avocado-lime chicken burgers

Worried your child isn’t eating enough vegetables? Try sneaking some into the food they love !


These burgers are a prime example of slipping some veggies into your child’s food.  My kids ate this without complaining.  They had no idea that there was an avocado and red pepper in it.  Mission-accomplished.


I used homemade buns for these burgers.  As I already mentioned, I don’t like store-bought bread, buns, etc.  Freshly baked buns + avocado lime chicken patties = party in my mouth.   Totally loving the “fiesta in a burger.”


You will need:

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 Thai Green Chili, finely chopped
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • salt to taste

To assemble:

  • homemade or store-bought burger buns
  • lettuce
  • tomatoes

Chop onion, red pepper, and garlic in a food processor.

Heat oil in a pan, saute the onions, pepper, and garlic until the onions are slightly brown.

In a large bowl add the chopped avocado, lime juice, ground chicken, onions, pepper, garlic, chopped cilantro, chopped chili, cumin powder, black pepper, and salt.   Mix well and form patties.

Place the patties on preheated grill and cook for 4 mins on each side or until done.  Alternatively, you can pan-fry the patties.
