Ingredients
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh oregano, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 1 oz Parmesan cheese, grated (about ¼ cup)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce, divided
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 10 slider buns, halved and toasted
  • 3 oz part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (about ¾ cup)
  • Fresh basil leaves
Instructions
  1. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Once oil is hot, add onion and saute 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add oregano and garlic; sauté 2-3 minutes or until onion is tender and beginning to brown. Place onion mixture in a large bowl; cool slightly. Add chicken, Parmesan, ½ cup pizza sauce, black pepper and crusted red pepper to onion mixture. Mix well with hands. Shape chicken mixture into 10 (1/2-inch-thick) patties and place between small pieces of parchment paper; refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat broiler to high(550 F).
  3. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 10 minutes or until cooking through, turning once.
  4. Arrange bottom halves of rolls on a baking sheet. Place 1 patty on each roll. Top each with 1 tablespoon remaining pizza sauce and 1 tablespoons cheese. Broil 90 seconds or until cheese melts. Top with basil and top halves of buns. Serve immediately.
