Give regular minced chicken patty recipe a flavourful Asian twist into a juicy, slightly spicy and aromatic Thai chicken mince patties.

This is purely an experimental dish, which turned out to be an instant hit with adults and children alike.

These moist easy chicken patties or mince kebabs made with ground chicken breast combined with subtle oriental flavours can be eaten as a burger filling, in a wrap, with plain buttered rice or just as an appetizer.

The ease of this dish is that you can easily combine all the ingredients together in a blender and grind it together into a course texture.

All that is then left for you to do is shape them into patties and shallow fry.

Ingredients For Chicken Mince Patties

A distinct flavour of this dish is the use of Kafir lime leaves popularly used in Thai cuisine.

The leaves impart a very fresh taste, reminiscing of a Thai chicken curry so I thought of naming the dish ‘Thai chicken patties’.

Apart from the kafir leaves, there is a  combination of Southeast Asian flavours , like Japanese miso paste and Indian sweet mango chutney.

Making these minced chicken patty was fun due to the contrasting textures and tastes.

The bland taste and crunch of green papaya combined with the smoothness of minced chicken. Bringing the dish together was the sweetness of mango chutney, the heat from the chilies, the sourness of lemon juice, the nutty flavour of miso paste and the fresh aroma of kafir lime leaves.

Below is the snap shot of the ingredients I used:

Cooking Tips & FAQ’s

  1. Do not over blend the ingredients into a paste. It should be slightly coarse in texture.
  2. Miso paste and mango chutney already have added salt so watch on the salt intake.
  3. Do not overheat the oil else the kebabs will burn.
  4. Turn the kebabs over only after you see 3/4 of each rounds has turned opaque.
  5.  If for some reason the kebabs do not keep the shape and starts to break then add an egg to combine.
  6. Use boneless chicken breasts or thighs.
  7. You can also use pre-minced chicken. Blend the other ingredients in a blender and add them to the minced chicken and give a good mix.

How to make juicy chicken breast patties?

To keep the chicken patties moist and juicy, avoid over blending then mix, pressing down the patties hard to flatte and flipping them to early and too often.
