Chicken Parmesan Burgers

Whenever I wake up to snow, I immediately think of comfort food.  Something about the cold snow, the wet and soggy ground, and the dreariness of a snowy sky just makes me want something warm and satisfying.

After perusing my daily blogs, I stumbled upon these Chicken Parmesan Burgers from Cara's Cravings and texted my roommate to confirm she was on board.  She quickly agreed, "Yess...yum!", and just as easy as that dinner was decided.  I made some small adaptions from the original recipe but these burgers were awesome.  They were comforting, very flavorful, and filling!

Ingredients: (Makes 2 burgers)
For the burgers:
10 oz ground chicken breast
1/2 oz grated parmesan cheese
2 Tbs plain bread crumbs
1 Tbs chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbs chopped fresh basil
1 clove garlic, finely minced
2 Tbs minced sweet onion
Salt and pepper

For the toppings:
1/4 cup pasta sauce
2 slices mozzarella
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

Combine the ground chicken with the cheese, parsley, basil, bread crumbs, garlic, onion, salt, and pepper.

Saute the mushrooms over medium heat in a skillet coated with olive oil or cooking spray.  Season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, preheat the broiler.  Form two large patties from the ground chicken mixture and place on a foil line baking sheet.

Broil for 5 minutes on the first side; flip, and broil for 5 more minutes.

Remove burgers from the oven and top each one with 2 tablespoons of sauce and 1 slice of cheese.  Return and cook 1 - 2 minutes more.

Top the burgers with the sauteed mushrooms on any bun of your choice.

And devour....
