Tangy Chicken Burger

Tangy Chicken Burger

This recipe is perfect for when you want to lighten up your burger routine. These tangy burgers work great on the grill or in a non-stick skillet. And the secret ingredient, a little bit of mayo, keeps them from drying out even if you use only ground white meat chicken breast.

If you need a lower potassium version, leave off the avocado.

The other great part of this recipe is that the final product is delicious, without adding a bun or a slice of cheese. That keeps it as a low sodium burger option.
