Thai Chicken Patties

If you know me well you know I love to cook real food recipes that are real easy to make! 

This is such a throw together recipe where you can be very versatile with whatever veggies are kind of looking a little sad in the fridge. I like to jam pack as many veggies into all of the recipes I make because really we can't have too many veggies in our day, we barely get our 2&5 fruit and veg in a day as it is. 

I don't tend to buy a lot of chicken mince but I made a HUGE order from the Australian Natural Food Co last week which is a local Brisbane based company who sell organic meat online. I actually have a discount code for any of my followers who are interested "sofandshan" which will provide you 15% off... this is in no way sponsored! I just love to be able to help my followers get their hands on good quality produce. 

Anyone who is attending our upcoming Batch Cook Like A Badass Workshops you will get to try it! Anyway, enjoy this recipe. Have a little fun with it and be creative. 

It is a great one to batch cook for the week ahead and eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Enjoy, Sof x

servings: 18  // prep time: 10 minutes, cooking time: 4-6 minutes


INGREDIENTS

  • 1kg chicken mince
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 broccoli
  • handful spinach or kale
  • 1/4 cup coriander (or any herbs)
  • 1 brown onion
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp tamari or coconut aminos
  • 1-2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp meadow & marrow curry bone broth
  • juice of 1 lime
  • sea salt & pepper
  • 2 tbsp macadamia or coconut oil

You could spice things up with a little chilli

The liquid content of your mince will determine how much almond meal to add, try 1/2 cup to start... add all of the mixture together and see how well the patties hold together.  

METHOD

  1. Add broccoli, greens, herbs, onion and garlic to a food processor and process until it is all well chopped, then add to a large mixing bowl.
  2. To that bowl add the rest of the ingredients (except the oil for cooking) and mix until combined.
  3. Shape mixture into 18 patties (I shape with a little pressure so the patties compact together) press to flatten slightly and place on a plate ready to cook.
  4. Heat oil in a fry pan on medium to high heat and add patties.
  5. Cooking 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through. 
  6. Serve in lettuce cups with salad or with my turmeric rice (whatever you desire!)
  7. Allow to cool and store in the fridge in an airtight container (they also freeze well).

NOTE: you can add any vegetables, herbs to this recipe and you don't have to use a food processor you could just finely slice/dice all of the ingredients and add them into the bowl.

If the mixture is too wet for your liking add more almond meal as you mix it all together or if it is too dry add a little more tamari.
