Parmesan Chicken Burgers by Tracey's Culinary Adventures

I'm excited to announce that today's Guest Recipe of Chicken Parmesan Burgers comes from Tracey's Culinary Adventures. I found Tracey quite accidentally, actually, a couple of weeks ago when I resolved to organize my Foodbuzz profile and proceeded to go through all 4,000 messages in my inbox dating back to April of this year.
