Italian-Style Chicken Burgers.

Serves 2, Prep 10mins, Cook 20mins

1 tbsp x Olive Oil
2 x Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
25g x Dried Breadcrumbs
25g x Parmesan
½ x 125g Ball of Mozzarella, halved
2 tbsp x Fresh Basil Pesto (optional)
2 x Ciabatta or Burger Buns, lightly toasted
Salad Leaves and Semi-dried Tomatoes, to serve

Heat your oven to 200C (180C Fan) Gas Mark 6. Rub the oil all over the chicken breasts. Spread the breadcrumbs and parmesan out on two plates, then dip in the chicken to coat.


Place the chicken on a baking sheet and cook for 20mins until just crisp and cooked through. Place the mozzarella slice on top and return the chicken to the oven until the mozzarella starts to melt. Top with a spoonful of pesto (if being used), then pile the burgers into the buns with some salad leaves and tomatoes.
