Fantastic Chicken Burgers

This is a recipe from that I made recently that came out great! The ground chicken burger had just the right amount of spice and was not dry at all.  I made up a small batch of guacamole with the leftover mix to use as a topping for the burger.  

Mix together the ground chicken,  guacamole seasoning mix, chopped cilantro, onion and lime juice

  and form into patties.

 Cook these on preheated grill approximately 5 minutes on each side. Be careful not to overcook!


I also topped each burger with slices of red onion , tomato and lettuce. The recipe called for ciabatta bread but since I couldn't find it at the store I just used regular buns.  What a super yummy, healthy burger!  Delicious!

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 (1 ounce) package guacamole seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 8 slices ciabatta bread
  • 1/4 cup prepared salsa, divided
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the ground chicken, guacamole seasoning, half the cilantro, lime juice, and minced onion until thoroughly combined. Form the chicken mixture into 4 patties. Reserve the other half of the cilantro for garnish.
  3. Grill the chicken burgers on the preheated grill until the meat is no longer pink inside, the juices run clear, and the burgers show browned grill marks, 5 to 8 minutes per side.
  4. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place slices of ciabatta bread onto the grill to toast, about 1 minute per side. About 1 minute before the burgers are done, top each burger with a slice of Cheddar cheese, and let melt.
  5. Serve chicken burgers on the toasted ciabatta bread, topped with about 1 tablespoon of salsa and about 1 tablespoon of the reserved chopped cilantro.
