Chicken Parmesan Sandwich Burgers

Chicken Parmesan Sandwich Burgers is a great way to switch up a chicken parm dish or even to change up your chicken parm sandwich!

Its cheesy, crunch, swimming in marinara, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I took my chicken parmigiano recipe and altered it a bit to make it a fun family inner meal that everyone loved.

Except of course my kids just wanted the chicken parm by itself, not on a burger.

So i guess it was a fun family dinner that the wife and I loved.

The key to making these sandwiches, is thinning out your chicken breast as much as possible.

I like to cover my chicken in wax paper, then demolish it with a small cast iron skillet. You’ll want it 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness.

After broiling the mozzerella cheese on top, I cut these in halfso I could double up the burger, and make them taller, not wider, but thats totally up to you!

And be sure to have plenty of marinara and fresh basil to accompany these sandwiches because it really is what brings it all together!
