2 1/2 cups
shredded cooked chicken meat
seasoned bread crumbs
olive oil for frying
I pulsed the chicken in a food processor instead of shredding it and added an egg to the mixture to make it hold together better. I also didn't have tartar sauce, so I just subbed more mayo. Could have made it a bit spicier.
It turned out great! My 9 month old loved it. I will definately make again.
This was just ok. I made 2 batches: one with chopped chicken, but the cakes fell apart while cooking, and one with all the ingredients in a food processor. The second batch held together and looked more like crab cakes but they definately did not taste like crab cakes. Just sort of plain. Will not make them again.
I found this because I had leftover already cooked chicken from making quesadillas the night before.
It's a fresh idea for left over chicken.
I chopped the chicken breast in my food processor until it was pretty fine. This is key.
I mixed it with egg, mayonnaise, garlic salt, paprika, and tarragon. I dipped the patties in egg and coated them in panko breading. pan fried in a non stick rachel ray small frying pan lightly sprayed with olive oil.
I felt inspired to then put them on a baking sheet, cover them in marinara sauce, sprinkle each one with mozzerella and broil until the cheese was browned.
They were good that night, and they were good as leftovers.
I LOVED this! Before serving I squeezed fresh lemon juice over the cakes. This was excellent.
Recipe was outstanding! I used leftover rotisserie chicken and substituted Dijon mustard for Tarter Sauce to give it a little flavor.
What a fabulous recipe! Both my husband and I don't like seafood so these are a tasty alternative and a great way to use up leftover chicken. A squeeze of lemon on top before eating makes all the difference. Will be making these again for sure!!
These were so good. Make sure that you shred the chicken well, and you can hardly tell they are not crab. These will be a staple in our menu.
These were O.K. but not anything I would seek out. My husband liked them much better than I did. Looked like crab cakes.
