Chicken and Broccoli Lunch Box Patties


by Nurse Nicky November 18, 2016

This super easy recipe was one I whipped up for lunches this week, but could equally be used for a quick dinner alongside a salad and some kumera wedges. These patties are delicious dipped in pesto or paprika mayo. They are a superb way to sneak extra veges into the kids without them knowing and hold together fabulously.

Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 10mins

Ingredients:

  • 400g chicken mince
  • 3/4 cup riced broccoli 
  • 2 Tabs ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tab coconut flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 Tabs coconut oil

 

Directions: 

1. Place 1/2 head of broccoli in the food processor and blitz till rice sized. Should make 3/4 cup of broccoli rice.

2. Place mince, broccoli, flaxseed, coconut flour, egg, mustard and salt and pepper in bowl and mix with your hands!

3. Heat the coconut oil over a large frypan.

4. Place the desiccated coconut on a plate. 

5. Shape mixture into patties and press into the desiccated coconut until coated both sides.

6. Fry patties for 4 minutes each side until brown and the coconut is crispy.

Serve with salad and wedges for a perfect fast family meal, or put into lunch boxes with some dipping sauce.
