Chicken Caesar Burgers
Recipe type: Burger, Entree
Total time: 
Serves: 6
A healthy, easy burger the whole family loves that can be cooked inside at any time of year.
  • 1½ - 2 lbs lean ground chicken or turkey
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped, or ½-1 tsp garlic powder
  • ⅓ - ½ cup of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Handful of flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil, for cooking
  • 6 crusty burger buns
  • Caesar dressing
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Cooked bacon
  • Sliced tomato
  1. In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, garlic, Parmigiano cheese, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, and lemon zest.
  2. With the side of your hand, score the mixture into 6 and form into roughly equal patties, making a little dip in the center and keeping the edges thicker so they cook up flat and even. If you have time, I like to throw them in the fridge for an hour or the freezer for 10 minutes so they can set a bit, making them easier to flip without breaking. Otherwise just be gentle with the spatula and you'll be fine :)
  3. Heat a large non-stick skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat. When hot, add patties and cook for about 4 minutes per side, until juices run clear.
  4. Meanwhile, toast rolls if desired, and slather both sides generously with Caesar dressing. Add romaine, bacon, and tomato and finish with the patty. Perfect.
