Asian Chicken Patties


Note:  I didn't measure anything when I made these.  So I wrote up the recipe as approximate.  Use the recipe as an outline and adjust seasoning to suit personal taste.

1 pound chicken breasts
3/4 cup fresh grated bread crumbs
1 egg
1 large clove of garlic
Fresh ginger
Asian chili pepper paste
Splash of rice wine vinegar
Green onions
Cilantro
Salt

Grind chicken breasts in Food processor until it looks like ground chicken. Do not over process. Empty in to large bowl. Add fresh grated bread crumbs.

Add egg, minced garlic clove and minced ginger to food processor and pulse. Add green onion, cilantro and splash of rice wine vinegar and chili pepper paste. Pulse to coarsely puree.

Add to chicken and bread crumbs. Mix by hand. Fry a taste test piece and adjust seasoning as needed.

Shape in to patties. Heat skillet, add peanut oil and saute until cooked. Patties should be lightly browned on both sides. Place in oven to keep warm while cooking remaining patties. (I used a cast iron skillet).

Serve with Asian Salad.
