Chicken Patty Croquettes (LC/GF)

Yields: 30 patties

6 large chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
4 large eggs
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper
1–2 Tblsp Tone’s Spicy Spaghetti Seasoning
1 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 cup Almond Flour/Meal
1/4 cup coconut oil, for cooking

Rinse and pat dry thawed out chicken breasts. Place chicken into food processor and process down until it looks pasty. It took me two passes to get all the chicken ground down. Pour ground chicken into a large mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients(minus the coconut oil). Mix until well combined.
In a large skillet, heat coconut oil (or your preferred cooking oil) over medium/high heat. Here’s the fun part, I didn’t exactly measure out the amount of chicken mixture for each patty. With a gloved hands, I grabbed about 4 fingers full of mixture and gently formed it into small patties. If you need a more accurate measurement, you could use 1/4 cup up to 1/3 cup. You can certainly make these smaller if you intend on using them for sliders!
Cook each side until lightly browned. Let drain on a paper towel lined plate.

To turn these into chicken parm sliders for a football game/tailgating event:

Dip each patty in your favorite pizza sauce and place on a foil lined baking pan. Cover each patty with mozzarella cheese and bake in a 375*F oven for 10 minutes. Just long enough for the cheese to melt. Serve on potato or Hawaiian rolls and enjoy!!

These were a huge hit and a quick dinner for the family on Wednesday night. True there is little labor involved, but these are so worth it! These freeze up well too, make the recipe as is and freeze them in packs of two. You’ll have a quick meal ready to go when you’re too busy to make a full blown dinner. Serve up with zucchini noodles, a homemade tomato sauce and you’ll have a simple filling meal in under 10 minutes! Provided that you keep homemade frozen sauce on hand that you can thaw out ๐Ÿ˜‰ Prepping ahead is easy and can make your future cooking experience more enjoyable!ย 

Hope you all enjoy and have a blessed week!!
