One of my favorite dinners ever is chicken marsala, I order it almost every time I go out – so what better could be better than turning my favorite meal into this Chicken Marsala Burger?
I’m not kidding when I say that I order chicken marsala all the time. There’s certain restaurants that we go to that make it so good I just can’t help myself.
I get it every time. So why not turn all those flavors into another favorite meal of mine – a hamburger. That’s my other staple when I’m not sure how the food is going to be at a restaurant…I keep it simple sometimes.
I’m going to start by making the mushrooms topping for my burger. The ‘shrooms are pretty simple, melt some butter in a pan then add the mushrooms and cook them down. When they’re about done your going to pour in a good amount of marsala wine.
You can put them aside and get started on the chicken burger. OK, so let’s all agree that ground chicken in burger form (or any form) can get a little dry, right? I have the answer for that – you just need to add a big scoop of mayonnaise. The mayo keeps these chicken burgers juicy and also gives them great flavor.
Get your hands in there and mix that all up – make sure all your ingredients are mixed in really good and then form them into 6 oz. patties.
Now it’s time to fire up the grill – get it nice and hot and spray it with cooking spray. You’re going to need to give it a good coating so the chicken burgers don’t stick. Now don’t move them for 4 minutes. Flip them over and they look like this. Perfect grill marks on side one – and now it’s time for the cheese!
I grabbed Kraft White American Deli Deluxe singles for these burgers…two slices per burger.
Did I mention the fries yet? What’s the perfect side for a hamburger? A french fry obviously. I used my favorite store bought french fries and made a quick mustard marsala aioli for dipping. Sounds fancy, right? Well, it’s not. It’s only four ingredients. Another big scoop of Kraft Mayo, mustard, marsala wine and minced onion. Whisk together and chill. Fry sauce done.
Now that’s a dinner that looks like you ordered it out at your favorite burger place. Seriously juicy chicken burger, marsala mushrooms, lots of cheese and a little bit of that salad I grabbed for garnish on the bun.
