For the Sauce:

1/3 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon

1 tablespoon capers, drained

1 anchovy fillet

1 clove garlic, minced

5 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/3 cup sour cream

For the Sandwiches:

4 thin chicken cutlets (4 to 5 ounces each)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

4 hamburger buns, split 

Sliced tomatoes, cooked thick-cut bacon and Boston lettuce, for topping


  1. Preheat a grill to medium high. Make the green goddess sauce: Combine the mayonnaise, chives, parsley, tarragon, capers, anchovy, garlic, lemon juice and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a small food processor. Puree until bright green and smooth. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in the sour cream. Season with salt and pepper. Thin with water if needed. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Make the sandwiches: Season the chicken with salt and pepper and rub with the olive oil. Grill, flipping once, until well marked on both sides and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove to a plate. Grill the buns until toasted.
  3. Serve the chicken on the buns with the green goddess sauce, tomatoes, bacon and lettuce.
