Who knew potato goes well in chicken patties
Who knew potato goes well in chicken patties

I found this in an the Spring Recipes edition of Orange Page magazine (オレンジページ 春レシピ), a cooking magazine published in Japanese. I was intrigued by the addition of mashed potato to the ingredients list and had to try them.  They were delicious and I think they would make good chicken burgers too.

Green Onion Chicken Patties

Orange Page, Spring Recipe Edition p. 23

300g ground chicken

1 large potato (Japan sized – outside of Asia use a medium-small sized potato)

1/2 bunch green onions

1 small egg

2/3 tsp salt

oil for frying

grated daikon radish

ponzu

Peel, boil (for about 10min) and mash the potato.  In a large bowl mix chicken, egg and salt together.  When the mashed potato has cooled a bit, add to the meat mixture.  Fold in the green onions.

Heat a pan with a tablespoon of oil. Drop large spoonfuls in the pan and fry 3min on each side.  Arrange on a plate and put a couple of tablespoons of grated daikon radish on the side.  Drizzle the grated daikon with ponzu and serve.
