  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1 fruit without skin and seeds California Avocados
  • 1 cup Green Tomato Chile Sauce (Salsa Verde)
  • 2 clove GARLIC
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 2 serving CHILI POWDER
  • 3 medium (4-1/8" long) Scallions or Spring Onions

DIRECTIONS

Use the Atkins recipe to make Atkins Low Carb Wheat Bread; you will need 6 slices.  Toast them (or use stale bread) then process in a food processor into bread crumbs.  You will need 1 cup.
 
  1. Combine chicken, bread crumbs, chopped green onions, minced garlic, egg, 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, cumin, salt and chili powder in a bowl. Mix well and shape into four 1-thick patties. Place on a plate, cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, mix salsa, avocado and remaining cilantro in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat and cook burgers 7 minutes on each side, until browned and cooked through. Serve with salsa mixture.
