  • 2 chicken breasts boneless skinless
  • 2 burger buns
  • 1 avocado mashed with salt pepper and lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

For the Korean BBQ sauce

  • 1/4 Korean hot sauce like Gochujang
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil

For the coleslaw

  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 ear of corn kernels removed
  • 2 medium carrots grated
  • 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • juice of 1 lemon


  • Preheat the grill.
  • Thin out the chicken breasts, so that they are even the whole way through. Brush with some of the olive oil and brush the grill with olive oil. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 8 minutes per side. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.

BBQ Sauce

  • Combine all the ingredients for the BBQ sauce in a bowl and whisk together. Brush the chicken with the sauce during the last 5-10 minutes to avoid burning.

To make the coleslaw, place the cabbage, corn and carrots in a bowl. Add the Greek yogurt, mustard and juice of a lemon and stir well to mix.

    To serve the burgers, mash the avocado with salt and pepper and and spread over the bottom of the buns. Cut the chicken breast in half, so it all fits on the bun and top with the coleslaw.
