    To use up leftover mashed potatoes and make my vegetarian friends happy, I substituted chopped broccoli for the chicken. Everything else was the same as the recipe. It was a hit!

    My dear Sharon, I have made this useful recipe for the Cookathon in memory of your darling husband, on Oct 15, 2010. I often have leftover chicken (usually the breast part, as we prefer legs and wings). This is a very practical, quick, easy and usable recipe. I did not make appetizers, but rather large patties, to use for dinner. I formed the patties and put it in the fridge for 1 hour. It was not too difficult to handle then. Rolled it in crumbs, and fried in shallow oil (but a lot of oil). Maybe the original way of making small bites, and then deep-frying, would work far better: I apologise. I really needed to use up the roast chicken breasts for another dinner. I used it skin and all, as all the flavour was on the skin where I'd seasoned it. I also used seasoned salt instead of plain salt: mine contained dried peppadew, dried rosemary, hot pepper and dried garlic. But still, the patties were too bland, even with the mayo mixture I made. I love the idea of mashed potatoes mixed with chopped cooked chicken, and next time will simply add flour (or something) to firm up the patties some more. Thanks, this is an adaptable recipe, and vey, very handy for chicken leftovers!! (Blessings and peace to you in this trying time). Photos to follow: having problems.
