Equipment

  • skillet
  • mixing bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • cup parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 mozzarella cheese stick
  • handful shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup jarred marinara - I used Delallo's spicy arrabiatta sauce
  • 6 slider buns - I used potato buns

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl combine the ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, dried parsley, salt and pepper. Mix well using your hands.
  • Cut your mozzarella stick down into 6 cubes.
  • Take a handful of meat and stuff one mozzarella cube in the center. Form meat mixture into burger patties. I was able to make 6 burgers from this mixture.
  • Grab a non-stick skillet and gently spray it with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Over medium heat begin to cook your burgers. If the skillet is too hot they will begin to burn on the outside without being cooked in the center.

Pro Tip:

  • Once the burgers have a nice brown sear on both sides, add a small amount of water to the pan and cover it with a lid. This will help keep moisture in the burgers and prevent them from getting too brown while they finish cooking.
  • I cooked mine for about 10-12 minutes. This will vary based on the size of your burgers.
  • Top with a spoonful of your favorite marinara sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese and serve on a slider roll.
  • ENJOY!
