Chicken Salad Burgers
3 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup finely diced celery
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup blanched almond flour
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste (optional)
Olive or coconut oil, for cooking
In a large bowl, add chicken, mayonnaise, celery, onion, and bell pepper; mix until thoroughly combined. Add egg and mix well; stir in almond flour. Divide mixture into 5 or 6 equal portions and shape into patties.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 to 3 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot. Carefully place patties into skillet and cook until golden brown, about 5 to 6 minutes; flip and cook an additional 6 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer burgers to a platter or plate. Serve topped with diced red bell pepper and lemon zest, if desired.
