Avocado Chicken Burgers

When I say that these are the best chicken burgers I have EVER made, I am not exaggerating. My husband (who has been so good and patient as I try out new recipes) even said, “Reg, these are the most amazing burgers you have ever made.” We think it was the avocado. Guess who else loved them…BOTH kids.  The little guy eats everything so I wasn’t surprised but my daughter does NOT like avocado.  After she ate the burger, I told her what was in it and she just laughed at me.

Avocado Chicken Burgers {made 5 medium sized patties}

1/2 lb ground chicken

1 avocado, cut into cubes

1/2 cup bread crumbs {I toasted some whole grain bread and made my own}

1 clove of garlic, grated

1/4 tsp ground cumin

juice from half a lime

1 tblsp of fresh chopped cilantro

salt and pepper to taste


Mix breadcrumbs, cumin, and salt and pepper in a bowl.  Add in ground chicken, garlic, lime juice, and fresh cilantro.  Mix well.  Fold in avocado cubes, be careful not to over mix!

Heat grill and cook over medium heat until done–about 5-7 minutes per side. Serve on a bun or over a huge salad.
