“Bold regional flavors” from cities like Dallas, Miami, Buffalo and Los Anagles inspire the taste of this burger, which is served at Bobby Flay’s Bobby’s Burger Palace in Miami.

It “combines a perfectly grilled chicken patty topped with a spicy pepper jack cheese and avocado relish,” says Flay. “The creamy avocado relish balances the spicy cheese and compliments the juicy flavors of the grilled chicken breast. The relish truly elevates the burger flavor.”

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
