I make this when I'm feeling like being really virtuous. It's very healthy and full of flavor. It requires a lot of ingredients but most are pantry items. I have no idea where this recipe came from any more.
Spicy low-fat chicken patty
1 1/4 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed of fat and finely chopped by hand
1/2 bunch scallions, finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves (or Italian parsley if you don't like cilantro)
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped, peeled, fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon grainy mustard
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Vietnamese chili paste
3 large eggs whites or 2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups quick-cooking oats coarsely ground in a blender or food processor
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Juice of 1 lemon or lime
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients except lemon juice in a medium size mixing bowl and mix well. Shape into six patties.
Place a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat and when it is hot, add the patties. Cook until deeply browned, about 4 minutes on each side.
Transfer skillet to the oven and bake for 8 minutes, or until the patties are thoroughly cooked.
Drizzle with the lemon juice and serve immediately.
