Original ground chicken patties recipe from my Ukrainian grandma. Can be grilled and is great in a burger or with quinoa and salad. | ifoodreal.com

This ground chicken burgers (patties) recipe (also known as cakes and chicken mince burgers) will knock your socks off! And the best part is they are super lean, use minimum ingredients and kids love them. Growing up in Ukraine my grandma made these all the time and we used to say they are like spitz – highly addictive.

Grandma didn’t make her chicken mince patties with chicken breasts but rather with any part of chicken. She fried them with oil and flour. I used no flour. To help patties stay together (I suspect also to stay on a budget) she used bread. I added only 1 slice of organic sprouted whole wheat bread. If you have Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, there are plenty gluten free breads on the market.

I always say you do not need a bunch of gadgets and small appliances for eating clean. A good blender and food processor are absolute musts though!

My absolute favourite way of eating chicken patties is with whole wheat spaghetti and ketchup (hence, chicken and whole wheat spaghetti recipe was born). They are also taste great cold. My kids love them and I can guarantee yours will too!

This ground chicken patties recipe also makes spicy chicken burger recipe. And, if you are looking for one more amazing chicken dinner idea, may I suggest this 5 star rated baked chicken with peppers?!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a food processor or high speed blender, add chicken and process until ground. Work in batches and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Again in a blender, add egg, onion and garlic. Quickly soak bread in water, squeeze well and add to the blender along with salt and pepper. Process until well combined and add to the bowl with chicken meat. Using your hands, mix well.
  3. Preheat large ceramic non-stick skillet on medium heat and swirl some oil to coat. Form into balls somewhere between golf and tennis size and flatten into patties.
  4. Panfry for about 4-5 minutes per side. It is time to flip when white edges appear and patty is brown on the bottom. Please note the second and third batch will take less time to cook as the skillet will be hotter. Serve hot or cold, with a side grain or salad, or try Sweet with Heat Chicken Burger.
  5. Storage Instructions: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

    Love your site.. Just a quick question… considering the bread, how can the carb content be so low? I’m eating low carb foods with great results, and I’d love to try this recipe, but the bread worries me! P.S. My cauliflower crust is baking in the oven as we speak – your cauliflower crust pizza is my favorite!!

      Hey Alex. Glad to hear that.:) The recipe calls for only 2 slices of sprouted bread, 16g of carbs each, divided by 24 patties.:) Why are you worried about healthy complex carbs so much? You need to eat good carbs and not bad carbs. Good carbs are found in foods like brown rice, quinoa, oatmeal, buckwheat and sprouted bread. There is a big misconception about carbs. Don’t be scared about healthy carbs in moderation!:) Eat the chicken patties.:)

      Oh, really anything. Quinoa, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, potatoes with skin on, buckwheat, whole wheat bulgur or couscous. All these are healthy starches. I like these patties with a bit of organic ketchup too.

      I’m so glad I shared my grandma’s recipe! I can’t believe people are eating fast food burgers but yet never make their own patties at home. Missing out big time! But not us. Enjoy!

    How would you recommend ceaning out the blender after this? My Vitamix claims to be self cleaning with just hot water and soap…. but, chicken, you know. Suggestions?

      Hi Faith. Yes. I usually do clean as the blender manufacturer recommends, to lose up the bits of chicken meat. And then scrub inside with dish cloth and soap. Only doing the clean cycle will not clean it enough.
