Phil's chicken caesar burger

Earlier, Phil nipped over to London’s new Amazon fresh store, showing us the new cashless way to shop. Now, he’s back to whip up a budget friendly and flavoursome dish using the ingredients he bought from his supermarket sweep!

Phil's chicken caesar burger

Serves 4



2 medium egg yolks, yellower the better

1 clove garlic crushed

1 tbsp any vinegar

3 tsp Dijon mustard

4-6 salted anchovy fillets

Pinch black pepper ground

200ml extra virgin olive oil, roughly

Touch of cold water, approx


1 egg white

2 tsp cornflour or any starch

4 x 115g boneless chicken breast, free of skin and sliced in half. 

6-8 tbsp Panko breadcrumbs

2 tbsp olive oil

75g unsalted butter

1x Little Gem, lettuce

8 slices of streaky bacon, cooked until crispy

150g croutons, roughly crushed

75-85g roughly, long shaved Parmesan slices

2 medium, ripe tasty tomatoes, sliced

4 large sesame burger buns


1. For the dressing: place the egg yolks, garlic, vinegar, mustard, anchovy, black pepper, and blitz in a liquidiser until smooth. Then add the oil in a thin stream to emulsify. If the dressing is too thick then add a touch of water. Check the seasoning.

2. The dressing should coat the leaves nicely but not be too thick, make sure the lettuce is well drained.

3. For the chicken: Whisk the egg white and cornflour together really well. Add the chicken slices and coat well. 

4. Drain and dust each side of the chicken breast with a few breadcrumbs, pat down well.

5. Heat a medium frying pan and heat the oil and butter, then sauté the slices of chicken until just cooked, approximately  2-3 minutes on each side, and then keep warm.

6. Once cooked, pop the chicken into a bowl along with a few lettuce leaves, bacon pieces, a few croutons and Parmesan slices, then mix lightly with the dressing.

7. Place the chicken, lettuce and tomatoes into a toasted burger bun, layered nicely.

8. Serve with skinny fries
