Chicken Patties and Brussels Sprouts
This recipe for chicken patties is yet another recipe that I got from one of the Yahoo Groups I belong to. It reminds me of crab cakes, but it is made with chicken instead. Nathan doesn’t care for crab, so I thought I’d try out this recipe. I used seasoned bread crumbs containing red pepper flakes, so there was a little extra spice.
One of my goals is to prepare more vegetables with dinner. I haven’t had brussels sprouts in at least ten years, but when I read about Ina Garten’s method for cooking them on Slashfood, I decided to give it a try. Overall, I liked them, and they were super easy to prepare. Nathan, who had never had brussels sprouts, said he didn’t hate them. That is definitely saying something, coming from THE Picky Apple. (As an aside, I think The Littlest Apple may be in the running for The Pickiest Apple.)
Makes 12 patties.
- 4 cups finely minced cooked chicken
- 4 lightly beaten eggs
- 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
Combine chicken, eggs, cheese, and bread crumbs thoroughly. Use your hands to make 12 round or oval patties, 1/2″ thick. Heat the oil in a skillet. Saute the patties on each side until browned.
Picky Apple Note: I used my Food Chopper to finely chop the chicken.
