Chicken and Feta Patties

There seems to be an assumption that chicken mince makes dry tasteless patties, which isn't always true. Besides, there are other benefits to using chicken mince. It usually contains lower fat than other choices of meat in the market. Most chicken mince I find is made out of chicken breast (unlike beef or lamb where it can be difficult to tell what cut of meat it comes from).

However, if chicken mince is too lean or too dry for your liking, adding cheese may help. My favourite so far, is feta cheese. It add a sharp bite to the patties.

Patties is such a cheap and quick way to add protein to the diet. Shaping it up is fun though- ahh..nothing beats shapping some patties, playing with it like dough (it's adult play doh perhaps?) and throwing it into the pan. mm.. Is this call patty therapy?

I served this with an avocado carrot salad-with sesame dressing. I have finally found a dressing that hubby likes (yes, he does not like dressings or sauces!).

Chicken and Feta Patties (Around 18 patties)
500 grams chicken mince
1 cup of herb bread crumbs (Store bought)
1/2 cup of corn flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp of chili flakes
20 grams of feta crumbed
2 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup of dry sherry

Mix everything together. Marinate for around 20 minutes. Heat a hot pan up with some oil. Shape patty with wet hands. Fry it up! Flip sides every 3-4 minutes.

Yum! These patties look great! I use ground chicken to make patties too. Definitely feel healthier. I never made it more western style and when I make it I will remember to add feta cheese! Great idea. Oh and nice way to say about adult playdoh. LOL!

very very interesting. Adding feta to the patties. I usually do mozzarella or pepper jack but I am sensing the feta gives such a nice balance of saltiness. I like this idea so much! Great post girl!
