This recipe has been sitting on the shelf on the back of my mind, just collecting dust for the past three weeks. As I’ve mentioned in my previous blog post, I was on an unplanned hiatus for three weeks. Nevertheless, I’m back and I’m back with a delicious recipe! The sweet, moist, and juicy chicken breast and caramelized bacon slices go extremely well with the spicy guacamole, mhm hmm mmm! This is only my take on the famous chicken and guacamole burger, although I know there is not a traditional way of making one. That is what I love about burgers… you are the boss of your burgers! =) Anyway, here is the recipe!
