We've taken all the elements of a chicken Caesar salad and popped it in a burger. Not only is it delicious, it's ready in 15 mins - win!
- 2 skinless chicken breast fillets
- ½ tbsp olive oil
- juice of ½ lemon
- 1 Little Gem lettuce, shredded
- 4 tbsp Caesar dressing (we used ready-made chilled)
- 2 tbsp Parmesan, grated, plus a few shavings
- 2 ciabatta rolls or ½ ciabatta loaf, cut into 2 pieces
- 1 small garlic clove, halved (optional)
- 1 tomato, sliced
- 3 anchovy fillets (optional)
Lay the chicken breasts on a chopping board and cut through the breast horizontally; take care not to cut all the way through to the other side. Open out each breast so that it resembles a butterfly.
Heat a griddle pan to medium heat. Season the chicken and brush with the olive oil. Cook for about 4 minutes each side or until cooked through. Set aside to rest; squeeze over the lemon juice.
Meanwhile, put the lettuce in a bowl; toss with 2 tablespoons Caesar dressing and the grated Parmesan.
Split open the ciabatta and toast on the griddle pan for a minute each side. Rub the cut surface with the garlic, if using, and drizzle ½ tablespoon of dressing onto the bottom half of each toasted roll. Add a few slices of tomato, then the lettuce. Top with the chicken, Parmesan shavings and the anchovies, if using, then drizzle each with another ½ tablespoon of dressing. Top with the roll lids and serve.
