A tasty chicken latke recipe, flavoured with dill and served with a tzazikki sauce and your favourite salad. This is a great brunch, lunch or mid-week dinner dish. And because the potato and chicken are cooked together, a light salad not only complements the crispness of the latkes, but is an ample accompaniment. Adapted from a recipe on a 'Pan and Wok' recipe card, from International Masters Publishers.
- 175 g chicken breast fillets, skinned
- 700 g baking potatoes
- 1 onion
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tablespoon self-raising flour
- 2 tablespoons fresh dill, plus dill to garnish
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
- Cut the chicken into thin strips, about 6mm/1/4 inch wide.
- Peel and grate the potatoes and place them in a colander. Peel the onion, then grate it into the colander. Press down on the mixture with the back of a spoon or with the palm of your hand, then to remove more excess moisture (so that the latkes crisp well) sandwich the potato/onion mixture between 2 sheets of paper towelling and squeeze until completely dry.
- Lightly beat the egg whites in a large mixing bowl, stir in the flour, dill and salt. Add the chicken and the potato/onion mixture and stir until well-combined.
- Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based non-stick pan.
- Add 4 heaped tablespoons of the chicken/potato mixture, spacing well apart. Gently flatten each one with the back of a spatula, and sauté on each side, or until each side is cooked through and a golden brown. Remove the latkes from the pan, set aside and keep warm. Repeat the process with the remaining chicken/potato mixture to make 8 latkes.
- Garnish with dill and serve with salad and a tzazikki sauce.
These are fabulous! You should have seen how the kids gobbled them up (well, we all did but it was nice to see the KIDS chowing, kwim?) I made a strained yogurt w/dill, garlic, s&p sauce instead of tzatziki & it was wonderful.
Sunday supper is always something quick and simple and this recipe fit the bill. I scaled this down to one serving and used egg beaters in lieu of egg whites. The results were just delicious and made for a complete meal paired with a simple salad of romaine, cucumbers and grape tomatoes. Topped this with a generous sprinkling of sea salt, fresh grated pepper and a squeeze of lemon which provided a nice contrast to the dill. Thanks!
Wonderful potato pancake with addition of chicken and dill. I only made enough for one serving as I was having it for lunch along with your Maroulosalata (Classic Greek Lettuce Salad) and just some plain sour cream. Thanks Bluemoon for providing recipes for a great lunch!! Made for Gimme 5 Tag.
