So pleased to come across such a quick recipe for leftover chicken! I doubled the recipe due to the amount of chicken I had, and I made a few adjustments: I had some chicken pie left over, plus about half of a roast chicken. I chopped it all up, but as this meat had its own seasonings already, I only added (as suggested in the intro) 2 teaspoons dry Italian salad dressing. I used a tangy mayonnaise (do NOT leave this out!!) and used 2 beaten eggs. Also, I left this mixture in the fridge for about an hour, for the flavours to develop. The patties -- sorry, my burgers, LOL! as this was for dinner -- turned out great. They can easily fall apart, and are best handled carefully. Very nice, easy recipe! I think a next time I might squeeze some fresh lemon juice into the mixture. Oh -- I forgot: maybe you should specify whether the breadcrumbs are freshly made (soft) or dried. I used some finely-ground cornflake crumbs, and definitely less than specified. Thanks, a great recipe for chicken leftovers!!
This was the BEST chicken patty I have EVER had! The best part was it was so easy and quick to make! As a student you want to eat healthy but not spend a fortune or the time to make it.I didn't have the Italian Dressing as suggested by the recipe so I added Ranch and it was just awesome! Thanks so much for this student-friendly recipe!
I made these last night for a quick tasty dinner. They came out AWESOME!! I eliminated the mayonnaise & they still turned out great! Thanks for a great recipe!
Wow! here I sit with a spoiled chicken patty I let sit too long int he fridge and needed a quick recipe for dinner. Didn't think it was going to come out so good! Although I made a very generic version (minus the mayo and italian seasoning) it came out pretty tasty nonetheless. Thanks!
Great recipe and easy to prepare. Thanks for posting.
I'm so addicted to these I just had to increase the number of stars to 5! My prior review from 6/8/05: I made these tasty patties with raw ground chicken, rather than cooked chicken since I didn't have any leftover chicken lurking in the fridge. The flavor is subtle and tasty, and they're very easy to toss in the microwave for 4 minutes for a quick lunch. In future I'll knock down the amount of bread crumbs a bit, since it seemed like too much, although if using chopped cooked chicken the full cup might be just right. Great with barbecue sauce, honey mustard sauce, cocktail sauce, and horseradish sauce.
