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!

Ingredients

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.

Preparation Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit or 218 degrees Celsius.
  2. Mince (cut up into very fine small pieces) the chicken breasts.
  3. Grate the onions.
  4. In a bowl, combine the minced chicken breasts, grated onions and egg and mix evenly.
  5. Add the salt, black pepper, chilli pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and olive oil. Mix evenly.
  6. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.
  7. Using your hands, scoop a small portion of the mixture and make a medium sized ball and lay it on the lined baking pan.
  8. Do this to all the mixture in the bowl until you have several balls on the pan. This recipe should make 8-10 balls.
  9. You can flatten the balls a little with a spoon, so that they cook evenly.
  10. 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).
  11. Once it’s cooked, take it out of the oven immediately and let it cool for 45 minutes.
  12. You can eat them alone or with any dish.
  13. Enjoy!

Banana Pancakes

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.

Ingredients

  • 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)

Preparation

  1. In a medium sized bowl, put the peeled bananas in and mash it with a fork until all the chunks are gone.
  2. Add the eggs and use a spatula to mix thoroughly.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt to the mixture and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add butter to a frying pan and heat it up.
  5. On low-medium heat, pour small quantities of the batter in the frying pan and fry both sides until well-done.
  6. Enjoy with maple syrup or lemon juice and sugar/honey.
