My wonderful friend Jenny shared this recipe with me. I love that these are so full of good protein, and have veggies in them too! What a great way to get more nutrients packed into a meal.
You can make up a big batch of these and freeze them for a quick meal another time. You know I love recipes like this that help me avoid a panic attack on busy days!
Chicken Patty Sandwiches
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cloves of garlic or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 cup shredded carrots
1 medium onion, chopped
sea salt to taste
Coconut Oil or Palm Shortening
In a food processor, grind raw chicken, garlic, carrots, and onions together. Add eggs and salt, blending all ingredients together well. Spoon mixture (about two tablespoons at a time to form a patty) into hot oil, frying on both sides for about 4-5 minutes each, or until chicken is cooked thoroughly. (I use Palm Shortening from Tropical Traditions because heating it for frying purposes does not compromise its health qualities. I also sometimes use Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil as it is just as healthy.)
Makes about 10 patties.
These patties taste great without a bun, topped with a tomato and sandwiched between pieces of lettuce. We also really like them with sprouted wheat buns we get from Azure Standard. Oh, and melted cheese on top is pretty tasty too!
Allow leftover patties to cool, then place them in a freezer bag for another meal. Rewarm in the oven or toaster oven for about 10 minutes.
I realize the following picture doesn’t look super pretty, but I wanted to show you the nice stack of chicken patties I was able to put into the freezer! You can’t even tell there are carrots in there. ;)
When served with lettuce and tomatoes, and a fruit smoothie or another side dish of fruits and veggies, this is one super healthy meal!
