Ground Chicken Taco Burgers

« My husband and I are trying to add more variety to our diets, and cut back on red meat, so I came up with this ground chicken burger, and it is delish! I used my George Foreman grill to cook them. I served them with the spicy baked sweet potato fries found on this Website. They make a nice substitution for a regular cheeseburger and French fries. »


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 (1 ounce) package dry taco seasoning mix
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 wheat hamburger buns, toasted
  • 4 slices pepperjack cheese
  • 1 avocado – peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 1/2 cup salsa, or to taste


Prep : 15  m   Cook : 10  m   Ready In : 25  m


  1. Preheat outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil grill grate, and place about 4 inches from heat source.
  2. Mix the ground chicken, onion, garlic, taco seasoning, and egg together in a bowl until thoroughly blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide chicken mixture evenly and form into 4 soft patties.
  3. Cook the chicken patties on the preheated grill until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear, 5 to 8 minutes per side, depending on thickness. To serve, place each patty on one half of a hamburger bun, top with a slice of cheese, avocado slices, and desired amounts of jalapeno peppers and salsa. Cover with remaining half of bun.
