Pizza-flavoured chicken burger. TNS
If you like burgers and pizza, who says you have to decide between the two for dinner? How about you combine them and make pizza flavoured chicken burger.
Don’t worry, this recipe will hardly take you 10 minutes to put together, so save it for those nights when you don’t feel like making something which requires longer. Serve it with salad on the side and, voila, you have yourself a complete meal.
Here are a few helpful hints for you: Use chicken breasts to make the ground chicken for the burger. If you are out of pizza sauce, you can also substitute it for pasta sauce. Any type of cheese and olive oil can be used.
To time it perfectly, make the salad first and then the burgers.
PIZZA-FLAVOURED CHICKEN BURGER
3/4 pound ground chicken breast meat only
1/2 cup bottled pizza sauce, divided use
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil spray
2 slices part skim milk mozzarella cheese, about 1 ounce total
6 pitted black olives, sliced
2 whole wheat or whole grain hamburger rolls
Several basil leaves
1. Mix chicken with 2 tablespoons pizza sauce and add salt and pepper to taste. Shape into two burgers about 4-inches in diameter and 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with olive oil spray and saute burgers 5 minutes. Turn and saute 3 minutes. Place a cheese slice over each burger. Cover with a lid and cook 2 to 3 minutes. A meat thermometer should read 165 degrees.
