Chicken Parmesan Burgers

As I was saying not too long ago, Hubby and I really miss grilling out. It’s just such a classic summertime event. And, you can prepare quick and easy dinners that are healthy and delicious. Oh grilling, how I miss you…


Since we can’t grill, we like to recreate grill-like flavors inside. We make a lot of burgers and broil them. We always make them with chicken or turkey and in fact I don’t think we’ve ever bought ground beef since moving to Boston. With so many fun ways to dress up a poultry burger, who needs beef?


This recipe comes from Elly Says Opa and does not dissappoint. I have to admit that I love caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms, so it is quite possible that the toppings helped my opinion of these burgers. The melted cheese and chunky roasted garlic tomato sauce can’t hurt either. I cooked these up one night and we had dinner for two nights since the recipe make 4 burgers.

    That sounds yummy! I don’t like goat cheese, but bet it would be good with feta too.

    Sounds like a wonderful combo…except like Colleen, I’ve finally come to admit I don’t like goat cheese. Could use more cream cheese I suppose.

    This looks delicious! I can’t wait to make it! Although the cheddar cheese is throwing me off though – did it really match in flavor? Do you think something like asiago would work?

    I agree Colleen, the cheddar does seem out of place. In all honesty, you couldn’t taste it. The goat cheese / cream cheese mixture and caramelized onions and cranberries are all pretty prominent flavors. I’m sure any shredded cheese would be fine.

    Lisa – I’d mix them into the Cranberry mixture or layer them between the cheese and the cranberry layers.
