Chicken Caesar Burgers Recipe

Ingredients

For the chicken patties

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons Caesar dressing
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For the burgers

  • 4 hamburger buns (brioche buns are a great choice)
  • Romaine lettuce leaves
  • Caesar dressing (additional)
  • Sliced tomatoes (optional)
  • Sliced red onions (optional)
  • Croutons (optional)

Instructions

1. Make the patties

  • In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, Caesar dressing, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Mix until all ingredients are evenly combined. Do not overmix.

2. Form the patties

  • Divide the chicken mixture into four equal portions. Shape each portion into a patty about ½ inch thick.

3. Cook the patties

  • Grilling: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill the patties for 5-7 minutes per side, or until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • Pan-frying: Heat a large skillet or grill pan over medium heat with a bit of olive oil. Cook the patties for 5-7 minutes per side, or until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

4. Assemble the burgers

  • Lightly toast the hamburger buns.
  • Place a cooked chicken patty on the bottom bun.
  • Top with romaine lettuce, tomato slices (if using), red onions (if using), a generous drizzle of Caesar dressing, and some croutons (if using).
  • Place the top bun on and enjoy!

Tips

For extra richness: Add some shredded Parmesan cheese on top of the patties during the last minute of cooking.

Don’t overmix the chicken: Overmixing can make the burgers tough. Gently combine the ingredients until just incorporated.

Check for doneness: Always use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of the chicken patties reaches 165°F for food safety.

Get creative: Experiment with toppings like avocado slices, sautéed mushrooms, or even a fried egg.
