Thai Chicken Patties
500g fresh mince chicken
1 red chilli, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
3 teaspoons of minced ginger
1&1/2 tsp of ground cummin
1&1/2 tsp of ground coriander
bunch of fresh coriander
2 tbsp of fish sauce
3 spring onions, chopped finely
Put the whole lot apart from the spring onions in a food processor and blend till mixed well. Stir through the spring onions. Shape into balls/pattys. (Putting a bit of oil on your hands stops the mix sticking when you shape the balls!) I make mine about golf ball size, they flatten out as they cook. Brown on both sides in non stick frying pan. Then put in the oven for a few mins to finish cooking.
Serve with salad or veggies with soy sauce based dressing. Very tasty and filling. 500g of mince makes about 10 golf ball size patties. 3 patties, including the egg, meets the allowed protein serve on TF diet.
I varied the recipe for these a little: I left out the fish sauce as I dont care too much for the taste of that; I grated the zest of 1 lemon and added that to the mix, I also put in a tablespoon of light philli cheese to make the mix a bit creamier; you could also add a tablespoon or more of sweet chilli sauce instead of the whole red chilli, as this makes them a little sweeter and very tasty too, although the sweet chilli sauce has more carbs etc that a fresh whole red chilli.....up to you, but very very yummy served on a bed of baby lettuce leaves! Enjoy.
