bacon cheddar chicken burgers with guacamole... 40 minutes
5 slices bacon
1 Vidalia onion (sweet), sliced into rings
1 pound ground chicken
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 ripe avocado
1 large tomato, sliced
4 slices white cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns
In a large skillet, fry bacon over medium until browned and crisp, transfer to paper towels to drain. In the same pan, add onion slices and let saute in bacon grease until caramelized, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
For guacamole, peel avocado and remove the pit. In a small bowl, mash the avocado with the back of a fork, until slightly chunky. Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of paprika.
To make the burgers, combine, ground chicken, parsley, and paprika in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper and massage together with your hands. Form meat into 4 patties. Cook patties in same pan you took the onions out of. Be diligent that you cook them all the way through, since it's chicken. About 7 minutes per side. During the last minute of cooking, top each patty with a slice of cheese and tent the skillet with foil to allow cheese to melt.
Assemble the burgers by placing a patty on each bun, topped with caramelized onions, bacon, guacamole, and a slice of tomato and top of bun.
