This super juicy chicken burger is topped with marsala mushrooms and lots of cheese!



For the burgers

  • 2 lbs. ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons marsala wine
  • 2 teaspoons minced onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 12 slices of white American Cheese
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • lettuce or flat-leaf parsley for garnish

For the mushrooms

  • 16 oz. mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons marsala wine
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the mustard marsala aioli

  • 1/2 cup mayonniase
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon marsala wine
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • pinch of salt


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet until bubbling then add in the sliced the mushrooms.
  2. Cook for 10 minutes until browned, stirring often.
  3. Add in the marsala wine to deglaze the pan, stir, and then add the oyster sauce and pepper.
  4. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  5. Put all of the ingredients (except the buns and lettuce) for the chicken burgers into a large bowl.
  6. Mix together with your hands and then form into 6 oz. patties. It helps if you spray your hands with cooking spray before you make the patties so the chicken doesn’t stick.
  7. Heat your grill to medium-high heat.
  8. Spray your grill with cooking spray and then add the chicken burgers.
  9. Grill for four minutes per side and then add two slices of cheese to each burger and close the lid to melt the cheese for one minute.
  10. Place some lettuce or parsley on the bottom of each bun.
  11. Put a chicken burger on top and then cover with a big scoop of the mushrooms.
