This is a ‘Chicken Kiev’ inspired dish that is cheaper and more nutritious. Chicken Breasts are quite pricy. Let’s use Chicken Mince. It’s easy to add any finely chopped vegetables to the mince. For the filling, I have tried with Garlic & Parsley Butter just like ‘Chicken Kiev, but the butter tends to leak. That’s why I fill with Garlic & Parsley Cheese instead. Delicious!!!


Makes

4 Servings (8 Patties)

Ingredients

500g Chicken Mince
1 Onion *finely chopped
*Note: Add more finely chopped vegetables
1/2 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
1/2 Egg
Salt & Pepper
Oil for frying

Filling
2 cloves Garlic *finely chopped
1 cup grated Tasty Cheese (Cheddar)
2 tablespoons Parsley Leaves *finely chopped

Coating
1/4 cup Plain Flour *add more if you need
1 & 1/2 Eggs *whisked
1 cup Panko Breadcrumbs

Method
  1. In a large ball, place Chicken Mince and season with Salt & Pepper quite well. Add all Vegetables, Panko Breadcrumbs and 1/2 Egg, mix until well combined. Divide into 8 portions.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine Cheese, Garlic and Parsley. Make 8 rounds.
  3. Take 1 portions of chicken mixture and shape it into a round, place 1 cheese filling in the centre, and enclose. Flatten slightly. If the chicken mixture is very sticky, wet your hands with water will help. Repeat with the remaining chicken mixture and cheese filling.
  4. Coat with Flour, then dip in lightly whisked Eggs to coat, and finally coat with Panko Breadcrumbs.
  5. Heat deep frying Oil to around 180℃ and fry the patties for 2-3 minutes or until golden.
