Intro: Quick Avocado-Chicken Burger
I always prepare this burger when I have not much time, but I'd still like to get some tasty food ! It's very easy to make, I happen to usually have all ingredients around and it's absolutely delicious, that's why I would like to share it with you today !
You will need:
- Chicken breasts
- Cream cheese with herbs
- Bread rolls
Additionaly, I used the following equipment:
- Kitchen knife
- Cutting board
If you have prepared this dish before, you can make it within 15 minutes - the first time you might need a little longer.
Step 1: Prepare and Cook the Chicken
Okay, first step before we start with the chicken: heat up the oven to 60 degrees celcius and place the bread rolls inside - you can also place the plates inside of the oven to make them warm.
Now, the actual cooking: pat the chicken breasts dry and season them slightly. I have used a seasoning with lemon zest and pepper, but you can use anything you like.
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan on high heat and place the chicken breast inside the pan. After it gets slightly brown, turn down the heat to somewhere between medium and high. Cook the chicken until it's not pink anymore inside.
Step 2: Cut the Avocado
While the chicken is in the pan, you can already start preparing the avocado: To remove the pit, I cut all around the center and split the two halves afterwards. Now you can cut as much avocado as you would like in "stripes". I only used half of it for my two burgers, the rest of the avocado I stored with the pit still inside in the fridge.
Step 3: Place the Avocado and the Bread Into the Pan
Okay, as soon as your chicken is brown outside and white inside (fully cooked), take it out of the pan, place it onto a plate and place it in the oven. Take out your bread rolls, cut them in halves and place them together with the avocado into the same pan you have been using for the chicken. As you may notice, I leave the skin on the avocado - you can peel it already before, but in my opinion it's much easier to peel when it's cooked. Wait until both sides of the avocado-slices are slightly browned. Once that is done, you can take everything out of the pan and peel the avocado with your knife.
Step 4: Assembly !
Almost done ! Now we just need to assemble the burgers !
Take the bottom half of a bread roll, and put some cream cheese on it. Then place a piece of avocado on top of that. Now take the chicken, but it on the bread roll, and then repeat the process for the top half. Voila ! You're done ! Enjoy your delicious burger !
