Chicken Caesar Burger

chicken caesar burger

The perfect summer meal, this chicken Caesar salad-inspired burger gets its swagger from a creamy, Parmesan-laced mayonnaise. 

Prep time: 22 minutes

Cook time: 8 minutes

Servings: 4 people

Preparation

Put the chicken breasts between two pieces of clingfilm or baking paper.

Flatten by bashing with a rolling pin until 1.5cm thick.

Marinate the chicken in 2 tbsp olive oil, the lemon zest, garlic and some seasoning.

Heat a griddle pan or a large frying pan over a medium-high heat.

Cook the chicken for 6-8 minutes, turning halfway through, or until cooked through with no pink meat showing.

Meanwhile, mix the Caesar mayonnaise ingredients together in a bowl.

Slice the ciabatta rolls in half and toast in a toaster or under a grill.

Spread each side of the ciabatta with the Caesar mayonnaise, top with the grilled chicken, romaine lettuce and Parmesan shavings. 

Tip: Try not to break the chicken up when flattening, spend most time bashing the thicker end.
