Summer Chicken Burgers
This was a perfect taste of summer. I don't have a grill, or even a place to put one, so I did the whole thing on the stove.
Whoever said to include bacon was 100% correct. I cooked the bacon, then left the grease in the skillet and cooked everything else in the bacon grease. As the chicken was close to done, I stacked onions, bacon and then cheese on top of the breast and let the cheese melt.
Like others, I combined the mayo and avocado, plus some garlic powder, for a creamy, tangy finishing touch.
As for the chicken itself, I took one chicken breast and cut it in half so that I had 2 thin chicken patties (only made 2, just me and my husband). I then lightly sprinkled seasoned salt on both sides of the chicken. I think seasoning provides a little more interest to the flavor without overpower the other flavors in the "burger." I'm sure garlic powder, cajun seasoning or adobo powder would all work well too. Cooked in the bacon grease, the chicken was so juicy and flavorful.
I served it with sweet potato fries, corn on the cob and raw broccoli. It totally hit the spot.
