Plus, they are the perfect texture with a crisp outside and the inside is juicy and flavorful. You really cannot go wrong with this amazing chicken patty recipe!

Ingredients to Make Chicken Patties

  • Ground Chicken: Ground chicken can be tricky to know when it’s done just by looking at it. Make sure to use an internal meat thermometer and check to make sure that it’s 165 degrees before you eat it!
  • Breadcrumbs: You can use regular breadcrumbs or Italian flavored breadcrumbs in this recipe.
  • Garlic Powder: This adds a lot of delicious flavor into the meat.
  • Salt and Pepper: These will enhance all of the flavors in the recipe.
  • Egg: I always try and use large eggs when I am cooking.
  • Mayonnaise: The mayo keeps the patties moist.
  • Worcestershire: I love adding some depth with this sauce.
  • Green Onions: Use these to add flavor in the patties and also to garnish the top!
  • Flour: I used all purpose flour in this recipe.

Cooking Tips

To help you make sure that your chicken patties turn out perfectly, I have a few tips for you to try out! But beware, once you cook these once, you will be hooked!

  • Don’t crowd the skillet: Don’t try to cram too many patties in to cook at once. Just do 2-3 at a time and they will be easier to flip.
  • Use a meat thermometer: When you are cooking with ground chicken it can be tricky to tell when it’s done just by looking at it. Use an internal meat thermometer and when the chicken reaches 165 degrees fahrenheit then they chicken patties are good to eat!
  • Medium heat: Don’t let your stove get too hot or your patties will burn. Taking a little more time to cook them on a medium heat setting instead of high will be worth it for that crispy, juicy crunch!

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

  • In the Fridge: Once they have cooled, you can store your leftover chicken patties in an airtight container in your fridge for 3-4 days.
  • To Reheat: I like to reheat my patties in the air fryer so they are nice and cripsy again! Cook them for 3-4 minutes at 350 degrees, flip and then cook for another 3-4 minutes. You can also reheat them on the skillet for a few minutes on low until they are heated throughout.
