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

This was too plain for me so I added 1 1/2 Tsp cumin curry paste. I enjoyed them but my husband would have enjoyed them plain. 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

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

I added one cup of cooked rice to the mixture. Used different seasonings - Mrs. Dash table blend and poultry seasoning and did use the garlic and onion. I didn't coat them in flour but made patties and baked them at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes or until chicken is done and starts to brown. Was really good without all of the oil and flour.

As is just ok but if you use flour & panko to coat helps. Also next time we'll add some spices or herbs cause it needs it bad. The taste was ok otherwise so just needs a boost. The worst part & I do mean WORSE is it smells when frying. It reminded me of warming up our old cats wet food to get the chill off. Needed to burn candles & spray the place after eating. With all that said we do plan on making again though. Oops forgot we used ground turkey so maybe that is why there was a smell. We didn't have any ground chicken & were in the middle of a blizzard so used the turkey. Read More

Will definitely make again. I had more than I needed from the recipe so I froze them uncooked. They are just as good unfrozen and cooked. Read More
