Creamy Ranch Chicken Burgers

Creamy Ranch Chicken Burgers
Adapted from Express Lane Meals by Rachael Ray
16 oz ground chicken breast
2 finely chopped garlic clove
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 tsp parsley leaves (or use some fresh if you have it)
1/4 pound Havarti cheese, diced into 1/4" cubes
2 tsp poultry seasoning
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
Salt & pepper
Ranch dressing for buns
4 buns of your choice

In a large bowl combine the ground chicken, garlic, onion, parsley, Havarti chunks, poultry seasoning, lemon juice, and salt, & pepper to taste. Divide the mixture into 4 equal mounds and then form into thin patties about 1" thick. Drizzle with olive oil to coat. Place patties in a skillet on medium-high heat, cook through--about 5-6 minutes on each side. Serve on toasted buns topped with Ranch dressing.

Extra options:
add bacon (or turkey bacon)
add pickles (as my husband does)
switch up the cheese try provolone, muenster, or colby jack
add tomatoes
use real lemon and zest instead
