INSTRUCTIONS

  1. For the avocado mayo, combine all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Prepare either a grill or a grill pan and set to high heat. Add avocado oil to the grill pan if using.
  3. Mix the ground chicken with the seasonings, spinach, coconut flour, lime juice, and avocado oil until well combined. Gently fold in the avocado slices, being careful to not smash them.
  4. Form the chicken into 4-5 burgers, spacing out the avocado to make sure it’s evenly dispersed.
