Chicken Parmesan Burgers

Serves 4
  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. coarse ground black pepper
  • - cooking spray
  • 4 Kowalski's Take & Bake Ciabatta Rolls, split horizontally and lightly toasted
  • 4 oz. sliced provolone cheese
  • 1/2 cup Kowalski's Garlic Marinara Pasta Sauce, warmed in the microwave
  • - fresh basil, for garnish

Combine first 10 ingredients (through pepper) in a large bowl. Using your hands, mix thoroughly; form 4 patties. Spray burgers very lightly on both sides with cooking spray. On a grill preheated to medium-high, grill burgers directly over heat until done (4-5 min. on each side), lid down, turning twice and topping evenly with cheese in the last 2 min. of cooking (after flipping burgers for the last time). Remove from heat; let stand 3-5 min., tented loosely with foil, before serving. Serve on warm rolls topped with sauce and garnished with fresh basil.

Good to Know: Use slightly damp hands to shape your burgers, to keep the mixture from sticking to your fingers.
