  8. 1 tsp sea salt
  9. 1/2 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)

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