  • 2 (8oz each) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  • Place the cooked chicken cubes, eggs, kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne in your food processor's bowl. Process into a uniform mixture.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Drop the mixture into the hot oil, measuring 1/4 cup per patty and fitting 4 patties into the skillet. Gently flatten them to 1/2-inch thick with the back of a spoon.
  • Cook the chicken patties until crispy and golden brown, 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet and cook the remaining patties. Serve immediately.
