chili-lime chicken burgers... 15 minutes

the goods:

1 pound ground chicken
2 scallions, chopped
1/2 red bell-pepper, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon cilantro, minced
1/2 teaspoon season salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 lime, juiced
4 teaspoons olive oil
4 sliced pepper jack cheese
4 hamburger buns
lettuce and sliced tomato for serving, along with any other desired condiments

Preheat grill.
In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, scallions, red bell pepper, cilantro, season salt, pepper, and lime juice. Mix to incorporate. Form into 4 patties and rub them with olive oil so they don't stick to the grill.
Brush your hot grill to clean the grates, then cook burgers for 3 minutes, flip and cook for 5 minutes more. In the last minute, top with cheese slices and cover grill to allow cheese to melt. Serve on buns with desired toppings and condiments.
