One of the things that I tend to miss with a low carb diet is fried food.

I know that fried foods aren’t supposed to be an every day thing, but sometimes you just want that crispy exterior that you’ll only get from something that’s been fried.

These chicken patties came about during a fried food craving and they’re DIVINE.

This chicken patty recipe takes my keto salmon patties and swaps in chicken. Super simple and a total hit – especially if you’re on the fence about salmon, like I am.

How to make chicken patties:

You’ll want to start with cooked and shredded chicken. You can use a rotisserie chicken to keep things simple or you can even use canned chicken.

Add the chicken to a mixing bowl along with some almond flour, eggs, mayo, garlic, green onion, dill, parsley, salt, and pepper.

Stir that up real well and then use a medium cookie scoop (affiliate link) to scoop out a ball of the mixture into your hand.

I like to use a cookie scoop because it ensures that everything is sized the same and they’ll all cook evenly.

Scoop the mixture into your hand and gently flatten it out.

Pop the chicken patties into a hot skillet with melted butter.

Fry these up for about 3 minutes per side, just to brown them on each side and get them a bit crisp and warmed through.

I like to dip these chicken patties in spicy ranch dressing. Just take my homemade ranch dressing and drizzle in some Frank’s Red Hot until it’s as spicy as you’d like.
