  • 1 Air fryer
  • 1 Mixing bowl


  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 1/2 small onion, grated
  • 2 large garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 medium shallot, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp lime zest
  • 1 tbsp lime juice


  • 1/2 cup light mayo
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 4 leaves butter lettuce
  • 4 brioche buns


  • Preheat air fryer at 380 degrees for five minutes while you make the burger patties.
  • Add the ground chicken to a medium bowl.Using the large grates on a grater, grate the onion and garlic over the chicken. Make sure to grate it over the chicken so you catch all the juice.
  • Add the salt, shallot, red pepper, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, black pepper, lime zest and lime juice to the ground chicken. Using your hands or a fork gently mix everything together just until combined. DO NOT OVER MIX.
  • Form the chicken mixture into four even patties.
  • Spray the bottom of the air fryer with non stick cooking spray. Place all four patties in the tray. Spray tops with more non-stick cooking spray. Cook at 380 degrees for six minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degrees.
  • While the burgers cook, make the aioli. Whisk mayo, garlic, cumin, lime juice, garlic powder and salt together in a small bowl. Season to taste.
  • Spread a little bit of the aioli on the bottom and top of each bun. Top the bottom of each bun with lettuce followed by a chicken patty. Layer on avocado and serve.
