Baked Chicken Patties
*Photo below* I was looking for a new way to make chicken breast that would be tasty, yet juicy and not bland. I was watching YouTube videos and came across a video that inspired this recipe and I decided to put on my experimenting hat. If you like to eat clean and are looking for a new way to make chicken breasts, I hope you enjoy this recipe!
4 chicken breasts, 1 medium onion (grated), 1 egg, salt, black pepper, red chilli flakes, garlic powder, Italian seasoning (sage, thyme, rosemary etc), and olive oil.
P.S. Add the seasonings to your taste.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit or 218 degrees Celsius.
- Mince (cut up into very fine small pieces) the chicken breasts.
- Grate the onions.
- In a bowl, combine the minced chicken breasts, grated onions and egg and mix evenly.
- Add the salt, black pepper, chilli pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and olive oil. Mix evenly.
- Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.
- Using your hands, scoop a small portion of the mixture and make a medium sized ball and lay it on the lined baking pan.
- Do this to all the mixture in the bowl until you have several balls on the pan. This recipe should make 8-10 balls.
- You can flatten the balls a little with a spoon, so that they cook evenly.
- Put the pan in the preheated oven and let it bake for 25 mins or until fully cooked (It depends on how your oven operates).
- Once it’s cooked, take it out of the oven immediately and let it cool for 45 minutes.
- You can eat them alone or with any dish.
It’s very common to make banana bread with overripe bananas or simply throw them away, but what about banana pancakes? I prefer my bananas more on the unripe side or slightly ripe side, but I also don’t like throwing food away (thanks for the life lessons mother). If you’re like me and you are wondering what else to do with your overripe bananas, here’s a simple recipe I came up with and I hope it works for you too! They are filling and delicious.
P.S. I don’t add sugar to my pancake batter. I enjoy maple syrup with my pancakes sometimes, especially if they are fluffier, but most times, I enjoy my pancakes with fresh lemon juice and sugar or in this case honey – in the spirit of avoiding processed cane sugar.
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 salt
- Maple syrup or lemon & sugar (to your taste)
- In a medium sized bowl, put the peeled bananas in and mash it with a fork until all the chunks are gone.
- Add the eggs and use a spatula to mix thoroughly.
- Add flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt to the mixture and mix thoroughly.
- Add butter to a frying pan and heat it up.
- On low-medium heat, pour small quantities of the batter in the frying pan and fry both sides until well-done.
- Enjoy with maple syrup or lemon juice and sugar/honey.
