Combine sour cream and lime juice in small bowl; refrigerate until ready to serve. Stir together cream cheese spread, cilantro, and jalapeño in another small bowl; set aside.
Combine ground chicken, salt, and pepper in large bowl; do not overmix. Form mixture into 8 (3-inch each) patties; cover and refrigerate 10 minutes.
Prepare charcoal or gas grill with greased grill rack for direct cooking over medium heat (350°).
To assemble patties, spoon 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture onto each center of 4 patties; add 2 mozzarella pearls to each. Cover cheese-topped patties with remaining patties. Gently press edges together to seal.
Grill patties 12 to 14 minutes or until patties reach 165°, turning once halfway through. Grill buns, cut sides down, 30 to 60 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove from grill.
To serve, top bun bottoms with lettuce, cooked chicken burgers, tomato, and avocado. Drizzle with sour cream mixture; place bun tops on burgers.
