Chicken Patties

I’m always in search of ways to use left-over chicken.  This recipe for chicken patties is a great way to disguise left-over chicken.  These chicken patties can be served on a bun as a sandwich, topping a salad, or as the protein served with a potato and vegetable.

Best of all, these chicken patties are kid friendly.


  • cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 sleeve saltine crackers
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning (can use less if you like)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper


  • In a large bowl, stir together chicken and cracker crumbs.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together all other ingredients.
  • Pour wet mixture into bowl with chicken and stir until well combined.
  • Cover with dish towel and allow to sit for five minutes.
  • Form into 5-7 patties. You can freeze at this time if you wish and cook them later.

To cook:

  • Place about 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet and heat over medium high heat for a few minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add patties.
  • Cook until well browned on both sides, flipping once.
  • To cook from frozen, follow same instructions but allow longer cooking time. Remove from heat once hot through.
  • Serve on or next to salad  or on buns with mayo, lettuce, and fresh tomato.
