  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 tablespoons caesar dressing see below
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped scallions
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese optional

Caesar Dressing

  • 1/2 cup homemade mayo or store-bought
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

To Garnish

  • 3 cups romaine lettuce shredded
  • 3 tablespoons caesar dressing from above
  • Sliced tomato
  • Sliced red onion
  • Parmesan Crisps


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place all of the ingredients for the dressing in a high-speed blender and pulse once (about 5 seconds) just until the dressing is thick and smooth. If you over blend, the dressing will become watery.
  • In a large bowl, toss all of the chicken burger ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • Divide the mixture into 4-parts, and shape and place 4 patties on the baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through at a temperature of 165ºF.
  • Broil on high for 2-3 minutes, or until the tops become a light golden brown.
  • Make ceasar "slaw": Toss in a bowl romaine lettuce and caesar Dressing.
  • While the burgers are baking, make caesar slaw and assemble other desired topping.


To Make Parmesan Crisps:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spoon cheese by tablespoonfuls two inches apart on the prepared baking sheet (1 tablespoon per crisp).
  3. Bake for 6 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool completely before lifting each crisp up with a spatula.
