Another recipe which made it to my library. Easy, quick, acceptable for the toddler and of course healthy are always the basic criteria.

You can put these patties in your sandwich or it also goes nicely with a salad. For the little ones you can serve it with any sides they like. (rice, veggies, pasta, couscous)

Preparation time: 10 min 

Cooking time time: 15 min


  • 4 x 170g chicken breast fillets, chopped
  •  1/3 cup (80g) ricotta
  •  1 tablespoon milk
  •  4 spring onions, trimmed, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon (or basel or dill)


  • Place the chicken, ricotta, milk, spring onion and tarragon in a food processor and season with salt and pepper.
  • Pulse briefly until the chicken is evenly minced – don’t overmix.
  • Using damp hands, form the mixture into 8 small patties (about 2cm thick), then chill for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a large non-stick frypan over high heat. Add oil, reduce heat to medium, then cook the patties, ifor 4-5 minutes each side until browned and cooked through.
