Wonder Women Sixty’s EZ Italian-Style Chicken Burgers:

In a large bowl, mix together:

1 lb. Ground chicken (can be all white meat or mixed)

3 tablespoons of store bought pesto

5 tablespoons of chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil

½ cup of bread crumbs

½ of an onion, grated

1 egg white

1-1/2 teas. oregano

salt/pepper to taste

4-6 slices of Mozzarella cheese (whole or part-skim) – OPTIONAL

burger buns (choose your favorite)

Form into patties. Place the patties on a shallow metal tray or on heavy aluminum foil. Bake at 375 degrees until they are done – approx. 30 minutes, depending on how well-done you like your burgers (also depends on your oven). A FEW MINUTES BEFORE BURGERS ARE DONE: ADD THE CHEESE SLICES so they become slightly melted.

SERVE & ENJOY! Pairs well with a tossed salad.

LEFTOVERS: Leftover burgers can be chopped up and added into your favorite marinara sauce and served over your favorite pasta.

TIP: When making the burgers, make some of them meatballs. After the burgers and meatballs are done, cool off the meatballs and freeze them to use in the future for a meatball sub or over pasta with marinara sauce.

HEALTH BENEFIT: Chicken is more lean than beef. An egg white (as opposed to a whole egg), helps keep cholesterol down. Part-skim cheese or NO cheese at all, lightens up the fat and calories. Whole wheat buns or no bun at all keep it even healthier.
