I have made these many times now.  I love them with ground chicken but ground turkey will work in a pinch.  (consider increasing  your garlic, salt and pepper when using ground turkey to kick up the flavor a bit).

This has turned out to be the most viewed post on my blog…to say I didn’t see that coming is an understatement. The reason for it’s popularity is because it is so Paleo and Whole30 friendly, not to mention super easy.

  1. I usually cook these on a grill pan indoors, it helps keep the meat moist…but you can certainly grill these outdoors. Just be careful not to overcook.
  2. When mixing the avocados and forming the patties – go gently to keep the avocado chunks intact. Using a more firm avocado will help as well.
  3. These will keep for several days in your fridge. I have frozen them as well, and the avocado holds up really great! Wrap individually and store in freezer safe ziploc bag.
  4. Great add in is chopped Poblano (for a little heat) or chopped Jalapeno (for more heat!)


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 large ripe avocado – cut into chunks
  • 1 chopped clove of garlic
  • ⅓ cup Panko crumbs or Almond meal (to keep it Paleo friendly )
  • 1 minced Poblano or Jalapeño pepper (optional but recommended)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  1. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and toss gently.
  2. Shape into desired size patties and grill inside or out!
