Keto Chicken Patties

Try these keto chicken patties for a great lunch or dinner main dish.

These zero-carb ketogenic poultry patties are extremely soft and crispy, making them an excellent choice for meal preparation that will be consumed any time and paired with fresh greens or your preferred dipping sauce.

Ingredients

1-and-a-half pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/4 of a teaspoon of garlic powder

¼ tsp black pepper

1 tsp oregano, dry

1/2 milligram of onion powder

½ tsp paprika

½ tsp salt 3 tsp olive oil

Instructions

After being thoroughly washed and dried with paper towels, the chicken should next be cut up into bite-sized pieces.

Put chicken pieces in the food processor or mixer grinder and give it a few pulses until it is coarsely broken down.

Now add all of the ingredients and blend them together until they are barely incorporated, but be careful not to produce a paste because that is not what we want.

Take the chicken out of the food processor and shape it into three or four chicken patties.

Prepare a pan for frying by heating it over medium heat.

Once it is heated, add the olive oil.

Place the chicken patties in the pan, cooking them for three to four minutes on each side until they are golden brown. Each patty should have one teaspoon of olive oil.

To ensure that the cooking is even on all of the sides and edges, press down with the spatula at intervals.

Turn down the heat to prevent the food from burning.

Done!

Serve piping hot with the dipping sauce of your choice.

Here’s a variation on this keto classic.

Ingredients

2 and a half tablespoons of chopped cooked chicken (canned chicken or rotisserie chicken)

2 huge Eggs or 3 medium

½ tsp Salt

1/2 tsp of Garlic Powder

12 teaspoon of dried minced onion 14 teaspoon of black pepper 14 teaspoon of smoked paprika

A half cup of grated Parmesan cheese and a quarter cup of freshly chopped spinach

2 tablespoons of celery, cut very coarsely

3 table spoons of coconut oil

Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked chicken, eggs, salt, garlic powder, minced onion, pepper, smoky paprika, parmesan, spinach, and celery.

Form into approximately 10 patties of equal size using firm packing.

Even though they are delicate, the cheese will cause the patties to come together when they are heated.

To cook the patties, heat some oil in a skillet and shallow fry them until they are golden on all sides. (approximately 2-3 minutes).

Allow to cool, then savor.

Advice: You can freeze it for up to two months. Refrigerator for up to four days. If you are going to use canned chicken, make sure that you pat it dry as much as you can.

To reheat, either use the stovetop or the microwave for one minute.

If you find this recipe too rich and bloating, leave out half of the dairy.
