We love these chicken patties, rissoles; whatever you want to call them 🙂
These are a go-to staple for us on a weekly basis and I use whatever is in the kitchen at the time for fillings. You can add any sort of vegetables your taste buds enjoy. I believe your entire family, even the fussy ones will enjoy these.
What do you need?
- Chicken Mince 500g
- 1 Egg
- Sweet Potato, chopped and steamed/boiled
- Red Capsicum, 1/2 cup chopped
- Red Onion, 1/2 diced
- Grated Cheese, 1/4 cup (I usually use parmesan, however at the time I had Tasty)
- Panko Crumbs, 1 cup to coat
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- Spices and Chilli Flakes, to taste as desired
- Coconut Oil (or other healthier oil option) to cook in
*If the mixture is too soft for you, you can add 1/2-1 cup of wholemeal or atta flour to bulk it up.
This recipe makes approx. 6-7 patties
Mix all ingredients (except the panko crumbs and oil) in a large bowl until it is all combined.
The spices that we use are Moroccan spice mix, curry powder and dry herbs with chilli flakes. I also throw in about a 2tbs chia seeds.
Place your Panko crumbs (I love these over the normal bread crumbs!) in a small bowl for coating. *You can find Panko crumbs in the Asian section of your local grocery store*
Make a ball of the mixture and coat in the crumb, then place into the hot pan with oil, squash down with an egg flip and cook on both sides until golden brown and cooked all the way through. These don’t need to be on a high temperature and do cook fairly quickly so don’t leave unattended for too long.
Now all that is left to do is ENJOY! These do not last long in our household, but if you find you have some left than they can be stored for up to 2 days in the fridge.
Play around with the flavours and fillings and let me know what you think. We have made a Thai inspired flavour previously with fresh coriander, we have also used fresh baby spinach in the past. The options are endless!
