Pesto Chicken Potato Patties on plateThis is one of my latest favourite high protein foods that I reach for when I don't feel like having bread or pasta. These chicken patties have plain mashed potatoes added to them to satiate my need for carbs. I've added a couple tablespoons of pesto to the mix to give it some depth. You can absolutely have these in a burger, but I prefer them with a big fresh salad!

In this version, I used cooked leftover chicken that I ground up myself. If you're going to use raw ground meat, fry them for a couple minutes longer on each side. If you'd like to skip using the frying pan, cook the patties in a preheated oven at 375 F for 25 to 30 minutes.

  15. Heat some oil in a pan over medium-high heat, then add the patties. Cook for a few minutes on each side, until thoroughly browned. If you started with raw meat for your patties, cook longer.
