patties are perfect.

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. If you want to skip the buns, serve them over zoodles instead.

    Great idea to use chicken burgers. I had a few grilled chicken breasts left over in the fridge along with about a cup of pomodoro sauce from Saturday. Just added shredded mozzarella and into the microwave for about 2 min. Added to a bun and enjoyed a quick lunch!!

  2. This was awesome and everyone loved it but I think you might want to update your WW points. Blue and green are both listed at 10 points but that can’t be correct since chicken is 0 pts on blue but not 0 pts on green (blue should be lower in points than green). Also purple is NEVER higher in points than blue/green.

    1. The recipe calls for lean chicken and not extra lean. Therefore whether on the blue, purple or green plan, this will count as 4pts for 4oz of uncooked meat. Hope this helps!


  4. In college we had a Italian place on the food court, next to a sub place. When we were lucky, the Italian place would have chicken Parmesan and the popular thing was to get the sub place to make subs with the chicken parm. This seems like a much healthier (less messier) version of an old college fav!

  5. I've been making chicken burgers for years, but this was amazing. I especially love the pomodoro sauce. Wow! My taste buds popped. I have two picky eaters in my home (I pity their future wives), and they asked for seconds. I've started a cook book of recipes my two boy/men will eat and this will be included. Thank you, I'm going to try different recipes, slowly, to see if I can add to that recipe book.

    Made these with Turkey burgers and they turned out great, and were perfect on whole wheat buns. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Trying yet another amazing recipe of yours tonight. Thank you so much for helping me stay on track with my wedding diet!

  8. So, just to be clear, if I have my portion without a roll, everything is the same except it's 5.8 g Carbs?

  9. My hubby LOVES this recipe I found on your site!!! One of our favorites! I do add sauteed onions to the sandwich. I did have my local butcher grind the chicken for me (it was breast meat only) and it was a little drier than the Purdue ground chicken I buy. But LOVE THIS!!!

  10. I made today for dinner and boy it was so good! I should have made more of the sauce! It makes the sandwich! YUM!

  11. I am going to try these tonight. I have made 25+ of your recipes. Basically 5 nights a week I use skinnytaste. I've done weight watchers a couple times and never found it as easy as I do with your help. Thank you. 12 lbs lost in one month!!! šŸ™‚ YOU ARE THE BEST —Lindsey

  12. Just made these and they are fantastic! I had to make my own patties from ground chicken, italian spices and some italian bread crumbs. This is one of the best lunches I've made.

  13. This is perfect for this week! I have three tests and I needed to make something quick, healthy, and filling. I combined this with a salad and it was super delicious! Thanks Gina. šŸ™‚

  14. Mmmmm….I was just looking for something that I could make with your onion rings for an easy weeknight meal. I think this is just the ticket! THANKS! šŸ™‚

  15. Wonderful idea, my kids LOVED their "pizza burgers" I used ground chicken and just added Italian seasoning & salt and pepper. Pan fried and used bertolli jarred marinara sauce and wheat hamburger buns. KID PLEASER, quick and easy! These would make a great appetizer or party food if made slider size!

  16. Can I just say how much I LOVEEEE you site! I discovered it a couple weeks ago and have made about 20-30 recipes, LOVED them all, and am just working my way through your site! We have made these twice already! Thanks for all the great recipes!!
