  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese-style breadcrumbs) 
  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt 
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme 
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil, plus leaves for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano 
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional) 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 cup tomato sauce 
  • 1 large tomato, cut into 4 slices 
  • 4 buffalo mozzarella cheese slices  
  • 4 hamburger buns


  • Place the chicken, panko, yogurt, Parmesan, thyme, rosemary, basil, 
    salt, oregano, black pepper, garlic, and, if desired, crushed red pepper 
    in a bowl, and gently combine, using a spoon or your hands. 
  • Divide the chicken mixture into 4 equal portions; shape each into a 1-inch-thick patty. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add the patties, and cook until a golden brown crust forms, about 6 minutes per side.
  • Preheat the broiler. Place the patties on a baking sheet. Spoon about 
    1⁄4 cup of the tomato sauce onto each burger. Top each with 1 tomato slice and 1 cheese slice. 
  • Broil for a couple of minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve on hamburger buns with extra basil, if desired.
