wow dinner tonight was really good! i’m going to have seconds as soon as i’m done typing 🙂 i doubled the garlic and ginger and used a package of ground chicken instead of putting everything in a food processor. i also shaped them into patties about the size of hamburgers instead of mini like the recipe says. I broiled them 10min on each side. YUM! I served them with Near East sesame ginger rice.
- 1 small onion, roughly chopped
- 1 clove garlic (i used 3)
- 2 tsp grated fresh ginger (i used 4)
- 1 green chile or jalapeño, seeded (i used a jalapeno)
- 4 (1-3/4 lbs total) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces (used a package of ground chicken)
- 1/3 cup cilantro leaves
- 2 tbsp low-sodium fish sauce
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs (i used seasoned)
- Sweet chili sauce
- Lime wedges
1. Combine onion, garlic, ginger and chile in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add chicken, cilantro and fish sauce and pulse until well blended but not quite puréed. Transfer to a bowl and stir in egg whites and bread crumbs.
2. Heat broiler to high with rack 4 inches from heat. Line 2 baking sheets with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray. Coat hands with cooking spray and shape 24 patties, about 1/2 inch thick; place on baking sheets.
3. Broil each batch until patties are lightly browned, about 4 min, then turn patties over and broil 4 min more. Serve with chili sauce and lime wedges.
