This recipe is way too simple for avocado lovers to miss. With hunks of avocado mixed in the chicken burger patty, you will get an awesome surprise of creamy avocado in each bite!

Because avocado is packed with heart healthy fats, you do need to be cautious of the portion size. Limit your healthy fats servings in a day if you are watching your weight. (Ex: Skip the almonds if you are having avocado.) A good serving size is about 1/8 of a slice…so it’s pretty limited :)

For this recipe, I used half an avocado and made 4 burger patties. This means it because 1/8 of a slice per burger patty! See what I did there?!
