Chicken Cheddar and Guacamole Burgers

Recipe by  

"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."

Original recipe makes 4 burgers Change Servings


  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.

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 directions exact since I planned to review ... baby!... The spices did the trick! I made them thick and in my cast iron to 160 mark. I can even say they came out almost juicy... I served the guac on the side and we enjoyed every bite with a side salad, felt healthy and satisfied! Try this one they are really good.

Excellent. The whole family loved, including the picky kids. I excluded the jalapeños inside the burgers, and let those who wanted them add the peppers as a topping to their burger. I also cooked them in my grill pan instead of the outdoor grill. I will definitely make these again. Also, my grocer only sells the ground chicken in one pound increments, so I used two pounds of meat, and just eye-balled the cheese, onion and seasoning. I made 8 patties with the two pounds of meat.

These were great! I used ground turkey instead of chicken and they were very tasty. Super easy, full of flavor, and relatively healthy. We will definitely be making these again.

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 into the fridge to allow the flavors to blend before cooking them tonight (this also firmed them up a bit). These had a great explosion of flavor that we all loved. I also used homemade guacamole, and hubby had salsa on his b/c he doesn't care for guac. These were a hit at dinner tonight...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

This is the first time I have used ground chicken in a burger without the addition of another protein added to it. We LOVED these! They were juicy & all the flavors worked perfectly together! I made them as sliders instead of full sized hamburgers and cooked them in a heavy skillet, but, other than that made exactly as the recipe stated. Huge hit with my family and I will be making these again.
