The last day of Grill Week has arrived. For the 7th and final recipe, I decided to do another burger, this time with chicken. I usually stick with beef burgers, so this was a little outside of the norm for me. I was pleased with this tasty and guilt-free meal! It’s a flavorful burger topped with guacamole (my favorite). I served it with a side of Quiona Salad to complete my summertime meal.

From: Iowa Girl Eats
1lb ground chicken
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 lime, cut in half
4 slices pepper jack cheese
4 buns, toasted
For the guacamole:
salt & pepper
1. Combine chicken, green onions, bell pepper, cilantro, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes and juice of half a lime in a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined, then form into 4 patties and spray each side generously with non-stick spray.
2. Heat a large grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Grill burgers for 3-4 minutes a side, or until cooked all the way through. Place a slice of cheese on top of each burger, then cover with a large pot lid, and allow to melt for about a minute. Remove burgers to a plate, tent with foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Place each burger on a toasted thin bun, then top with guacamole.
3. For the guacamole: Mash all ingredients together with a potato masher or fork.
I hope you all enjoyed Grill Week! If I have another week filled with recipes, what would you like to see? Breakfast, cake, cookies, anything else….?
