Healthy and delicious jalapeno chicken burgers with avocado are perfect for summer cookouts this season! They are a healthier burger alternative with just as much flavor as traditional burgers – and they are husband approved!
In a food processor or with a knife, finely mince garlic and jalapeno. Add to a mixing bowl.
Add chicken, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix well with your hands and form into 4 patties. And place on a plate. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
Heat a grill pan or skillet on medium-high heat. Spray with oil. If you are cooking them outdoors, you can place a cast-iron skillet directly on the grill, or you can place a piece of foil or a grilling mat down on the grates before adding the patties to prevent them from falling in through the grates.
Cook patties for about 5 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 5 minutes, or until they reach an internal temperature of 165° F. You may use a grill press if you have one. Add cheese if using and continue to cook, covered, until cheese melts.
While burgers are cooking, toast buns (optional). Place a burger on each bottom bun. Top with avocado slices and desired toppings, then top bun.
