Greek Chicken Patties


This was our first tiny harvest from this year's garden, mint leaves to go in our Greek inspired dinner:



Greek Chicken Patties

1 lb. ground chicken

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/4 cup chopped mint leaves

1 egg

2 cloves of finely chopped garlic

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir well. Place 2 Tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and make sure the bottom of the pan in well coated, so the patties won't stick. Form 8 patties and fry until golden brown on each side. Serve on pita bread with lettuce, tomato, and tzatziki sauce (recipe below).

serves 4


Tzatziki Sauce

1 6-ounce container of plain Greek style yogurt

1 4-inch piece of peeled and finely chopped cucumber

1 clove of finely chopped garlic

2 Tablespoons of chopped, fresh mint leaves

salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything together and chill.
