Chicken and haloumi patties recipe

These versatile little chicken and haloumi patties can be enjoyed in so many ways: with salad, wrapped in a flatbread, in a hamburger bun with lettuce and tomato, or on their own in a lunch box with some raw veggies on the side.

Serving Size:

Serves 4-6

Category:

Ingredients:

  • 500g chicken mince
  • 180g haloumi, grated
  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup (45g) breadcrumbs
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil

Method:

In a large bowl, combine mince, haloumi, zucchini, egg and breadcrumbs. Season well with salt and pepper.

Form into small patties. Refrigerate until ready to cook.

Heat oil in a large non-stick frypan over gentle heat. Cook patties for 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove from pan on to a plate lined with absorbent kitchen paper to take off any excess oil.

Notes:

  • These versatile goodies are delicious warm or cold. They're also great to eat as reheated leftovers.
  • The very best way to combine the ingredients is with your hands - get stuck in!
