Tuscan Chicken Cakes with Golden Aioli

READY IN: 38mins
Recipe by Lorac

A delightful summer main dish. The cakes can be made ahead and frozen. Make small cakes to serve as an appetizer. This recipe is from our special friends - Ray and Anita. They were our next door neighbors for 23 years. Our children grew up with 2 sets of parents.

I just loved this recipe, the flavours blend so well. The golden Aioli is just great. I thought it may have been too sweet but it was perfect. I have already made little appetizer cakes and put them in the freezer at work, I know our clients will love them.
