Parmesan Crusted Chicken Burgers – #15MinuteSuppers

20140521-222507.jpg

My husband and I were lucky enough to go out to dinner the other night with our church small group. It was great to get out and enjoy a meal without the kids. But my Parmesan Crusted Chicken and Mashed Potatoes from BJ’s was so good I had to bring it back to my kids. In burger form of course. And why not throw in “quick”-just 15 minutes to a gourmet burger.

This week’s 15 Minute Suppers had a theme. Gourmet burgers. And what’s more gourmet than inspiration from a delicious meal?

In this burger I packed the juiciness of white meat chicken, the savory goodness of mashed potatoes, and the crispiness of crusted parmesan cheese. All this topped with a lemony cream sauce and ripe tomatoes with basil. Yep, all the flavors of a complete dinner.

My husband said I should call these Minute Burgers, because my finicky Jesse polished these off before my husband and I even hit the table. I made Jesse a special gluten free version with brown rice bread. He loved it-all the way up to his milk mustache.

Lightly spray the griddle with cooking spray and carefully place the chicken patties on the grill. Cook on one side for about 4 minutes.

Meanwhile combine the cream cheese and butter in a small microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 30 seconds, stirring halfway through cooking time. Remove from the microwave and stir in the lemon juice and garlic salt.
