Chicken I enjoy only in limited capacity 😉 I prefer to buy only selected and limited pieces of chicken. This time bought chicken breast for making and baking some chicken patties.
I am not in favor with the frozen variety available in the stores as they are loaded with preservatives.
The best part of this recipe is, the patties can be stored upto 3 months in the freezer. One may consume it baked and served with dips, chutneys with a siding of salad and a wedge of lime, or use in making juicy, crispy burgers.
2 cups – chopped chicken in 1″ pieces
1/4 cup – finely chopped onion
2 cups – breadcrumbs
1 tsp – garlic paste
1 tsp – ginger paste
1/2 tsp – black pepper powder
1/2 tsp – red chili powder
1 tbsp – oil
1 nos – egg
salt to taste
Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
Add the chicken, egg, oil, black pepper and red chili powder in a processor. Pulse in short bursts until the chicken is well minced but not a paste.
In a bowl mix together the chopped onion, ginger and garlic paste and the minced chicken. Season with salt.
Divide the mix into equal portion and make 5-6 balls.
Spread the breadcrumbs on a plate. Flatten the balls into 1/2″ thick patties. Roll the patties in the breadcrumbs. Make sure the patties are coated well. Press the patties after rolling them into breadcrumbs, so as that they are coating the patties well.
Place the patties on a baking sheet. Brush them with oil (optional) and bake for 18- 20 mins or well cooked.
Serve hot with dips or chutneys of your choice.
Happy cooking !! 🙂
Cheers !! 😀
