Chicken Fillet Patties

I am always on the lookout for new dinner recipes because let’s be honest, from time to time I feel like I am stuck in a circle by cooking the same type of dinner over and over again.

I do not own a lot of cookbooks. Just a few books that I took with me from Latvia when I just moved to Ireland and a few I bought myself later on. I used to buy lots and lots of cooking magazines, looking for some inspiration.  Some recipes worked well for my family, and I still make them. And some were a total fail. You live, you learn. Right?
Nowadays a lot of my inspiration comes from Pinterest. I have to admit, I am slightly addicted to it. Ok ok, I confess, I am addicted a lot. Here I said it : )
But sometimes an idea comes from your friends or relatives. Just like this recipe, I am about to share. About these chicken patties I first time learned from my friend. Well, actually they were turkey but chicken works as well as turkey. So, we were sitting drinking coffee and chatting about food, as you do, when I might complain and told her that I had no idea what to
cook that night for dinner. And she suggested I try turkey patties she makes
for her family. It is hit in her house, so I thought why not try as well, just with the chicken instead?
She told me the ingredients she uses and I slightly adapted them, just to suit my family’s needs.
You need to start by washing chicken fillets then pat them dry with a paper towel. After that transfer
to a chopping board and cut into small pieces. Transfer to a medium size bowl.
Next, you need to chop the onion, peel and grate the carrot. Transfer to the chicken. Then chop the coriander and as well add it to the chicken. Next peel one clove of garlic, mince it and add
to the chicken. After that add 2 tablespoons of mayo; season with salt and pepper, and mix all until combined. Cover the bowl with cling film and put it into the fridge for an hour.
After an hour, over medium heat put a non-stick frying pan and add oil.
To the chicken add the beaten egg and 3 tablespoons of flour. With a spoon (soup spoon), scoop
a generous amount of chicken mix and add to the hot pan, shaping a round patty. Repeat with the rest of the chicken mix. You may need to fry them in batches. Fry until golden on both sides and cooked through inside.
