This sounds great. We love chicken patties but I am afraid to know what is in them. I plan on making a few batches of these to freeze after the holidays are over. I got this from a TOH freezer meals book. Prep time is an estimate.
In a large saucepan, saute onion and celery in 3 tablespoons butter until tender. Combine flour and 1 cup milk. Gradually add to pan. Bring to a boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add parsley, seasonings and chicken. Remove from heat, chill until completely cooled.
Shape chicken mixture into 6 patties using about 1/3 cup mixture for each patty. Place crumbs and remaining milk in seperate shallow bowls.Roll patties in crumbs, then milk, then crumbs again.
In a large skillet cook patties in remaining butter for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve on rolls with lettuce and tomato, if desired.
Uncooked patties may be frozen for up to 3 months. To prepare frozen patties, cook in butter for 5-6 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
