Chicken, Lemon and Parmesan Burgers

It's 4:54pm on Sunday evening and after a full day in the kitchen (Ok so by the time I got out of bed it was a half day, but still....) I'm conked out on the couch exhausted. There is just no way I'm getting up any time soon to prepare dinner, which is OK because we only just had lunch....but I'm actually not that convinced I'll be moving from this spot anytime in the next 24 hours so Mr B may have to fend for himself tonight. 

On night's like these, it's great to have a stash of go-to meal ideas that are easy, delicious and most of the time you have all of the ingredients in your cupboard. Plus let's be honest, it's either these, a bowl of cereal or a packet of microwave pasta....I know which one I'd prefer! 

These burgers are packed full of flavour and unbelievably juicy and moist - you will find that your dragging yourself off the couch to go back for seconds in no time! 

Chicken, Lemon and Parmesan Burgers

You will need:

2 x chicken breast, cut into chunks
1 egg
2 tspn crushed garlic
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tspn wet italian herbs (I used Gourmet Garden brand) or alternatively you could use 1 tbspn finely chopped fresh basil
Rind from 1 lemon, finely grated
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup plain flour
1 tbspn olive oil
4 x soft rolls
Lettuce, tomato and cheese

Place all ingredients, except flour, into a food processor. Process until all ingredients are combined. The chicken should be completely minced up with no big pieces remaining in your mixture.

Place the flour in a bowl or on a plate. Shape the chicken mixture into 8 patties and lightly dust with flour.

Place the floured patties on a plate and let them firm up in the fridge for 20-30 mins.

Heat the oil in a fry pan over medium heat. Cook the patties in batches for 7-10 mins before turning over. Cook until both sides are golden and patties are cooked through.

Serve in rolls with lettuce, tomato and cheese.
