Chicken and Sage Patties

Pin It

Pink Bites is a blog where I share the foods that I cook and eat at home. Real food that is. The kind that works for me, my husband and that fits our life style. For me, that means keeping budget in mind. I believe it is possible to eat healthy and well without breaking the bank.

So with that in mind, I present you, reader, with yet another chicken recipe. This one is great because it can be used in so many different ways. I made these patties for Andrew and kept them in the fridge for a few days. I fried them as I needed, and he ate it in different ways:

1- In a sub sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes and onions.

2- Alongside brown rice and vegetables for a complete meal.

3 - As a breakfast meal inside an English muffin with cheese and eggs.

It's a good thing Andrew doesn't mind leftovers, or eating the same food for days, because this recipe makes a lot of patties!
I found this recipe at the Martha Stewart website

Chicken and Sage Patties Recipe:

2 lbs ground chicken

1/2 an onion, finely chopped (I used red onion)

1 garlic clove, minced

2 tbsp spoon of finely chopped sage

1/4 cup of finely shredded carrots (I used my box grater)

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 1/2 teas salt

1/4 teas pepper

olive oil, for frying

Combine chicken, onion, garlic, sage, carrot, mustard, salt and pepper. Shape the patties (about 2 inches each) and place them in a baking sheet.

You can fry them right away in hot olive oil for about 2 minutes per side, or you can refrigerate them, covered and fry later. It makes about 17-20 patties.

Hi Rita,

I found your blog via Serious Eats and I am so thankful! I'm a single mom with a 10 year old daughter, we both have a deep rooted love of food and cooking. Unfortunately, my pockets are not as deep. Thanks to your blog, I've done the unthinkable...I planned our dinner menus for the next two weeks, will prepare something new and different each night and I stayed under budget at the market. We're so excited!! Last night was chicken patties, delicious and I was able to put a whole mess of them in the freezer. Thanks so much for your love of food and dedication.

Kenna and Pearson: your comment made may day, I am so happy to know that you are enjoying the recipes. I really belive that eating good food doesn't have to be expensive. I don't have deep pockets either, and I think most recipes here at Pink Bites reflect that. I hope you keep cooking and enjoying it!
Thank you for your nice words.
