Preparation

Golden Onions

In microwaveable bowl, stir pasta sauce with green pepper; microwave at High, stirring after 1 minute, until green pepper is tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. (Or cook in saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring, about 4 minutes.) Let cool.

In large bowl, beat egg with pasta sauce mixture; stir in bread crumbs, cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Add chicken; mix until combined. Shape into four 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties. (Make-ahead: Wrap, separated by waxed paper, and refrigerate for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 1 month; thaw in refrigerator.)

Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside and digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre reads 175°F (80°C), about 15 minutes.
