This recipe makes a nice light burger that’s juicy, delicious from the fat, and a nice change from beef. It’s perfect with a sriracha mayo or asian-inspired dipping sauce, too.

Avocado Chicken Burger
Based off the Chicken Avocado Burger recipe by Laughing Spatula
1 pound ground chicken
1 avocado, chopped
Juice of half a lime
2 tsp. granulated garlic
2 tsp. onion powder
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 c. – 1/2 c. almond flour
2 big pinches Kosher salt & a few grinds black pepper
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
Knead all ingredients together but the almond flour and avocado chunks. Your mixture should look really wet. Add half the almond flour, check to see if your mixture holds together (loosely is fine). Add the rest if needed.
Once your mixture is burger-able, gently fold the avocado into the mix.
Portion into 4 burger patties and pan fry over medium-high in 2 Tbsp. coconut oil 3-4 minutes per side (until cooked through and browned).
