Avocado Chicken Burger

There is a possibility that chicken burgers will be unpleasant and unappealing by their very nature. However, not these! The fact that these chicken burger patties have crispy golden edges while still having a juicy interior is something that you are going to absolutely enjoy.

Given that it is stacked high on soft, toasted buns and topped with a substantial amount of creamy avocado, this burger has the potential to be the one that you have been dreaming of all along. (Perfect for grilling steaks for a delicious meal.) There is a prevalent belief that chicken burgers are flavorless and dry. This view is pervasive. It is possible that this is due to the fact that chicken burgers are frequently offered on menus as a healthier option than beef burgers, which are notorious for the amount of fat that they contain.

In addition to being flavorless, underseasoned, overdone, and dry, the patties are packed into a burger bun and topped with another set of ingredients that are as boring.

It is the combination of parmesan, garlic, and sage powder that gives these burgers made with ground chicken their incredible flavor. Sage powder is the secret ingredient that makes these burgers so delicious! Considering that they are golden on the outside and juicy on the inside, there is no way that anyone could ever accuse them of having a bland quality!!!

Just a few notes on some of the items:

Ground chicken (mince) – the flavourings in the chicken patties work equally well with turkey or pork.

Parmesan adds great flavour into the patties. It doesn’t make it taste cheesy, it adds umami(which is the food-tech term for savoury-ness).

Sage is the herb flavouring in these chicken patties. It adds an earthy flavour that really gives these chicken burgers the edge! If you don’t have or can’t find ground sage, thyme is a terrific alternative, OR using celery salt in place of ordinary salt.

For the purpose of making the overall eating experience more satisfying, I have incorporated a substantial amount of avocado into this recipe. In my opinion, avocado is the element that draws the entire burger together, causing everything to come together in such a beautiful way.

To be more specific, the chicken burger patties themselves are the focus of today’s meal; therefore, you are free to experiment with a wide variety of other burger toppings. What you should or should not put on your burger is something that you should never let anyone tell you! The following are some suggestions:
