italian chicken burgers

It may come as a surprise, but there are times when I’m completely satisfied with plain, un-exciting food. Think frozen chicken burgers with frozen green beans. A little horseradish mustard and maybe a pickle on the side and Tuesday night dinner is served.

The Taster on the other hand thinks a meal like that is simply horrifying! (Which is why those meals happen on Tuesday nights when he’s playing BBall) Where is the bun? What are the toppings? He just will not stand for such a minimalist dinner. So I gave him the task of jazzing up those plain old chicken burgers and oh he did just that.

I present – Italian Burgers. Ciabatta bread, fresh mozzarella, fire roasted tomatoes and basil. It was deliciously fresh and so filling. I’m putting him in charge of dinner more often. But not shopping. He’s expensive. ;)

Italian Chicken Burgers – 2 servings

  • 1/2 loaf ciabatta bread
  • 2 chicken burger patties
  • 2 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 1/3 cup fire roasted antipasto tomatoes (from Whole Foods) or use fresh
  • 4 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped

Prepare the chicken burgers as directed.

Meanwhile warm bread in hot oven until golden brown.

Layer the chicken burger with mozzarella slices, tomato and basil.

      I should be having Indian food while he’s gone – that is about the only thing that he isn’t a huge fan of!!

    This looks delicious!

    Sometimes we eat pretty simple food too — for me, eggs/toast is a perfect meal at any time of day!

      I picked these up at the coop and they came from a local chicken farmer. I guess I’ve never really seen chicken burgers (other than those) either…always turkey!
      But you could always get ground chicken and just make your own too.

    Agh!!!! The boys should make dinner more often! btw… I bought some C.S. Candy Cane Lane tea that was on sale and I’m pretty pleased. A great bedtime tea when I’ve od’d on sleepytime.
