Equipment

  • Large skillet or grill
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper

Ingredients

For The Caesar Vinaigrette

  • 2 anchovies finely chopped, or 1 tsp anchovy paste
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano grated
  • 1 Tbsp garlic minced, about 3 cloves
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil

For The Chicken Patties

  • 2 - 2 ¼ lbs ground chicken light or dark meat
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs, panko, or crackers, finely ground -- see note below
  • 1 ½ tsp Kosher salt

Instructions

  • Make the Caesar vinaigrette. Combine anchovies, 1 tsp Dijon, 1 tsp lemon zest, 3 Tbsp lemon juice, 2 Tbsp grated Parmigiano Reggiano, 1 Tbsp minced garlic, and ½ cup extra virgin olive oil in a medium bowl or mason jar with lid. Either whisk well or secure the lid and shake until well mixed.
  • Mix ingredients together. Place chicken in a large mixing bowl. Pour 6 Tbsp of the vinaigrette on top (reserving the rest for serving), then add 1 ½ tsp Kosher salt and ½ cup breadcrumbs (or finely ground cracker crumbs). Use your hands to thoroughly combine.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. The chicken needs to firm up a bit before portioning. Cover with plastic wrap, then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, though longer is fine. It will be easier to handle!
  • Portion the chicken patties. Use a large cookie scoop to portion the chicken into equal size patties. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, then use your hands to gently press down into patties about 1" thick.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F, then set a large skillet over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil.
  • Cook the patties. When hot, add chicken patties, working in batches and making sure not to crowd the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side, until light golden brown on each side. Transfer all partially cooked chicken patties to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Transfer to the pre-heated oven and cook an additional 10 minutes, or until an internal temperature of 165 F is reached.
  • Rest, then serve. Allow burgers to rest for 5 minutes, then serve with extra Caesar vinaigrette on top!

Notes

  • Nutrition facts include all of the Caesar vinaigrette, and will likely be lower if you don't use it all on the cooked burgers. Serving size is 2 chicken patties.
