  1. Mix chili powder, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, cumin, minced garlic, and black pepper together in a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkle 3/4 of the chili powder mixture over ground chicken in a large bowl. Add egg; mix well and shape into 4 patties.
  3. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Grill patties until browned and juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Mash avocado in a small bowl; season with garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  5. Mix remaining chili powder mixture, sour cream, and shredded cabbage together in a bowl to make coleslaw.
  6. Toast Kaiser rolls lightly on the grill. Place chicken patties on the buns. Top each patty with mashed avocado, a large scoop of coleslaw, and sliced tomato.

These were good and almost tasted like beef with all of the seasonings. The one thing I think would have been better is to use mayo instead of sour cream for the slaw.

I made this as the recipe stated, very good, will make this again...!! Thanks Niki,

I used half the chili powder and found the burgers had just the right spice for me. I also used ground veal with this recipe.

These chicken burgers were amazing, would definitely make them again. Top notch.
