thai chicken patties with sesame ginger rice

14 Mar

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.




Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 20 min
Start to Finish: 30 min


  • 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.
