Recipe by Carofil

This recipe is a favourite with white rice, however the brown rice adds a more chewy texture and flavour that will please many.

This was easy to prepare and I liked the sage with the ground chicken however the mixture was very soft and I had to add more binder - I used 3 tbsp of bread crumbs and made sure the outside was well crumbed before frying them. Rissoles are traditionally croquette shaped or balls but I decided to make patties because of the still quitesoft texture.I would suggest cutting back 1 egg or less buttermilk. They firmed up nicely when cooked and were enjoyed. Happy contest to you!
