Chicken Cakes With Chipotle Mayo

"I got this from the Costco cookbook and it was become a family favorite. You can use a cooked rotisserie chicken. I have also used canned chopped chipotle peppers instead of the powder with good success. If you want to use this as an appetizer just make 24-36 little cakes."

  1. I made this last night, when I only had 1 chicken breast. I made small little cakes and they served 4 perfectly (with vegetable sides, of course). I used canned chipotle, but I only had one. Next time I will use more, as I like things very spicy. Really great recipe!!!


I love I get paid to read snail mail and email. It is an awesome free portal where you get paid for what you are already doing on the web. I live in Utah with my husband and son. They are my taste testers and are very happy that I love to cook. During the summer we camp and cook via dutch oven. My falls and springs are filled with canning. When I am actually working I do medical coding from home so I can take care of my son. One thing I appreciate about Zaar is it keeps me from saying. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=100%> <img src=""> <img src="">
