California Club Chicken Burgers

As you can tell, I’ve been on a bit of a burger kick lately.  I love burgers, don’t get me wrong, but for some reason, I don’t make them all that often.  I was brainstorming burger ideas when I thought of a sandwich I get at a local store that has chicken, bacon, avocado, and chipotle aioli.   Of course, I always get it sans aioli, since you know my distaste for mayo.  I decided to swap out the grilled chicken breast for a burger and the avocado for some guacamole and voila!

This burger was quite tasty and pretty healthy.  Yes, there is bacon on it, but just one slice per burger.  Guacamole/avocado is full of good fats, and I used chicken breast for the patties, so they were nice and lean.

1 lb. ground chicken
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 clove garlic, finely minced or pressed
3/4 tsp. kosher salt
ground pepper
4 thick cut slices of bacon, cooked and cut in half
1/2 cup guacamole or 1 sliced avocado
4 toasted buns

Lightly mix together the chicken, cumin, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper.  Form the mixture into 4 patties. Grill, pan-fry, or broil the patties until cooked through.  Top with 1 slice (2 pieces) of the cooked bacon and guacamole, and serve on toasted buns.
