I couldn’t wait to share with you the recipe for my insanely good organic ground chicken burgers (both gluten & dairy free!). They are super easy to make and go perfectly with my easy, 15 minute sweet potato fries. You don’t have to give up what you love, just find healthier alternatives 🙂 Enjoy!

Servings: 4 people


Chicken Burgers

  • 1 lb organic ground chicken, (can sub for organic ground turkey)
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup chopped spinach
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp oil, (I prefer avocado oil)

Burger Toppings

  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1-2 tomatoes
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced

Sweet Potato Fries

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp oil, (I prefer avocado or coconut oil)
  • 1/2 tbsp seasonings of choice (i.e. salt and pepper, chili powder, paprika)


Chicken Burgers

  • Dice up red bell pepper and add to large mixing bowl with organic meat, cilantro, spinach, flaxseed and seasonings.
  • Use your hands and mix thoroughly, then form into 4-5 patties.
  • Heat skillet (or grill) on medium with avocado oil. Add patties once oil is hot, but not smoking. Cover, and let cook about 5-7 minutes on either side, or until cooked through.
  • Once done, build burgers with butter lettuce, tomato, avocado, red onion and condiments.

Sweet Potato Fries

  • Turn oven on broil, high heat (500 degrees F).
  • Slice sweet potatoes into wedges. Spray or toss with oil (use as little as possible– wedges get crispier with less oil) and season.
  • Lay sweet potato wedges on parchment paper covered sheet pan and let broil for 12-15 minutes, flipping towards the end.
