Wasn’t sure what to make for the celebration of July 4th and with the World Cup going on, I didn’t have much time. So I decided to make a simple and quick chicken burger. Instead of Mayonnaise to smear on the bun, I used mashed Hass avocados. Try and let me know how you liked it!!!!
Chicken Burger w/Avocado
4 chicken breasts
1 tablespoon of honey
2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard (must be Dijon, as the regular would ruin the taste)
1/4 cup of Balsamic Vinegar
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil for the pan
1/4 cup of Red Wine
1 teaspoons of Tarragon
1 teaspoon of Coriander
1 Hass Avocado (mashed)
8 leaves of fresh basil
4 Hamburger Buns or Gluten Free Udi’s Hamburger Buns can be used
In a very small bowl, mix the honey, mustard, coriander and tarragon and set aside. Heat a skillet or pan on medium heat and add the olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Now top each chicken breast with the flavor mixture you mixed earlier and add the chicken to the pan. Place the chicken in the pan and add the red wine. Cook the chicken about 7 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the chicken.
While the chicken is cooking, take the avocado and mash it till you get the consistency of guacamole.
Once the chicken is cooked, spread the avocado on the hamburger buns, add the 2 leaves of basil, the chicken and you’re ready to eat!
