Sensational Chicken Burgers

I created these burgers for a neighborhood picnic. I wanted to make sure that I was going to bring something healthy as well as tasty.

1/2 pound ground chicken breast

1/2 pound ground chicken (mixed light and dark)

1/4 cup chopped-sun dried tomatoes (not in oil)

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat Italian parsley

4 cloves garlic, mined

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

1. Mix all ingredients together and form 4 patties. Grill 3-4 minutes on each side and serve with Guacamole.

 

Guacamole:

2 Avocados- about 1 pound or 1 cup mashed

2 tablespoons chopped tomato

2 tablespoons finely minced or grated onion

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley

1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt

 

1. Cut avocado in half and scoop flesh out with a spoon. Place flesh in medium bowl and mash with fork.

2. Add lime juice, tomato, onion, garlic, cilantro, and salt. Blend well. Place avocado pit back in the guacamole and cover it tightly to keep it from browning.
