In a large bowl combine ground chicken, garlic, onion, parsley, blue cheese, poultry seasoning, lemon juice and zest, salt and pepper. Form into 4 oval shaped patties.

Slice bread thickly. Brush both sides with olive oil, and place on grill until golden brown; turn, repeat.
Transfer bread to plate. Add burger, top with lettuce and tomato, and garnish with a pat of blue cheese. Goes well with dilled potato salad and asparagus. Makes 4 servings.
