Chicken Fillet Patties

I am always on look out for a new dinner recipes,
because let’s be honest, from time to time I feel like I am stuck in a circle
by cooking same type of dinner over and over again. 

I do not own a lot of cook books. Just a few
books what I took with me from Latvia when I just moved to Ireland and few I
bought myself later on. I used to buy lots and lots of cooking magazines,
looking for some inspiration.  Some
recipes worked well for my family, and I still make them. And some were total
fail. You live, you learn. Right?

Nowadays a lot of my inspiration comes from
Pinterest. I have to admit, I am slightly addicted to it. Ok ok, I confess, I
am addicted a lot. Here I said it : )
But sometimes idea comes from your friends or relatives.
Just like this recipe I am about to share. About these chicken patties I first
time learned from my friend. Well, actually they were turkey but chicken works
as well as turkey. So, we were sitting drinking coffee and chatting about food,
as you do, when I might complained told her that I had no idea what to
cook that night for dinner. And she suggested I try turkey patties she makes
for her family. It is hit in her house, so I thought why not to try as well,
just with the chicken instead.

She told me ingredients
she uses and I slightly adapted them, just to suit my family needs.
You need to start by
washing chicken fillets than pat them dry with paper towel. After that transfer
to chopping board and cut into small pieces. Transfer to a medium size bowl.
Next you need chop the
onion, peel and grate the carrot. Transfer to the chicken. Than chop coriander
and as well add to the chicken. Next peel one clove of garlic, mince it and add
to the chicken. After that add 2 tablespoons of mayo; season with salt and
pepper, mix all until combined. Cover the bowl with cling film and put it into
fridge for an hour.
After an hour, over
medium heat put non-stick frying pan and add oil.
To the chicken add
beaten egg and 3 tablespoons of flour. With a spoon (soup spoon), scoop
generous amount of chicken mix and add to the hot pan, shaping round patty. Repeat
with rest of the chicken mix. You may need to fry them in batches. Fry until
golden on both sides and cooked through inside.
