For Chicken Patties

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon marinara sauce
  • ½ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs for coating patties
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil for frying

For the Chicken Parmwich

  • 6 round bread rolls cut in half
  • 6 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 to 1 cup marinara sauce
  • arugula optional


  • Place all the ingredients for the chicken patties in a medium size bowl, excluding the last 2 ingredients. Mix everything together until well incorporated. This mixture should make 6 patties, so divide the mixture equally into 6 and form them into 3 or 4 inch patties.
  • Add the 1 cup of breadcrumbs to a shallow plate and dredge the chicken patties through the breadcrumbs.
  • Add 1 tbsp of the olive oil to a large skillet and heat it over medium high heat. You'll have to do this in 2 batches, so add 3 of the patties to the skillet and cook on both sides for about 5 minutes per side or until golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken patties to a plate and set aside. Add the remaining tbsp of olive oil to the skillet and continue frying the last 3 patties.
  • Top each chicken patty with 2 tbsp or 3 tbsp of marinara sauce, and a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese. Place the patties on a baking sheet and place under the broiler for 2 minutes or until the cheese is starting to melt.
  • Assemble the sandwiches by adding some arugula to the bottom of the bun, then a chicken patty and then the top of the bun. Serve while patties are warm.


  1. These can be made with ground turkey, pork, beef, or whatever type of ground meat you prefer.
  2. If you can't find Panko breadcrumbs, regular breadcrumbs or even crushed up corn flakes would work.
  3. To bake these, preheat your oven to 400 F degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the chicken patties on the baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes, flipping them over half way through, or until golden brown.
  4. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
