These Chicken Patties are keto-friendly and, taste fantastic. Crispy and golden on the outside, chicken, Cheddar cheese and green onions on the inside- they're ready in only 25 minutes. The texture of the canned chicken is actually ideal for this chicken patty recipe, because it binds better than diced cooked chicken, making a mixture that's perfect for pan-frying in olive oil until golden. And, there are so many ways to serve them! Try them served with your favorite keto sauce for dipping, or on top of a salad instead of salmon or shredded chicken. You'll start keeping canned chicken in the pantry just so you can make these Keto-Friendly Chicken Patties!
Place the chicken into a bowl and break it up into smaller pieces with a fork. Add the egg, mayonnaise, almond flour, green onions, cheese and lemon zest and mix well.
Shape the mixture firmly into 8 patties (if the patties fall apart easily, place the patties onto a baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes).
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the patties to the skillet and cook for 4 minutes. Turn the patties over and cook for 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Repeat with the remaining patties and remaining oil, if needed. Serve hot.
