Mushroom Chicken Burgers

Yesterday, felt like -40 degrees celsius in Toronto. Ridiculous! Sigh… anyway, dreaming of warmer weather has me making summer-type foods. Here is a simple recipe for chicken burger patties. Enjoy! 🙂


Mushroom Chicken Burgers

Yields: 6 patties | Prep Time: 10 minutes | Total Cook Time 35 minutes


  • 1 cup of cremini mushrooms, diced
  • 2 tbsp grass fed butter, divided
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 tsp garlic salt or garlic powder
  • 2 tsp parsley flakes
  • salt & pepper, to taste


  1. In a cast iron pan or skillet melt 1 tbsp butter on medium heat and add cremini mushrooms. Cook mushrooms, until liquid is gone (10-12 minutes), then set aside
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine cooked mushrooms with ground chicken and season with garlic salt, parsley flakes and salt and pepper
  3. Form ground chicken mixture into patties (I used a 3 inch biscuit cutter)
  4. On medium heat, melt the remaining butter in a cast iron pan and cook the patties well (5-7 minutes each side) – I flipped them a few times to avoid any burning
  5. Serve them up with whatever you like and enjoy!
