Chicken Patties Recipe

  • In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, 1/4 of the plain breadcrumbs, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and Worcestershire sauce.

  • Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and shape them into patties.
  • In a shallow dish, add the remaining breadcrumbs, in a separate shallow dish add the milk.
  • Dredge each chicken patty in the breadcrumbs, ensuring an even coat.
  • Dip the patty briefly in the milk, then dredge it again in the breadcrumbs for a second coating.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Carefully place the breaded patties in the hot oil and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and cooked through. You may have to work in batches depending on the size of your skillet.
  • Once cooked, remove the patties from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  • Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauces or on hamburger buns with mayo, lettuce, and tomato. Enjoy!

Air Fryer Directions:

Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) and lightly grease the basket. Arrange the breaded chicken patties in a single layer, ensuring they do not overlap. Cook at 375°F (190°C) for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through. Ensure the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) and the patties are golden brown. If needed, cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.

Tips & Tricks

  • Use Cold Ingredients: Keeping your ground chicken and other ingredients cold makes it easier to shape the patties and helps them hold together better during cooking.
  • Even Portions: For evenly sized patties, use a kitchen scale or a measuring cup. This ensures consistent cooking times and presentation.
  • Moisture Matters: Don’t skip the milk dip! It adds moisture and helps the breadcrumbs adhere better, resulting in a crispier exterior.
  • Season to Taste: Feel free to adjust the seasoning to your preference. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper for a spicy kick or some chopped fresh herbs for extra flavor.
  • Avoid Overmixing: When combining the ingredients, mix just until everything is incorporated. Overmixing can result in dense, tough patties.
  • Rest Before Cooking: After shaping the patties, let them rest in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. This helps them firm up and reduces the chance of falling apart during cooking.
  • Oil Temperature: Ensure the oil is hot enough before adding the patties. A temperature around 350°F (175°C) is ideal. If the oil is too cool, the patties will absorb more oil and become greasy.
  • Batch Cooking: If your skillet is small, cook the patties in batches to avoid overcrowding, which can lower the oil temperature and result in uneven cooking.
  • Drain Excess Oil: Place the cooked patties on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil, ensuring they stay crispy and not soggy.
  • Serving Suggestions: Serve the patties immediately while they’re hot for the best texture. Pair with a variety of dipping sauces like honey mustard, ranch, or spicy aioli. For a complete meal, serve them on hamburger buns with mayo, lettuce, tomato, and pickles.
  • Make Ahead and Freeze: To save time, prepare and shape the patties ahead of time. Arrange on a baking sheet with parchment paper, then freeze until completely frozen.
  • Transfer the frozen patties to a zip-top bag and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to cook, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and proceed with breading and frying as directed.

FAQs about chicken patty sandwiches

Yes, you can substitute ground chicken with ground turkey, beef, or pork. The cooking time may vary slightly depending on the type of meat you use.

To make healthier chicken patties, you can bake them instead of frying. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and bake the patties on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through, until they are golden brown and cooked through.

Make sure the mixture is well-chilled before shaping the patties. Resting the shaped patties in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes before cooking helps them hold together better.

Air Fry the patties at 375°F (190°C) for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time to ensure even browning.

Cooked chicken patties can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Reheat them in a skillet or oven to maintain their crispy texture.

The best way to reheat chicken patties is to place them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10 minutes or until they are heated through. This helps retain their crispy texture. Alternatively, you can reheat them in a skillet over medium heat. Avoid using the microwave, as it can make the patties soggy.
