Zippy Chicken Burgers

I'm not the hugest fan of ground turkey. It has a tendency to be on the dry side I think. I use it, but prefer chicken. Of course I have never seen ground chicken at the store, so I figured "why not make my own"? I love love love chicken burgers! Especially when there is tons of  flavor!

Burger ingredients

1 lb chicken breast
1- 7 oz can drained diced green chilies
1/2 white onion
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
2-4 cloves garlic

Sauce ingredients

2 avocado
juice of 1/2 lime
dash of salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
chopped cilantro to taste


Place chicken in a food processor and grind. Add in the remaining burger ingredients and chop until chicken is fully ground and onions and garlic are fully chopped. Make into patties. Cook in a cast iron skillet  over md/high for 4 min per side or until browned. Move skillet to pre heated 400 degree oven to finish cooking. About 10 minutes. While the burgers are in the oven mash avocado, lime, salt, chili powder and cilantro together in a bowl. Serve on whole wheat buns or pita with avocado sauce, onion, lettuce or whatever toppings you would like!
