  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 8 ounces marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, or as much as you'd like!
  • fresh chopped basil, to garnish
  • olive oil, for cooking


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400° F. While it's heating up, gently scoop the gills out from the inside of the mushrooms with a spoon. Spray or brush both sides of the mushroom caps with a thin layer of olive oil and cook for 6-8 minutes or until the mushroom has softened.
  • While the mushrooms are cooking, heat a large non-stick skillet on medium-high heat and sauté the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion begins to soften. Add the ground chicken to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through. Pour the marinara sauce in the pan, mix, and reduce the heat to low.
  • While the chicken is cooking, mix the parmesan cheese and bread crumbs in a small bowl and set aside.
  • When the mushrooms are finished, carefully remove them from the air fryer and drain the liquid (I do this in my sink). Place them back in the air fryer and stuff them with the chicken, then top them with mozzarella cheese. Air fry at 375° F for 2-3 minutes, until cheese has melted. Then top them with the parmesan bread crumb mixture and cook for 1-2 more minutes, until the bread crumbs are toasted.
  • Carefully transfer the mushrooms to a plate and serve immediately.


  • You can substitute the bread crumbs for panko, just mix in a teaspoon of Italian seasoning.
  • To make these in the oven: cook the mushrooms at 400° F for 10-12 minutes until they begin to soften. Stuff them with the chicken mixture and bake for 5 minutes. Remove them from the oven and turn on the broiler, top the mushrooms with the bread crumb mixture, and broil on the middle rack for 1-2 minutes or until the bread crumbs brown.
  • This is the air fryer I use.
