These avocado ranch chicken burgers are the perfect flavorful burger for summer, with a bit of hidden veggies!


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup shredded zucchini (with the water squeezed out)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil (plus more if you’re frying or grilling)
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 small avocado (or half a large avocado), diced into chunks
  • Butter lettuce leaves (optional)
  • Dairy-free ranch for serving (like this)


  1. Prepare either a grill or a grill pan and set to medium-high heat. Grease the grill pan with avocado oil.
  2. Mix the ground chicken with the zucchini, seasonings, coconut flour, lime juice, and avocado oil until well combined.
  3. Very gently fold in the avocado slices, being careful to not smash them.
  4. Form the chicken into 4-5 burgers, spacing out the avocado to make sure it’s evenly dispersed.
  5. Grill the burgers on the grill surface (using extra avocado oil if frying in a pan) for about 4-6 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F. Remove from the heat and allow to rest for a few minutes.
  6. Serve by themselves with a side or top with a ranch dressing of your choice.
