This is a good recipe but had to tweak a bit so that I used half of the chicken and substituted the other half with minced potatoes. I ran out of mayo so I used heavy cream instead. To make the mixture more stable and not fall apart when placed on the pan, I reduced the flour by half and substituted the other half with cornstarch; these were combined straight into the mixture instead of rolling the mixture on them. I had to set the mixture aside for 5-10 minutes in the fridge to allow the ingredients to bind together, and just before frying I added around 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs to add a bit more crunch to it. Turned out great. Read More

It was ok. A little bland. Recommend more seasoning or a sauce. Read More

My small town grocery store doesn’t carry ground chicken so I use shredded roasted chicken. I’ve tried both onions raw and sautéed in this and we prefer them sautéed first. The smoke from the roasted chicken and splash of lawrys seasoning in the flour make this a new favorite at our house! Even my very picky 3&7 yr olds eat it all up! We serve it with a dollop of sour cream, potatoes and corn. Read More

I've been making this for years but differently - I use a large can of chicken mashed up with sauted onion, celery, add some dry Colemann's mustard, mayo and cracker crumbs. Also throw in some dry dill, plus salt and pepper. NEXT I BREAD THESE HAND FORMED CAKES /CROQUETTES in some flour before I fry them up. everyone loves them. can't always find ground chicken in g. store Read More

They were good! The fresh parsley and onion made for a wonderful combination of flavors and texture. I could not find ground chicken at my grocery store so I substituted ground turkey. And I used olive oil maynnaise. Word to the wise you will make a mess; make sure to have paper towels on standby and plenty of hand soap. But it is so worth it. I ate mine by themselves and dipped in BBQ sauce. Read More

These patties were ok. IF I make them again I might use a little less flour and seasoned salt instead. My kids enjoyed them though. Read More

I used to say "these are great for a change of pace". Now they are becoming 1 of my staples! The only tweaks I made were eliminating the mayo and adding some Tony's and cayenne seasoning. And this is also becoming a fav of my Husband's...so even better! Thanks Kelli Read More

We enjoyed this very much. I made it to the recipe but next time might add some spices to make it more 'adult'. My husband says it doesn t need it though. I found the raw mix very moist and hard to form into patties. I got the hang of it but it needed more flour to toss it in...v-e-r-y gently! The onion needs to be chopped quite finely too or it makes them a bit crumbly. Definitely a keeper. Read More
