Recipe Time! Grilled Avocado Chicken Burger

It was about a year ago that I became OBSESSED with avocados. They are one of my favorite fruits (it's a fruit, right?). I try to incorporate avocados in all of my sandwiches, salads, wraps, tacos, etc. Now, I found a way to put them in a burger. And I don't mean on top of the burger meat, but IN the meat itself. It is magically delicious!

Try it out!!!

Grilled Avocado Chicken Burger
Makes 4-5 burgers


  • 1 lb Skinless Chicken Breast (shredded or whole)
  • 1 Chopped Ripe Avocado
  • Lemon or Lime Juice (optional)
  • 1 Chopped Garlic Clove
  • 2/3 C Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs
  • 4-5 Whole Wheat Burger Buns (optional)

  1. If you chose to start with shredded chicken, you can skip to step 2. I shredded my own chicken by placing in my Crock-Pot and adding a half cup of water. Cook high for about 2 hours or until chicken is fully cooked and shreds. Remove from pot and drain excess water. Set aside in it's own bowl.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add chopped avocado and drizzle on lemon or lime juice (will add flavor and prevent avocado from browning over time). Mix in chopped garlic and bread crumbs. Add shredded chicken to bowl and mix well so all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Form 4-5 patties and place on grill or skillet (my skillet was set on 400 degrees). Let cook for 3-5 minutes per side.
  4. Serve on whole wheat bun.
 Don't let it's looks fool you! It is really good! I plan on marinating the chicken next time around in a little bit lemon juice and garlic so it is more flavorful!

Tell me what you think and please, share with me your avocado recipes!
