Last Week's New Recipe
Each week I try and choose a recipe we haven't used before in ourweekly meals. I have a huge pile of recipes that have been torn out of magazines and this is a good way of making a dent in that pile. Last week's new recipe was a Donna Hay recipe - Lemon Thyme and Feta Chicken Patties. Served with a fresh salad, it made a nice light summer meal. Here is the recipe...
Lemon Thyme and Feta Chicken Patties
500g chicken mince
2 tbsp chopped lemon thyme leaves
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 egg white, lightly beaten
100g feta, roughly chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
4 vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced
2 lebanese cucumbers, sliced
1 cup basil leaves
red wine vinegar and olive oil, extra, for drizzling
cracked black pepper and lemon wedges, to serve
Place the chicken, lemon thyme, garlic, egg white and feta in a bowl and mix to combine. Using damp hands, divide the mixture into 12 patties. Heat oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the patties for 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked through and golden. Place the tomato, cucumber and basil in a bowl, drizzle with vinegar and extra oil and toss to combine. Top salad with patties, sprinkle with pepper and serve with lemon. Serves 4.
