Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4 people


For Aioli Sauce (double up for extra dipping sauce)

  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

For Oven Baked French Fries

  • 4 large washed russet potatoes, cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried basil or your favourite fry seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese optional

For California Chicken Burgers + Serving

  • 1 box Janes Pub Style Chicken Burgers
  • 1 pkg brioche hamburger buns or your favourite type
  • 1 large avocado sliced
  • 1 pile washed romaine or iceberg lettuce the crispier the better
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
  • sharp cheddar cheese slices optional


  1. Preheat your oven according to your Janes Pub Style Chicken Burgers Box (425 degrees)

  2. Toss sliced russet potatoes in a bowl with olive oil, seasoning and parmesan cheese

  3. Lay potato slices and Janes Pub Style Chicken Burgers in a single layer on a baking or pizza sheet, for this recipe we used 4 burgers but you can add as few or as many as you need

  4. Pop both trays into the oven and set timer for a 10 minute flip reminder

  5. In a small bowl mix together mayonnaise, garlic cloves, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste, mix well and slowly drizzle in olive oil. Adjust seasoning as needed, then place in the fridge to chill.

  6. If you’re toasting your buns, this would be the time to do it! Brush any open sides of your hamburger buns with melted butter and place in a medium-low heat frying pan and flip every 10-20 seconds. Keep a watchful eye, they can burn quickly.

  7. By now your timer should have dinged, flip the fries and Janes Pub Style Chicken Burgers and reset the time for an additional 15 minutes.

  8. Next up is prepping your toppings. Lay out your toppings on a cutting or serving tray to serve at the table, our favourites include avocado, red onions, lettuce, a sharp cheese and if we’re feeling fancy, some crispy bacon.

  9. Enjoy your last few minutes before the dinner rush begins when the final timer dings

  10. Assemble your delicious chicken burgers and enjoy!
