Stuff You'll Need 

  • ½ of a red onion - dicey-diced
  • 1 lb. of ground chicken
  • 1 ½ tsp. of chili powder
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 medium-sized avocado - dicey-diced
  • The juice of 1 lime (or about 2 tbsp. of lime juice
  • As much cheese curds as you’d like….because you are gonna nibble on them while you cook

Optional Salsa Sauce:

  • 1 container of salsa
  • 1 container of sour cream

How to Make It

  • Combine half of the red onion, the egg white, 1 tsp. of the chili powder, and the ground chicken. Shape into 4 burgers and then refrigerate for about 10 minutes.
  • While waiting, combine the avocado, cucumber, lime juice, remaining onion, and remaining chili powder. Divide that equally on 4 plates.
  • Mix the salsa and sour cream to your desired consistency. I like mine more creamy than salsa-y.
  • Spray a big ass skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
  • Cook each burger for 5 minutes in the skillet.
  • Flip the burgers over and add a few cheese curds to the top of each. Cover the skillet and cook for 5 more minutes or until cheese is melty (and chicken isn’t pink).
  • Plop the burgers on top of the salads. Add a dollop of the salsa sauce.
  • Eat it.
