Prep Time 15minutes
Cook Time 18minutes
1/2cupfinely diced yellow or sweet onion
1large egg,lightly beaten
1/2cupdried bread crumbs
1/3cupfreshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4cupchopped fresh parsley
1/4teaspooncrushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2cupsmarinara sauce
2tablespoonsfreshly grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2cupsshredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 475 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 3 to 4 minutes to soften. Stir often so that the garlic doesn't burn.Remove from heat and let cool.
To a large bowl, add ground chicken, egg, milk, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepepr flakes.Add the cooked onion and garlic and mix everything together well.
Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and shape them into oval shapes on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle the remaining olive oil on top.
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes.
While they bake, stir together marinara sauce and tomato paste in a bowl.
Once chicken patties have baked, remove them from the oven and spoon the marinara mixture on top. Sprinke with the parmesan cheese and the mozzarella, being careful to pile the cheese directly on top of the patties. Some of it will ooze off but you want as much as possible to stay put.
Place back in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
