Poultry alternative to crab cakes. Turkey may be substituted. Excellent way to use leftovers!

I pulsed the chicken in a food processor instead of shredding it and added an egg to the mixture to make it hold together better. I also didn't have tartar sauce so I just subbed more mayo. Could have made it a bit spicier. It turned out great! My 9 month old loved it. I will definately make again. Read More

This was just ok. I made 2 batches: one with chopped chicken but the cakes fell apart while cooking and one with all the ingredients in a food processor. The second batch held together and looked more like crab cakes but they definately did not taste like crab cakes. Just sort of plain. Will not make them again. Read More

I found this because I had leftover already cooked chicken from making quesadillas the night before. It's a fresh idea for left over chicken. I chopped the chicken breast in my food processor until it was pretty fine. This is key. I mixed it with egg mayonnaise garlic salt paprika and tarragon. I dipped the patties in egg and coated them in panko breading. pan fried in a non stick rachel ray small frying pan lightly sprayed with olive oil. I felt inspired to then put them on a baking sheet cover them in marinara sauce sprinkle each one with mozzerella and broil until the cheese was browned. They were good that night and they were good as leftovers. Read More

Recipe was outstanding! I used leftover rotisserie chicken and substituted Dijon mustard for Tarter Sauce to give it a little flavor. Read More

What a fabulous recipe! Both my husband and I don't like seafood so these are a tasty alternative and a great way to use up leftover chicken. A squeeze of lemon on top before eating makes all the difference. Will be making these again for sure!! Read More

I started to make this recipe and realized (after I shredded the chicken) that I didn't have any of the ingredients other than chicken and crackers. So I added grated parm cheese and enough tomato soup to form patties and then cooked them as directed in this recipe. My family loved it so much I made a second batch 1/2 way through dinner!

These were O.K. but not anything I would seek out. My husband liked them much better than I did. Looked like crab cakes. Read More
