Avocado Chicken Burgers


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 large ripe avocado – cut into chunks
  • 1 clove chopped of garlic
  • 1/3 cup Panko crumbs or Almond meal to keep it Paleo and Whole30 friendly
  • 1 minced Poblano or Jalapeño pepper optional but recommended
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Add all ingredients to a large bowl and toss gently.
  • Shape into desired size patties.
  • Grill 4-5 minutes on each side on an indoor grill pan or an outside grill at medium heat or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees


  • I like to put my burger on half a mashed sweet potato and top with salsa.
  • Could also consider adding fresh cilantro to the burgers when mixing the ingredients.
