How to make chicken patties

  1. Make the patties: Combine the chicken with all the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until just combined, take care not to overmix as the patties can become tough. With wet hands, form the chicken mixture into four patties and place on a parchment-lined plate/sheetpan.
  2. Cook: Preheat a large, non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add a splash of olive oil. Add the patties and cook for 4-5 minutes per side until golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Remove from the heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes then serve.

Can I make this ahead?

  • Make ahead: The patties can be formed and kept in the fridge, covered, for up to 2 days before cooking. Place cooked patties in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat the patties in a warm pan or in the microwave oven before serving.
  • Freezing instructions: Raw patties can be frozen for up to 3 months. Form the patties then transfer to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Allow to freeze until solid then transfer to a freezer bag or container. You can bake the patties from frozen until golden brown and cooked through or thaw completely before cooking in a pan.
