Sick of Snow!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — saturner @ 2:18 pm

I think that everyone would be in total agreement that we are done with our share of snow for this winter. Even the kids are panicking about losing spring break! However, for some reason it does stir some cooking creativity within me and I am sick of cooking the same old suff week after week. Some healthy and some not. One of the things I have been trying to work on is making “regular” dishes more healthy. Because of my crazy eating habits I find myself cooking a meal for my family and a separate meal for myself on a daily basis and quite honestly this is not something I have time to do. It has definitely helped making my creativity juices flow and here is a dish I came up with that is healthy, delicious and very satisfying to the belly. I had made my family Chicken Parmigiano and here is my healthier and delicious version.

Herbed Chicken Burger Parm

1 4oz  boneless chicken breast

1 tsp olive oil

1 garlic clove

1 tbsp plain greek yogurt

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp fresh oregano

1 tsp fresh thyme

1 tbsp fresh basil

1 tsp grated Parmigiano Reggiano

1 tbsp whole wheat bread crumbs

1 tbsp fresh mozzarella cheese

1/3 cup tomato sauce

salt and pepper to taste

In a cuisinart combine all ingredients. If you can purchase ground chicken breast you just need to combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Form into a burger.  Place into a hot non-stick pan and brown on both sides. Once the burger is brown place in the oven to finish cooking. Once the burger is fully cooked place some of the tomato sauce and cheese on top to melt.

Place burger on a bed of tomato sauce and enjoy!!
