My boyfriend enjoys chicken Parmesan, and I was feeling a light burger, so I created this masterpiece! Feel free to use homemade bread or garlic bread instead of store-bought - I just used what I had on hand.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Combine chicken breasts, parsley, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper in a food processor; process into a smooth paste. Shape chicken mixture into 2 round patties.

  • Mix bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese together in a shallow bowl. Dredge patties to coat both sides. Arrange on an ungreased baking sheet.

  • Spread 1 1/2 teaspoon butter over each slice of bread; sprinkle remaining bread crumb-Parmesan mixture on top. Arrange near the chicken patties on the baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bread is browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer bread to a serving plate. Continue baking chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), 10 to 15 minutes more.

  • Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan. Cook and stir onion and garlic in the butter until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and flour; cook and stir until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in spaghetti sauce; simmer until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Spoon sauce over 2 bread slices. Place a chicken patty in the center; cover with remaining bread slices.

Made as written except that I just waited to toast the bread in the final minutes the patties were cooking. I wasn't thrilled with the consistency of the burgers. Mine never did brown and I overcooked them trying to get them brown. I think they would have been better pan fried in a skillet with a little oil. I also found the flour to be unnecessary. The sauce ended up super think and really didn't need it in my opinion. I do think this is a good recipe and has potential but feel it needs tweaked a little. Read More
