Chicken-Caesar-Burgers-5.jpgThese Chicken Caesar Burgers are perfect ‘man grub’, especially when there is football on! This is another easy recipe that makes lots of dressing so you can slather it on the side salad or leave it for another day. The burger bun becomes one giant crispy Parmesan croûton….

First make the dressing. Put a chopped garlic clove, egg yolks, lemon juice, honey, vinegar, Worcester sauce and mustard powder into a food processor. Whizz it all up and then slowly pour in the olive oil while the motor is running.Chicken-Caesar-Burgers.jpgGrate some Parmesan and stir in.Chicken-Caesar-Burgers-4-1.jpgGet your favourite burger buns and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on some grated Parmesan.Chicken-Caesar-Burgers-3.jpgPlace under a medium grill until toasted.

Dredge the chicken or turkey escalopes in flour and heat some oil and butter in a pan. Fry over a medium heat for a couple of minutes each side until golden.

Finely slice some lettuce and assemble the burgers. Spread both bread sides with the dressing. Add a piece of chicken Thai Fish Burgers, more dressing, lettuce, dressing and more chicken.

it’s just really, really good!
