Chicken Patties With Ginger and Sesame Seeds

Total Time

This is a recipe from one of Madhur Jaffrey's books. I was looking for a different way to get my husband to eat lean meats and this worked (even though he did still put it on a bun). I served it with rice and Korean dipping sauce and it was yummy--no leftovers and even the kids ate some!!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the scallions crosswise into thin rounds, including some of the green. Peel and mince the garlic and finely grate the ginger.
  2. Put the chicken in a bowl and mix with the scallion, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, sesame oil, soy sauce, pepper, and chili powder.
  3. Shape the mixture into 6 patties.
  4. Lightly oil a non-stick frying pan and cook until done, turning once. Recipe states these can also be grilled.
  5. Serve with Korean dipping sauce.
  6. NOTE: My patties were a bit soft so I did add a small amount of bread crumbs to help them hold their shape.

Very very good! I loved the flavor. I did add some bread crumbs to the mixture. The patties were a bit soft before cooking, but they came out just the perfect texture after cooking. I served them over brown rice with hoisin sauce. Thanks!
