Used Pitas instead of buns (there are gluten-free buns but the texture is awful) – toasted on a flat-top griddle.  Toppings: leafy lettuce, avocado slices, and store-made mango pico de gallo.

Definitely a burger we will have again.  Quite possibly the moistest chicken burger I’ve made yet. A little heat from the jalapeño but not intrusive – just tons of flavor complimented by the sweetness of the mango salsa and the buttery avocado.  My Heart said that he wouldn’t change a thing – That is a Hit !
