Instructions

  1. Mix the ground chicken with scallions, garlic, egg, salt, and pepper.
  2. Divide the burger mixture into equal portions, one per serving. Shape with your hands into burger patties. Either you make one big per serving or two smaller ones.
  3. Fry the onion rings and bacon in a frying pan until the bacon is crispy and the onion has softened. Remove from pan.
  4. Add the chicken burgers to the same pan used to fry the onions and the bacon, without removing the bacon grease. Fry on both sides until golden and cooked through, 165°F (75°C).
  5. Lay one lettuce leaf on a plate. Assemble the burger by placing the bacon, chicken patties, avocado, and cooked onion rings on top of the lettuce leaf. Fold the lettuce leaf over to become the lettuce "bun."

Tip

Feel free to add more spices to your meat, like garlic powder, a dash of tamari or paprika.

A dollop of mayo or mustard (sugar-free!) is a nice addition if you wish.

You can also use ground turkey, beef or pork.
