  1. Grease a baking sheet with olive oil spray.
  2. Place olive oil in a bowl and combine the panko, breadcrumbs and parmesan in another bowl.
  3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and then place it in the bowl of olive oil so that it coats the chicken pieces evenly.

  5. Spray the top with an olive oil spray, and bake in an oven preheated to 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes.

Outside-In Cheeseburgers
  • 2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1'/z tsp fresh chopped dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions :
  1. In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients just until everything is evenly dis­tributed. Don't overmix, as that will make your burgers tough.
  2. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions. Form each portion into a flat ham­burger patty.
  3. To freeze : Place the patties on a baking sheet and freeze until firm. Remove the frozen pat­ties from the sheet and place them in a freezer bag.  (You may choose to separate rows of burgers with wax paper.)
  4. To serve : Remove the desired number of patties from the bag.  Place the frozen patties on a hot grill or in a skillet. When the tops of the burgers appear wet, flip them over. Continue cooking until the burgers are done. Serve on buns with veggies and condiments.
