Easy Dinner Idea with Ground Chicken | Chicken Broccoli Patties

If you are stuck with your dinner idea and if you are into easy meals that are on the healthy side this one is for you. So simple but doesn’t sacrifice on taste. Great thing is those patties are packed with lean protein and broccoli. Great to make for your child that doesn’t like veggies. The broccoli adds vitamins and nutrients but hard to notice or taste. It just doesn’t look like broccoli at all ( it is obviously green but hard to tell it is broccoli). I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of those patties the first time I made them but ever since they are are a favorite of everyone that I served them to. And the leftovers are as delicious as the fresh batch.

You can add those to salads, make a mini burgers, eat with rice, make pita wraps. Great with hummus, mustard, sriracha or the Bitchin sauces. They are so delicious!

Recipe

WHAT YOU NEED:

1 lb ground chicken

1 head of broccoli ( around 1 lb)

4-5 stalks of green onion

Fresh parsley

2 cloves of garlic

1 egg

4-5 tablespoons of bread crumbs or almond meal (or I use both)

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons oil of your choice ( I used sunflower)

INSTRUCTIONS

Put broccoli, parsley, green onion and garlic in a food processor.

Add the ground chicken in a large bowl, add the chopped veggies, the egg, crumbs and/or almond meal, salt and pepper. Mix it all together. With hands is the easiest and the best way to combine everything, plus you will get your hands dirty anyway when you shape the patties. If it seems too thin you can add a bit more crumbs or almond meal. Shape patties with desired size. I prefer to make them thinner so they cook faster.

I have two ways of cooking.

1. Add oil in a pan and cook on the stove. Cook each side till it gets lightly brown.

or

2. Line baking tray with parchment paper and bake on 390F for about 20-30 min until lightly brown.
