Chicken Parm Burgers

1 lb ground chicken (you can substitute turkey if you cant find chicken)
1/2 c bread crumbs
1 small onion, grated
1 TBSP Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 egg
1 tsp Worcestershire

1 tomato, thinly sliced
1 c. fresh basil leaves
4 slices mozzarella

Combine all but the last 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Form into 4 patties, and place on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Cook under the broiler about 5 minutes per side until browned well.

After cooking both sides, layer with tomato slices, then basil leaves, and a slice of cheese. Return to the broiler until melted and browned.

WHY DIDN'T YOU GRILL THEM? you ask? The chicken was a little moister than burgers usually are here are our house and it would've oozed through the grate before forming an exterior crust. If you want to grill, I'd suggest just setting down a sheet of foil to keep them together when they first go on.

This is GREAT with a little arugula and sun dried tomato. Serve as a salad with the burger patty on the side or as a sandwich on a ciabatta roll with a little herbed mayo. YUM!
