Pesto Chicken Burgers

Pesto Chicken Burgers

So my wife is in Germany this week.  Sure, she’s there for work, but she keeps sending these amazing photos of the town where she is staying…and I can’t help but be jealous!  I mean, she’s in Germany!  She sent me a message yesterday that she wanted to get a cuckoo clock while she’s there.  One can never have enough cuckoo clocks.  Well, to be fair, the number of cuckoo clocks in our collection currently sits at 0.  I thought it might be pretty cool to have one…but then I remembered that it would be cuckoo-ing all night long.  Hmmm, we might need to rethink this plan.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup basil pesto (homemade or store-bought), divided
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup mixed lettuce or arugula
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 4 ciabatta rolls, sliced
