Chicken Avocado Patties

D had to go out of town last week, so I was left to my own devices. I told him I was having refried beans for dinner, but then I found this recipe, so I also decided to make something similar.

I changed the name from Burgers to Patties, because the way I am with Pizza is only with red sauce, else it is Shit on Bread, D is that way with Burgers. Without a bun, it isn't a burger. Fair enough.

Anyway I made these, and they were pretty good. I'm not the best cook so I used a food thermometer to determine if they were done enough. D had one when he got home from his trip, and he said, "Good job!"

I served with refried beans (from a can).
