Chicken Burgers with Avocado Relish

Chicken Burgers with Avocado Relish

Infused with tangy buttermilk and grainy Dijon, and topped with a chunky avocado relish, this family-friendly dinner will happily remind everyone that summer is less than three months away.

You’ll Need

  • 1lb. ground chicken
  • 1 Tbsp grainy Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ cup panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 whole-grain buns, any type
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Suggested garnishes: lettuce, bacon, tomato, onion, and pickles

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Combine the panko and the buttermilk in a small bowl, and stir to combine. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes, or until the bread crumbs are softened.
  • 2
    In a medium-size mixing bowl add the chicken, mustard, egg yolk, oregano, and garlic. Add the panko and buttermilk, and, using your hands, mix everything together until it is well combined.
  • 3
    Divide the mixture into four, and with dampened hands, shape each section into patties. Place the burgers on a parchment-lined baking sheet and place in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • 4
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and bake the chicken burgers for 15–20 minutes, or until they are cooked through completely.
  • 5
    While the chicken is cooking, place the avocado, lemon juice, garlic and mayonnaise in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until combined but still somewhat chunky.
  • 6
    When the burgers are cooked, place each patty on a bun and top it with some of the avocado relish. Garnish the burger as desired.
