I think chicken patties earned a bad reputation because it’s true they can be boring at times. Sometimes we have to dress them up with fatty ingredients in order to make them interesting, and yes, I’m aware that dryness is a given in most cases. But you haven’t tried this recipe yet. When you do, I’m sure you’ll agree that these chicken patties are fabulous. In fact, they are so good, you may not even need the bread.
The secrets to this juicy, tasty and scrumptious recipe are the sweet chili juice and the shallots, lots of shallots. Sometimes I add a too many because I love to eat the caramelized shallots that fall off the patties. If you make this recipe, you’ll see what I mean. It would be a crime to let those crispy caramelized bits go to waste. Enjoy!
