These homemade herbed chicken patties are something TRULY special. They’re crispy on the outside, meaty on the inside, and packed full of fresh herbs and delicious flavor. They’re great for fall & are an amazing “turkey” substitute for thanksgiving.
I used The Abbot’s Butcher Premium Chopped Chicken for this dish, because it works PERFECTLY for this & adds so much amazing flavor to the dish. Plus its so easy to cook up, and is made with actual whole food ingredients so it’s a plant based alternative I don’t feel bad about eating regularly. They’re sold all over Los Angeles, but also are carried through a few online vendors that ship nationally as well. You can find all of the information on their website & Instagram!
In a food processor, add your chopped chicken, fresh rosemary & thyme, flour, flax eggs, lemon juice, and salt / pepper to taste. Pulse until a “dough” forms. Shape it into whatever shapes you want! I usually just do round patties, but you can make them more of a cutlet shape, really whatever you want! Wrap in parchment paper and place in the fridge for at least 10 minutes to allow them to set up a bit.
Once they’ve rested a little, add about 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil into a skillet over medium heat. Add in a few chicken patties at a time (I usually do 2 at a time), and cook for 3-5 minutes per side or until crisp and golden brown. Flip and do the same. Serve them up on a sandwich, in a burger, on a salad, or as a turkey substitute for thanksgiving!
And that’s it! SUPER easy chicken patties! This is amazing for the holidays, or honestly any time during the next couple months. Big thanks to the Abbot’s Butcher for working with me on this recipe, their chicken really adds some amazing flavor to the dish. Make sure to tag me on Instagram @plvntfood or #plvntfood if you make this, so I can see & share your recreations! Love y’all from the bottom of my cold little heart.
