Karina’s Lean Avocado & Chicken Burgers!


This burger is great for your health. Get some into your belly and enjoy 🙂



  • 500 g lean chicken mince
  • 1 very small pink or red onion, diced finely
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 200 g peeled sweet potato, grated finely
  • 1/12 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons of fresh and roughly chopped parsley, stalks removed


  • Sweet chilli sauce to serve
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil, to line baking tray
  • 1 handful of fresh rocket leaves to serve
  • 4 crusty and fresh low GI rolls e.g. wholemeal, soy & linseed, or any Low GI bread rolls you like.
  • 1 medium avocado to serve, sliced thinly.


Preheat your oven to 200°C.

While your oven is preheating, place all your mixture ingredients into a large bowl, then mix well using a wooden spoon. Once your mixture is well combined, mould your mixture into four large patties, then set aside.

Line your baking tray using olive oil, ensuring your baking tray is cool to the touch and is not hot. Place your four large patties onto your lined baking tray, then place into your preheated oven and bake, for 35 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Once cooked, turn your oven to ‘off.’

Compiling the Beauty:

Lightly toast your fresh bread rolls, then cut each roll in half. Place a few rocket leaves on the base of your bread roll. Place one chicken patty on top of your rocket. Top with your avocado, a dollop of sweet chilli sauce, then close your burger with the crispy top.

Repeat with the other three burgers.

Serves 4

    Fabulous Karina – Do you mince your own meat? I have been thinking of buying mincer, but only have a small kitchen (and small budget) Do you have any recommendations/advice.
    I am definitely going to make this (maybe without the bun!)

      Hey lindaravello 🙂

      I rarely mince my own meat. I’ll only mince my own meat if I bought a huge amount and I wanted to freeze the meat. The mincer I use, when/if I use one, is an old vintage mincer my Mum has, so, unfortunately, I don’t have any good recommendations. That old mincer my Mum has, is build tough as bricks though and I bet it would take a huge amount of effort for that mincer to buckle!

      Thanks for your kind words!

      Have a lovely weekend!

        Thanks Karina – I’ll do a bit of market research – you too have a great weekend – weather is pretty panats here at the moment, Autumn seems to have arrived very early this year…..


      • FOOD IS LIFE! says:

        You’re welcome, lindaravello. Good luck with your researching and I hope the weather there gets better 🙂

        It’s heaps hot here in Australia, as it already feels like summer, when it’s only spring. Good thing, the garden loves spring!

        Have fun and take care!



      • lindaravello says:

        Yes, we are hanging on to summer – so still in salad days, but autumn will soon bite, I am sure.
        This is the thing that I miss most living in the city – not having a garden, only window boxes (did you see my post for window box salad ha ha ha, it’s true)
        I love spring the most – so full of hope x


      • FOOD IS LIFE! says:

        Totally agree, lindaravello!

        I love your descriptions…”salad days’ and ‘autumn will soon bite’ you’re very creative, which is great 🙂

        I sure did and it was fantastic and very useful for those living in the city! You have some awesome ideas! Love it!

        Spring is a beautiful time 🙂 I love Spring too x
