Spray a frying pan with non-stick cooking spray. Cook chicken breast over medium heat until no longer pink. Chop into approximately 1 inch cubes.
Meanwhile, spray a separate frying pan with non-stick cooking spray and sautee mushrooms over medium heat with a ¼ teaspoon salt. Keep lid on and check frequently until done.
Divide chicken into 6 servings, as well as mushrooms (set aside servings while you are cooking the others)
Top diced chicken with mushrooms.
Then add grated cheese, dividing evenly between servings. Cover with a lid, cooking over medium heat until cheese is melted.
Add ½ tablespoon of ranch dressing to each side of each bun, dividing between all burger buns, then add cucumbers, also dividing evenly between buns.
Slide chicken, mushroom and cheese mixture onto prepared bun bottom and add top of bun.
Serve with chips, sliced veggies or whatever you like!
👪 Serving sizeThis recipe makes 6 Tree Burgers/Chicken Breast burgers. However, if you need to reduce or increase the servings, simply click on the blue servings number in the recipe card, select the number of servings you'd like and the ingredient amounts will adjust accordingly.🌡️StoringFridge: If you want to make this ahead, I'd recommend you do not put it all together until just before serving. Cook the chicken and mushroom, melt the cheese on top, then store in a separate container from the sliced cucumbers and ranch dressing. If you have leftovers, I also recommend storing the ingredients separately.Reheating: Reheat the chicken in the microwave for about 45 seconds-11/2 minutes (depending on your microwave) then add to bun.
