Chicken Caesar Burgers

Spring is here and I'm absolutely loving the daylight when I leave work. The temps may still be a bit chilly, but I can feel the shift coming. Grilling nights and dinners on the deck aren't too far off! Although I haven't been blogging much, we've been adhering to our goal to try at least one new recipe a week. This leaves me with tons to share on here. These chicken caesar burgers are from last summer. I'm looking forward to trying them again soon. I found this recipe on Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life.

You will need:
*1 pound ground chicken
*1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
*1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs
*3 tablespoons light Caesar dressing
*2 cloves garlic, minced
*1 tablespoon dried parsley
*1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
*1 tablespoon lemon juice

Optional toppings:
*freshly grated Parmesan cheese
*extra Caesar dressing
*Romaine lettuce
*red onion, sliced

1. In a bowl, combine all the needed ingredients (not toppings!) and mix well. Form the mixture into four patties, slightly indenting each center. Refrigerate the now formed burgers on a plate for about 30 minutes.

2. Grill chilled burgers over medium-high heat, 6-8 minutes on each side. Top cooked chicken burgers with desired toppings. Serve atop a salad or on hamburger buns.
