Feel free to use whatever meat that your kids prefer - chicken, turkey, beef, bison - my daughters like all kinds. In this recipe I used fresh ground chicken.
Ingredients and Preparation:
Chicken Patties - Mix up the following ingredients in a bowl:
- half a pack of ground chicken (8-10 oz - for 2 kids)
- A little bit of chopped onion for flavor
- 1 egg -for binding
- a little bit of chopped parsley - for color and flavor
- sea salt
- just a pinch of spices - make kids smell the spices to pick one ;-)
Heat up a pan; my favorite pans are ceramic coated (no sticking, no side effects in a long run), I use real butter; scoop a large spoon of your raw mix and put into a pen. Fry for 1-2 minutes (depending on their thickness) on each side - and patties are done! These patties were not dipped into flower, however, you can roll them in a flower to create a crispy effect.
As a rule in our home, lunch and dinner are always eaten with some sort of veggies. To garnish this plate I cut carrots in small circles and put around cucumber shredded into long noodles (kids make fun of me that I feed them cucumber worms). I found that kids will try absolutely ANYTHING if it looks adorable and fun in their eyes, so I experiment with cutting veggies and laying them out in all kind of funky ways. Bon Appetite!
