This study was aimed to determine the effect of different ratios of chicken meat to fresh oyster mushroom (Pleurotus sajor-caju) on the physicochemical properties and sensory acceptability of chicken sausages. Five formulations of sausages were prepared by different combinations of chicken meat with fresh oyster mushroom (100:0, 85: 15, 70: 30, 55: 45 and 40: 60). The physicochemical analyses included color profile, texture profile, calorie values, and proximate analysis were carried in triplicate while sensory acceptability of chicken sausages were evaluated using sensory acceptance test with 7-point of hedonic scale. Results indicated that the b* value as well as the hardness, springiness, cohesiveness, gumminess, and chewiness of sausages were significantly (p<0.05) reduced with the addition of fresh oyster mushroom. An increasing level of fresh oyster mushroom and reducing the chicken meat in the formulation were significantly (p<0.05) decreased the ash, crude fat and crude protein content but increased the moisture and crude fiber content of sausages. The carbohydrate content of sausages was insignificantly (p>0.05) influenced by different ratios of chicken meat to fresh oyster mushroom. This study also revealed that there were significant differences (p<0.05) between chicken sausages and mushroom-based sausages in all evaluated sensory attributes except for flavor and mouthfeel attributes. Chicken sausage with 45% of fresh oyster mushroom was the most acceptable formulation with providing fat-lowering and fiber-improving effects when compared to the control sausage.
