Chicken Cordon Blue Burger

Pairs well with:

Pinot Grigio

You won’t need a bouquet of flowers when you share our Pinot Grigio. This crisp wine with floral aromas is a wonderful way to make an entrance.

My inspiration is coming from my family recipes. I was born in Quebec Canada and now have lived in Florida for over 30 years so the French Canadian in me loves the Chicken Cordon Blue I grew up with but is quite of a lengthy recipe to make and so why not into a burger and have dinner ready in less than 15 minutes and I love taking old family recipes and reinventing them into new recipes in different forms like this one!


1 1/2 lb ground chicken

1 1/2 teaspoon chicken seasoning

2 tablespoon fresh parsley

4 tablespoon Italian bread crumbs

2 teaspoon milk

2 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoon butter

10 oz fresh mushroom sliced

1/4 teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoon flour

½ cup milk

½ cup Pinot Grigio wine

6 French hamburger buns from grocer bakery

6 teaspoon Dijon mustard

6 slices deli Swiss cheese

12 thin sliced smoked deli ham

Directly on the grill or on the side burner of the grill in a small non stick frying pan add butter and mushroom, salt and pepper and cook on medium high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add flour and cook an additional minute then add milk and wine whisk and bring to a slow boil and cook until reduced and thicken and forms a think sauce approximately 5 minutes keep on low to keep warm.

Place patties on the grill lid closed and cook 3 minutes turn over and cook 2 minutes longer or until no longer pink in the middle. At the same time in the last 2 minutes place sliced burger buns on grill inside down just too slightly toast.
