I pulsed the chicken in a food processor instead of shredding it and added an egg to the mixture to make it hold together better. I also didn't have tartar sauce, so I just subbed more mayo. Could have made it a bit spicier. It turned out great! My 9 month old loved it. I will definately make again.



I found this because I had leftover already cooked chicken from making quesadillas the night before. It's a fresh idea for left over chicken. I chopped the chicken breast in my food processor until it was pretty fine. This is key. I mixed it with egg, mayonnaise, garlic salt, paprika, and tarragon. I dipped the patties in egg and coated them in panko breading. pan fried in a non stick rachel ray small frying pan lightly sprayed with olive oil. I felt inspired to then put them on a baking sheet, cover them in marinara sauce, sprinkle each one with mozzerella and broil until the cheese was browned. They were good that night, and they were good as leftovers.



I LOVED this! Before serving I squeezed fresh lemon juice over the cakes. This was excellent.
