Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the kumara (unpeeled) into 1cm fries. Place the fries on an oven tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Toss to coat, then bake until tender, 20-25 minutes. TIP: Cut the kumara to size so it cooks in time.
While the fries are baking, thinly slice 1/2 the tomato. Thinly slice 1/2 the cucumber on an angle. Tear 1/2 the ciabatta into 1cm chunks. In a medium bowl, combine the garlic aioli, Dijon mustard, grated Parmesan cheese and the water. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Set aside. Place your hand flat on top of each chicken breast and use a sharp knife to slice through horizontally to make two thin steaks.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the diced bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly golden, 2-3 minutes. Add the torn ciabatta and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and crisp, 5-6 minutes. Season to taste and transfer to a bowl.
In a second medium bowl, combine the lemon pepper spice blend and the salt. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken until browned and just cooked through, 2-4 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate. Place the burger buns directly on a wire rack in the oven and bake until heated through, 3 minutes. TIP: The chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside.
Reserve 2 portions of chicken for lunch. Pick the basil leaves. Slice the burger buns in half and spread the bases with some Caesar dressing (reserve the remaining dressing for lunch). Top with the remaining lemon pepper chicken, some cos lettuce mix, basil, tomato slices and cucumber slices. Serve with the kumara fries.
When you're ready to pack lunch, roughly chop the remaining tomato and cucumber. Thinly slice the reserved lemon pepper chicken. Divide the reserved Caesar dressing between two reusable containers, then top with the mixed salad leaves, chicken, tomato and cucumber. Divide the bacon croutons between two resealable plastic bags or airtight containers. At lunchtime, add the bacon croutons to the salad and toss to coat in the dressing.
