Ingredients
Burgers:
  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 Tbsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
Topping:
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • ¼ tsp salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 4 slices part-skim colby jack or cheddar cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the burger ingredients until well-incorporated and use your hands to form into four patties, about 5 inches in diameter each.
  2. Preheat grill to 400 F. Grill burgers 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through, flipping halfway through.
  3. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet. Once hot, add the onions and cook 4-5 minutes or until softened. Add the bell pepper slices and cook 15-20 minutes or until very tender and slightly caramelized.
  4. Mash the avocado with the salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  5. To assemble, spread avocado over the bottoms of each bun. Top with burger, cheese, and pepper mixture. Serve immediately.
