Thai chicken patties

Chicken patties like this are such a healthy and easy option when you want something tasty and quick for dinner. These patties are packed with delicious Asian flavours thanks to a good dollop of green curry paste, spring onion and plenty of coriander. Everything is mixed together in one bowl and fried up in the pan in a matter of minutes.

While the patties are frying, you can cook up some rice noodles or long grain rice to serve them with along with fresh sliced cucumber, tomato, extra coriander and whatever else you like!


  • 400g chicken mince
  • 2 tablespoons Thai green curry paste
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
