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.


  1. Hmm, if I wasn't a vego I'd give it a go. I made vegie fritters last night that I will be finishing off today at lunch.
    I'm like you, I keep tearing out recipes and must get around to trying them. I find really useful as well.

  2. What a great idea! I am slightly 'addicted' to purchasing new cookbooks regularly. I'm inspired to take a leaf out of your book Amanda to try a new recipe each week. I've set myself the challenge. Thanks for the inspiration. It's all about being organised with the assistance of some 'planning time'. Patties look Y U M!

  3. Oh YUM Amanda! These look and sound sensational! We will be giving these a try this weekend :) Thank you so much for the recipe. Off to Coles I go to get the ingredients! Have a lovely day - Tina x

  4. These look really nice and they dont look to complicated to make. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Sarah - yes is one of my regularly visited sites too. It's a great resource.

  6. Amanda - they look delicious and I will be giving them a try next week! Chat to you soon!

  7. Oh my! Chicken of my weaknesses!
