If you liked my Healthy Chicken Balls then you will LOVE these low carb chicken burgers!  I discovered these by chance when I had way too many ripe avocados and needed to use them before they were wasted.  I had never even thought of using avocado in burger patties and was a little skeptical that it would actually work.  But, these chicken burger patties are perfectly creamy and filling without any unnecessary ingredients.

These low carb chicken burgers freeze well, are perfect for little people as they are super healthy, and are totally dairy and gluten free.  They are also great for those watching their carb intake and make a nice change from grilled chicken.

I made mine into a bun-less burger using lettuce, tomato, cucumber, spring onion and avocado, which was super delish and totally healthy.  The little man had his with steamed broccoli, corn and carrot, and certainly enjoyed it!  I hope you do too ­čÖé
