SRC: Thai Inspired Chicken Patties with Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce

I’m glad to have you join me today. This is the last SRC reveal for 2015 and how this year has flown by. It’s hard to believe that December is here. Its my favorite time of the year. Christmas decorations are starting to appear all over the place. Christmas carols have started playing. Bloggers have started holiday baking and cooking. Everything starts feeling festive. Shoppers are going nuts in most stores. There just is such a buzz this time of the year you cannot replicate at any other time. Have you started your Christmas planning, decorating and shopping yet? I’d love to hear about it.

For this month’s SRC reveal, I was assigned Andrea’s lovely blog Adventures In All Things Food. I thoroughly enjoyed reading through it. Andrea and her family have moved from the city to her husband’s family farm and blogs not just about recipes and the food she cooks, but about life on the farm as well. I loved reading about it. I don’t think I ever mentioned this before, but my husband has always dreamt of working the land. So these posts felt really special. I was spoiled for choice this month. She has so many delicious recipes, both sweet and savory. I had a hard time narrowing it down. I can’t wait to try out her Gyoza, Tiramisu Cheesecake, Roasted Vegetable Tart, Pea and Leek Risotto and her Cherry Pie Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies, to name a few πŸ™‚

For the reveal I decided to try out her Thai Inspired Chicken Patties. There is so much to love in this recipe. For starters you use ground meat. You sneak some veggies into the patties and you could tell the kids that these are Christmas confetti patties, with the green from the zucchini and reddish orange of the carrots speckling the patties. They are full of flavour and yes, please remember to serve it up with some sweet chilli sauce. That is a combination you will love. These patties will be a part of my weeknight dinner rotation. I stuck to the recipe but used just 1lb ground chicken instead of 1 1/2lb. since thats all I had. And used lemon juice instead of lime zest.

Thanks Andrea, for a lovely recipe.

Thai Inspired Chicken Patties


1lb. Ground chicken meat
1/2 large white onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 cup zucchini, grated
1 carrot, grated
1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 red/green chilli (I used birdseye because we like our food hot)
2 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Sweet Chilli sauce, for dipping
Salt, to taste

Sprinkle some salt on the grated zucchini and keep aside for about 5 minutes. Drain all the liquid and place in a large bowl.

Mix with all the other ingredients except the sweet chilli sauce.

Heat a griddle pan or the grill.

Lightly spray with some oil.

Form the mix into patties about 1/2 inch thick and sear both sides about a couple of minutes.

Place on a baking sheet and finish off in a 350ΒΊ oven for about 5 minutes or till they cook through.

Serve with the sweet chilli sauce and a large salad.
