I love tuna patties. But lately, I do get more and more concerned about eating too much due to the mercury content. So consequently, we eat less and less of it. But I do miss tuna patties, so I thought I’d give this a try with chicken instead.
They made for a delicious lunch! I served them over greens much like you do with tuna patties and enjoyed every bite.
The recipe is easy enough for those of you with a food processor. You could do this in a blender too, but it will take a bit more work and effort. So if you have the option, definitely go for the processor.
You can make this even easier by using canned chicken if you so choose, but I’ve been using my Instant Pot a lot lately so it was easy enough to cook up a few frozen chicken breasts in minutes.
I firmly believe that chicken doesn’t have to be boring and this recipe is proof!
