30-minute chicken patties

A quick and easy dinner idea that can served on their own or in pasta or on a bun. 



  • 3/4 bunch cilantro, ends removed, including stems and leaves
  • 1 white onion, cut in half
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 3 green chillies, tops removed
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, for frying


  1. Add cilantro, onion, garlic, ginger, green chillies, chicken, oregano, black pepper, paprika and sea salt to a food processor and pulse to process. Be careful not to over-process
  2. Using clean hands, transfer the mince mixture onto a board or plate, shape it into a circle and divide it into eight portions
  3. Shape each portion of minced chicken into a patty using your hands. There is no need to refrigerate them
  4. To cook raw chicken patties, heat half the olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Then, carefully add four chicken patties and fry for two minutes
  5. Use a spatula to carefully flip the patties and cook for another minute. Then cover the pan and cook for three minutes on medium heat or until golden brown
  6. Flip them once more and cook for one last minute. Then, remove the patties from the pan and let them rest on a plate for five minutes. Repeat the process with the remaining uncooked chicken patties and olive oil. 
  7. Serve immediately with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice - which is optional. Enjoy!
