LOOKING for: ground chicken recipes

linnea56October 31, 2007

HAve any great ones? Not burgers or white chili. I've tried subbing it in my regular chili and my meatloaf, and so far don't like it in those. Looking for something maybe more original, not just used as a ground beef substitution. Something that would complement its more delicate flavor. Thanks!

Here's one I highly recommend (from our own doucanoe (Linda)).


2 slices whole wheat bread
1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
3 Tblsp. low-fat mayonnaise
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
1/4 tsp. salt
2 large egg whites
2 tsp. canola oil

2 Tblsp. low-fat mayonnaise
2 tsp. prepared horseradish
1 tsp. bottled minced garlic
1/8 tsp. salt

To prepare cakes, place bread in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs measure 1 cup (discard remaining breadcrumbs). Set breadcrumbs aside.
Place chicken in food processor; pulse until ground. Combine chicken, chives, 3 Tblsp. mayonnaise, seasoning, 1/4 tsp. salt, egg whites, and breadcrumbs in a medium bowl; mix well (mixture will be wet). Divide mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add patties; cook 7 minutes on each side or until done.
To prepare aioli, combine 2 Tblsp. mayonnaise and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Serve with cakes.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 chicken cakes and about 1-1/2 tsp. aioli).

Linda's notes: The patties are really loose prior to cooking and fall apart easily once cooked. I would use a little more chicken next time around.

How about a Chicken Stroganoff? Sorry, it is a substitute for ground beef, but is equally delish.

chopped onions
sliced mushrooms
ground chicken
canned chicken stock
dijon mustard (optional)
hot sauce (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
sour cream or plain yogurt
worcestershire sauce (optional)

Serve over noodles, rice or potatoes. Yum!
