Chicken, bacon and avocado is the ultimate combo, and it tastes even more delicious in burger form. The taste of summer!

Serves Prep Time 15 Minutes Cook Time 15 Minutes

Ingredients

4 burger buns (We love MacKenzie Sprouted Grains)
4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (We love Waitoa)
Olivado Avocado oil for cooking
8 rashers streaky bacon (We love Hellers)
1/4 cup store bought aioli
25g feta
1/2 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 small avocado
2 tbsp chopped red onion
Salad leaves ( We love Leaderbrand )
Fresh lemon wedges to serve

Method

  1. Heat up the BBQ or a frying pan on a medium high heat. Place the chicken thighs on a plate, season and drizzle with oil. Cook for 4-5 minutes each side, or until the chicken is completely cooked through. Just before the chicken is cooked, place the bacon on the BBQ and cook until crispy.
  2. In a bowl, mash the avocado with a folk. Mix the aioli, feta and mustard. Stir well and season if desired, then set aside.
  3. Build the burgers. Split the buns in half. Spread the avocado mixture generously on the bottom half. Top with some red onion, salad leaves, a chicken thigh, two bacon rashers and more avocado mixture, then finish with the top half of the burger bun. Insert a cocktail stick to put together if liked.  Serve with fresh lemon wedges.
