Chicken Patties

Chicken Patties
Makes about 15 patties or muffins

2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts** (read note below)
1 Medium Carrot
1 Medium Zucchini
2 cups Texmati or Basmati Rice
2 Eggs
1 cup shredded Mozzarella
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder

*Preheat your oven to about 375 degrees

1) Finely grate the carrot and zucchini in the food processor, then set aside in a bowl
2) Chop the chicken breasts in the food processor until it looks like ground chicken
3) Put the chicken into a large mixing bowl - add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. I eyeballed this part, but I'd say 1-2 tsp of each depending on your personal tastes. Mix well.
4) Add in the carrot, zucchini, chives, rice, eggs, and Mozzarella and mix well
5) Lightly grease regular muffin tins (Mine made 15) -- using a medium or large cookie scoop -- fill your muffin tins. I put in 2 scoops to with mine which filled the tins 90% full.
6) Bake for about 45 minutes or until the internal temp is about 160 degrees.

** My family of 4 ate 13 muffins between us -- so larger families will need to adjust the recipe accordingly.

John and I had this with a salad for dinner, and the boys had some corn. My roasted veggies would be a great addition for this meal as well.

Do you cook the rice before putting it into the bowl?
