Chicken Patties

This CHICKEN PATTIES are crispy on the outside and full of tender chicken and plenty of fresh herbs for loads of flavor. Dip these chicken patties in my spicy ranch dressing for a real treat!

One of the things that I tend to miss with a low carb diet is fried food.

I know that fried foods aren’t supposed to be an every day thing, but sometimes you just want that crispy exterior that you’ll only get from something that’s been fried.

These chicken patties came about during a fried food craving and they’re DIVINE.

This chicken patty recipe takes my keto salmon patties and swaps in chicken. Super simple and a total hit – especially if you’re on the fence about salmon, like I am.

How to make chicken patties:

You’ll want to start with cooked and shredded chicken. You can use a rotisserie chicken to keep things simple or you can even use canned chicken.

Add the chicken to a mixing bowl along with some almond flour, eggs, mayo, garlic, green onion, dill, parsley, salt, and pepper.

Stir that up real well and then use a medium cookie scoop to scoop out a ball of the mixture into your hand.

I like to use a cookie scoop because it ensures that everything is sized the same and they’ll all cook evenly.

Scoop the mixture into your hand and gently flatten it out.

Pop the chicken patties into a hot skillet with melted butter.

Fry these up for about 3 minutes per side, just to brown them on each side and get them a bit crisp and warmed through.

I like to dip these chicken patties in spicy ranch dressing. Just take my homemade ranch dressing and drizzle in some Frank’s Red Hot until it’s as spicy as you’d like.

Storage & Reheating:

We think these chicken patties would freeze really well, though we haven’t tried it. Freeze (or refrigerate) after cooking and reheat them in the air fryer at 380 degrees until they’re hot and crispy again. Alternately, bake at 400 until heated through.

    I’m not a fan of almond flour. Do you think I could exchange it for ground pork rinds??

  2. Thank you so much for all your recipes. Have only tried the deviled eggs, and I could go on and on about the Chaffles. Am going to try the crock pot fajitas this weekend. I don’t understand why some people will give you such a hard time. The recipes are good and I am glad you are doing this

      Hey Pam! It’s just the nature of the internet. People don’t realize it’s another person on the other end. Anyway, thank you!! I’m so glad you enjoy the recipes. Hope you love the fajitas too! 🙂

    I tried this and I absolutely loved it. Will make this again and again. My husband also enjoyed it too.

  4. I made these for my picky French husband and he loved them so thank you! Goodness, ever since we had them the first time – I’ve been wondering how long it would be before I could make them again! So yummy and SO easy! Wow! Thank you a million times over! They lasted for food prep as well, so nice!

        The nutrition facts shows to be only 3 patties. It seems to be more than that.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Probably! I’ve never tried it though, so I can’t say for sure! I’d mist with a little cooking spray and cook at 400 for 3 minutes as a starting point. 🙂

      1. Hi Karl, will it work if I use the same amount of chicken mince instead of the shredded chicken breast?

  5. Hi Karly just a question where can I get almond flour from having huge trouble getting it or is there some other flour I can use please let me know thanks kaz

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Kaz! I’ve seen it in every chain grocery store I’ve been in. Walmart carries it, if nothing else. 🙂
