I made this one from my Philadelphia cook book and all my guests loved it.. I have listed the chopped cashews in the dipping sauce as part of the ingredients but I didn't add them. Posting here for safe keeping as with all my moving as of late I do not have all my cookbooks and recipes that I have collected over the years.

- 1 red onion, finely chopped
- 150 g Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
- 1⁄3 cup cashews, roasted, salted and finely chopped

- flour, to coat patties

- Make Dipping Sauce:.
- Combine vinegar, water, sugar, sweet chilli sauce, fish sauce, cashews and chilli in a sauce pan.

- For decoration purposes you can place each chicken cake on a basil leaf on a serving platter and serve with dipping sauce.
