Caribeque Chicken Burger
Salty - Sweet - Tangy & Spicy!
All the good things about this grilled chicken burger.
Recipe via @yardcorebbq
- 4 burgers
- 4 buns
- 4 large skinless, boneless chicken thighs
- Caribeque AP Rub
- Jack cheese
- (2 ripe avocados, dash kosher salt,
- 1 Tbsp lime juice,
- 2 tbsp chopped green onion,
- 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro,
- 1 small smashed tomato,
- 2 Tbsp Caribeque Lemon Garlic Seasoning
- Caribeque Buffalo BBQ Sauce
Season chicken thighs with Caribeque AP rub and rest in the fridge for 30 mins to 4 hrs.
Prepare Guacamole - Cut and peel avocado. Mash the avocado with a fork to your desired chunkiness. Stir in the remainder of your ingredients. * (Optional this is a great place to kick up the heat with a little lime based hot sauce.) Cover and chill in the fridge until ready to add to burgers..or sample with a few tortilla chips and beer?
Warm your Caribeque Buffalo BBQ Sauce in a saucepan over low heat
Pre-heat your grill. Once your grill is as hot as you can get it. Prepare an area for indirect grilling and place your chicken over the low to no heat area. When the chicken releases from the grill, flip and cook till an internal temperature of 165F. At this point, you may top your chicken with the cheese or my favorite is to melt a few mini-cheese wheels in a small cast iron pan and pour the molten gooey-ness over your chicken when preparing the burger.
Once your chicken is flipped and getting close it's time to prepare your buns. Butter and lightly toast on the warming rack of your grill. I always like a little garlic spice mix sprinkled on the butter.
Putting it all together - On the bottom bun spoon on a generous portion of guacamole. Top the Guac with your chicken pour over a reasonable slathering of Caribeque buffalo bbq sauce, and enjoy!
