This recipe for chicken patties is one that I have used for years, but I’ve updated it to be grain-free, dairy-free, and on plan with Trim Healthy Mama. They are sure to be a hit with your family. Enjoy them with spicy mayo, ranch dip, marinara sauce, or in a sandwich, there are so many different ways to serve these patties.

You can double or triple this recipe and freeze the extras. They don’t take long to thaw, just heat them up in the oven or a skillet on the stove top for a super quick meal.

Here is a funny little story of my history with chicken patties. When I was first married I was a very bad cook. I would buy frozen chicken patties and fry them for my husband. The funny part is that I burned them every. single. time. And then I would serve them with the darkest side down, hoping he wouldn’t notice. Ha. He must have really loved me. Here’s a little lesson in frying anything – pay attention!

A food processor makes mincing the cooked chicken a breeze, but if you don’t have one you can shred and then mince your chicken using a cutting board and a chef’s knife.

You can change up the flavor of the patties by adding in some cajun spice, a little more chili powder, or your family’s favorite seasonings.

    The measurement for the golden flaxmeal just says “1/2.” 1/2 of what?


    • MamaShire (Author)

      Oops! Thanks Angela! I have it updated now. 1/2 cup. 🙂

  2. Jan Johnson

    This is such a great idea! I often have leftover chicken and I’m going to make these next time I do!

    Can I substitute Baking Blend for the Flaxmeal, and what can I substitute for the nutritional yeat?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Rosalie, I haven’t tried it with the baking blend. You could try it, but it wouldn’t be grain free using the baking blend. Also, flaxmeal has a good binding quality that I am not sure if the baking blend would have. I would suggest experimenting with it and see how you like it.

      The nutritional yeast could be left out. It is there mainly for the flavor, so you could add some other spices to your own taste.

    I made these for the first time tonight, and I really liked them. I like how well the patties hold together. I think next time I might saute the onions first, and I’ll try adding some more herbs or spices for a little more flavor. Maybe some garlic! Thank you for sharing your recipes! Quick and tasty! I’m still just wading into THM but some of your recipes are my favorite go-tos right now.

      Thank you, Anne! It’s my pleasure. That’s a good idea to saute the onions first, and the garlic. I love garlic.
