Chicken Marsala Smashburgers

Chicken Marsala Smashburgers are a delightful fusion of Italian and American flavors, combining the classic Chicken Marsala dish with the concept of a smashburger. These burgers are made with seasoned ground chicken patties, cooked until crispy and golden, then topped with a rich Marsala wine sauce and melted cheese, all served on a toasted bun. Here’s how you can make them:

Start by preparing the ground chicken patties. In a bowl, mix together ground chicken, breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper until well combined. Form the mixture into four patties.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken patties and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Remove the patties from the skillet and set them aside.

In the same skillet, add olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add sliced mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.

Pour Marsala wine and chicken broth into the skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced slightly.

Stir in heavy cream and season with salt and pepper. Continue to simmer for another 5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.

Return the chicken patties to the skillet, spooning the sauce over the top. Place a slice of provolone cheese on each patty and cover the skillet with a lid. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.

To assemble the burgers, place a chicken patty on the bottom half of each toasted bun. Spoon some of the Marsala wine sauce over the top, then place the top half of the bun on top. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.

Serve the Chicken Marsala Smashburgers immediately and enjoy the delicious combination of flavors! These burgers are sure to be a hit with your family and friends.

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
16 oz. mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons marsala wine
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup mayonniase
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
 tablespoon marsala wine
 tablespoon minced onion
pinch of salt
Melt the butter in a large skillet until bubbling then add in the sliced the mushrooms.
Cook for 10 minutes until browned, stirring often. Add in the marsala wine to deglaze the pan, stir, and then add the oyster sauce and pepper.
Remove from the heat and set aside. Put all of the ingredients (except the buns and lettuce) for the chicken burgers into a large bowl.
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.
Heat your grill to medium-high heat. Spray your grill with cooking spray and then add the chicken burgers.
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.
Place some lettuce or parsley on the bottom of each bun.
Put a chicken burger on top and then cover with a big scoop of the mushrooms.
