I love all things avocado. Like nearly an obsession. I found these super cute PJs from amazon that are avocado and I am dying to get them! But the food is also just about the greatest thing ever! It’s high in monounsaturated fatty acid, a healthy fat, contains fiber, potassium, and several other vitamins! I will add avocado to any meal, so when I switched from beef to chicken to be a little healthier with my burgers, it only made sense to keep it!
This recipe, depending on how you construct your final burger, is whole 30 and paleo compliant!
This recipe came from Laughing Spatula! They made Chicken Avocado Burgers, but I didn’t have ground chicken, so made a few alterations! Either way, chicken and avocado = super yummy dinner 🙂
– 2 chicken breast (or one half to one breast per burger)
– 1/4 tsp ground garlic
– 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
– whole wheat bread/burger bun
– toppings of choice (pickles, tomatoes, cheese, spinach, etc.)
1. Sprinkle ground garlic and Worcestershire sauce over chicken.
2. Grill the chicken breast. I like to do this on my indoor grill (George Foreman), but an outdoor grill works too! Cook on one side for about 5 minutes, then flip. Cook for about 5 minutes. Check to see if cooking is complete by using a thermometer in the center of the breast, if it reads 165 degrees you’re good, or by cutting the breast open. It should be completely white on the inside. If you see any pink, keep cooking!
3. If the chicken is large enough, you might be able to cut it in half and use it for two burgers. This is obviously dependent on how much chicken you want!
4. If you can have/want dairy, place cheese on the chicken while it is still on the grill for a minute or two. This will make your cheese melt to the chicken! (Please note that adding cheese makes this not Whole 30 compliant!)
5. Put the chicken on bread/bun if you’re having grain, or use two lettuce leaves as your bun. Add all your fixings, and of course, avocado! I like to fix mine as if it were a regular beef burger. (Again, please note that having bread makes this not Whole 30 compliant!)
6. Bon Appétit!
