Chicken Cheddar and Guacamole Burgers


"Looks and tastes great. With the price of beef nowadays I needed a healthier and a little cheaper way to get my burger fix. You could use ground turkey instead of chicken, I would think. And toasting the buns adds another layer of flavor."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix ground chicken, 1/3 cup cilantro, Cheddar cheese, garlic, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.
  3. Cook patties on grill until the bottom is browned, 3 to 4 minutes; flip the burgers and top with a slice of Cheddar cheese. Continue cooking until no longer pink in the center, 1 to 2 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Transfer burgers to a plate to rest until juices are reabsorbed into the meat, about 3 minutes.
  4. Put burgers onto split buns and top with guacamole and cilantro.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This is gooooood, and I'm surprised! I hate, hate, hate dried out no flavor poultry burgers and admittedly really afraid of the end temp being 160 degrees... but determined to followed the dir...

The fat from the shredded cheese in the ground chicken is what makes this super moist. I did not add the onion, although it calls for it, since it was not mentioned in the instructions, and I a...

Awesome! I bought a 1 pound package of ground chicken, so I just used that instead of 1-1/2 pound, but kept everything else the same. I mixed these up the day before, formed them and put them in...

I love this recipe! However when making it I added one egg. My father used to own a hamburger place where he used to create his own patties. He said the egg helps the meat not to break or crack ...

A hit with the entire family! As most reviewers, I used a 1lb package of ground chicken and got 4 nice, thick patties. Omitted the jalapeno since the kidlet was eating it, but added in some anch...

Followed the recipe almost exactly. Only Had 1lb ground chicken on hand, and we left out the jalapeños. Grilled them on our stove top grill. They were absolutely fantastic. Already added into th...

Very good. Used only 1 lb of ground chicken and got 3 burgers. Directions don't say where to use the onions, I mixed in with the meat and it cooked up without any raw onion flavor.

No beef with this burger! Simply amazing! So moist and flavorful! I only used 1/2 a jalapeno pepper and the heat level was just right for us. The cooking time did take a little longer than s...

I used this as a base and added and subtracted for what I had on hand and what we like. I used the cheese and some seasonings. Also added cooked bacon.

Wow! These were fantastic! I made them in a skillet rather than on the grill, and put the lid on partway through cooking. The flavors are amazing together. So good! We will make these frequ...
