You are going to love this new recipe I am sharing today! No, it's not a cookie or other baked good - like I have been sharing as of late - it's chicken and broccoli fritters with cheese! These chicken mince patties bursting with broccoli and cheese are a new favorite of mine and it's not hard to see why.
While fritters typically refer to fruit, vegetables, or meat that has been battered and deep fried, these broccoli chicken fritters with cheese are made using minced chicken and an egg to hold everything together, then fried in a regular frying pan with just enough oil to stop them from sticking. They're still delicious!
The ingredients are simple, every day things and can easily be customized to suit your tastes:
The process to make these delicious broccoli chicken patties is very easy:
Step 1: heat oil in large frying pan over medium heat, then add onion and garlic, stirring frequently until onion is starting to soften. Add the broccoli and cook until tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool
Step 2: While the broccoli mixture is cooling, shred the cheese, mince the herbs, and mix in with the ground chicken along with an egg. Once the broccoli mixture is cool enough to handle, add it to the chicken mixture and mix well
Step 3: Divide the chicken mixture into 6 even portions, and flatten each into a patty shape (these are large enough to be eaten on a burger bun, so if you;d like more of a nugget size, make 12 even portions!).
Step 4: Cook patties in a pan over medium heat with a generous amount of oil (to prevent sticking) for about 5-8 minutes each side, or until chicken is cooked through and an internal temperature of at least 165 F is reached.
What you serve with the broccoli and chicken fritters depends on what type of meal you're going to use them in. We love to eat them with a side of veggies and garlic dill twice baked potatoes, or on a bun with french fries, or even just served with a salad!
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in large frying pan over medium heat, then add onion and garlic, stirring frequently until onion is starting to soften.
Add the broccoli and cook until tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool until it can be comfortably handled
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, egg, rosemary, oregano, cheddar and parmesan cheeses, and salt and pepper, then add the cooled broccoli mixture and mix until a uniform consistency is reached
Shape the chicken mixture into 6 equal patties, then cook in the remaining one tablespoon of oil over medium heat until cooked through, about 5-8 minutes per side (until they are at least 165 F in the center and the juices run clear)
