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
