These cheesy parmesan chicken burgers are stuffed with homemade Marinara Sauce and creamy mozzarella. It's a healthy higher protein option that will keep hunger at bay.
You can serve these cheese stuffed burgers with any summer salads, or make a batch of Low-Carb Fries from parsley roots, turnips or rutabaga (swede) instead of potatoes. You can also serve these bunless burgers with roasted vegetables or a simple Keto Coleslaw.
Air Fryer to Oven Baking Conversion
If you don't have an air fryer, simply bake these in the oven. When converting an air fryer recipe to oven, you will need to bake it at a higher temperature for a few minutes longer.
To bake these Low-Carb Italian Stuffed Chicken Burgers in the oven, preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional). Once preheated, place the burgers in a tray lined with parchment paper and place in the middle rack of your oven. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove and top with the marinara sauce and mozzarella. Place bake in the oven and bake for another 8 to 9 minutes.
I used a large half-pound burger press to make these stuffed burgers. If you use a quarter-pound burger press to create 4 small burgers instead, reduce the cooking time by about 20 %.
