Chicken-Avocado Burgers

These Chicken-Avocado Burgers could also be called Avocado-Chicken Burgers - they have about the same amount of Avocado as they do Chicken. I don't know what had gotten into me, but I was really wanting the Avocado flavor to come through. Well, it did. But not in a bad way. I think Avocado is awesome and was loving it!!

I love finding new ways to cook with Avocado and am so glad to have given this a try. It was a meal the whole family approved of - which, with 2 picky eaters, is enough to make me jump for joy. When the kids like something, it gets put on a list of things to make again, and this was one of them. Hope you enjoy!

Chicken-Avocado Burgers
1lb ground chicken
2 medium avocados, cubed
2 green onions, chopped
½ tablespoon chili pepper flakes
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
1 egg, beaten
½ cup breadcrumbs, seasoned or not
⅛ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper
1. Mix all ingredients together in bowl.
2. Form patties and place on plate. Let chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
3. Cook the patties however you would cook regular hamburgers. The trick is to let the patties cook long enough before flipping them or there could be a huge, inedible mess created. I speak from experience! To know when done, I cut one open to check or you can use a meat thermometer and make sure it has reached 165 degrees Farenheit.
