Inactive Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 25 min
Serves: 4


8 bacon strips
1.5 lbs ground chicken
1/4 c. bread crumbs
1 egg
2 T. Worchestershire sauce
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
blue cheese crumbles
1 tomato sliced
1 avocado sliced
2-3 handfuls of lettuce
raspberry vinaigrette


Heat pan to medium-high. Cook bacon; set aside. Increase to high heat. In a bowl, combine meat, bread crumbs, egg and Worchestershire sauce; combine. Form into 4 patties, brush with oil and season with salt & pepper on both sides. Grill the burgers until golden brown on both sides and cooked through completely, about 5 minutes per side. Top the burgers with the blue cheese and continue cooking until the cheese begins to melt, about 1 minute longer. Place burgers on bottom bun; layer with vinaigrette soaked lettuce, bacon, tomato and avocado.
(just before assembling burgers, place lettuce in a medium bowl and toss with vinaigrette).
