It’s Fiesta time here in San Antonio which means that we’ve had a really busy weekend and I’ve eaten more than my share of fried foods on a stick.
In fact, we had a late night last night filled with fireworks, homemade tortillas, and Mariachi bands.
So, I’ll be back later with a real post but in the meantime who wants to know how to make Chicken Cakes?
You do. I promise you do.
Even if you don’t think you do.
Plus, I promised my dear neighbors that I’d post this recipe on the blog because they let me borrow an egg. Without that egg there would have been no chicken cakes last Tuesday night.
And our home would have been filled with much weeping and sorrow.
Thank you Jana and Bill for that egg. My family is indebted to you for saving us from a fate of Hamburger Helper.
Chicken Cakes with Remoulade Sauce
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 medium size red bell pepper, diced
4 green onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
3 cups chopped cooked chicken (I buy Tyson roasted chicken because I believe I’ve mentioned I cannot deal with raw chicken without a resulting need for extensive therapy)
1 cup soft bread crumbs (I use Progresso bread crumbs with Garlic and Onion)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (you can use light or fat free)
1 tablespoon Creole mustard (or stoneground mustard if you can’t find Creole)
1 tsp. Creole seasoning (like Tony Chachere’s)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Remoulade Sauce (recipe follows)
Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper, green onions and garlic. Saute 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Stir together bell pepper mixture, chicken and next five ingredients. Shape mixture into 6-8 patties depending on the size (you can also make mini-patties to serve as hors douerves)
Fry 4 patties at a time in 2 tablespoons hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all patties are cooked. Serve immediately with Remoulade Sauce.
And here’s where I’d show y’all the finished product, but I ate them too fast and forgot to take a picture.
1 cup mayonnaise
3 green onions, sliced
2 tablespoons Creole Mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4-1/2 tsp. ground red pepper
Stir together until well-blended.
And if you have leftovers the next day, put some remoulade sauce and a chicken cake on some toasted bread.
You will be so glad you did.
Yum! I think I could eat one of these for breakfast. Is that wrong?
Cake? Did somebody say “cake”?
It is so funny that you mentioned going to your neighbors for an egg because my family and I went to Earth Day, here in San Antonio, and they had a booth set up with the title “Can I borrow an Egg?”. The whole deal about the booth is that they are trying to encourage people to tear down walls and encourage building relationships in your neighborhood. They even have a caniborrowanegg website. As always, you have a direct link with the pulse of what’s hot. How do you do it?

Sounds yummy!! We’ll have to give it a try soon.
Sister Honey Bunch
Amy Beth @ Ministry So Fabulous!
Since I can’t cook, do you think you could just come to my house and make these for me? I’ll keep C entertained while you do it!
On a weird, TMI note – I really wanted to write “whilst you do it.” I have GOT to get it through my head that I’m not a Brit! 🙂
Ok. Looks fabulous. Sounds gross. The words chicken and cake shouldn’t go together. It’s just wrong. So glad you posted pictures, because it was able to get the Chicken Cake yucky thoughts out of my head and replace it with a yummy looking dinner that will definitely grace my family’s table this week.
Thanks for the recipe. I’ll try to take a picture of the finished product. But I ain’t promising anything.
Sounds good, but it’s really not the same without a final photo. The photo of raw chicken just didn’t do it for me. 🙂
Wow. That’s what I call good eating! Thanks for the recipe!
OK, I stink bad at cooking, but I want to give this a try, to impress people, and fake that I am a chef. BUT….I don’t know how to say Remoulade sauce, when I serve my guests, I want to sound official and impressive…do I say it with a french flare? Or a Texan flare?
I wrote this down, and I’m going to try it this week. Can’t wait. Hubs will be SO IMPRESSED we are having something other than mac and cheese.
Kelly @ Love Well
Can I skip the chicken cakes and go straight to the fried food on a stick?
I’m ready for some summer fair … um, fare.
I have a red bell pepper in the frig. Now all I have to do is go and buy the rest of it. :>)
Sounds like something that would make my Chris very happy!
I will be adding that to our menu soon!!
The Pumkin Patcch
Ooohhhh, you mean mean woman you. My mouth is now watering because of you and this delicious recipe!! LOL
Thanks for sharing…will be making soon!
Hmmm, I see a connection here. I made homemade tortillas on Friday for the homemade flautas. We’re kindred spirits, Melanie. We’re kindred spirits.
While this dish certainly look delicious, I only cook meals with four ingredients or less. Feel free to add my poor family to your prayer list…
Reminds me of salmon patties, but without the salmon you know. Looks interesting. Thanks!
OH, yum! I wish my man liked things that looked like you put colorful confetti in it. Next time you make it let me know and I’ll come relive you of a few.
I want one right now! They look great and I like Tyson chicken too!
Yeppers, mouth watering over here. Too bad I only know how to operate the microwave.
So I have to tell you this. I went to the Vicki Courtney “you and your girl” event near my home here in northern Virginia. It was awesome. Take Caroline the minute she hits 3rd grade.
But I digress.
I sat on the front row (cause I’m that type A) and wanted to be as close as possible to her to see if some of that great parenting stuff might rub off on me. She started the first session and it was really great. At least I think it was because I had a burning question roaring in my ears the entire time.
As soon as she sat down (kinda next to me) I rushed over and said “I just have to ask you this. It’s killin’ me.”
She looked at me so sweet and I could tell she was thinking I was going to ask some deep question about how to disentangle my child from some internet danger.
I had an even bigger question.
“Did you and Melanie ever get to reschedule your lunch?”
Then we both hooted and hollered.
We three could SO hang out.
oh food. glorious food. how do i love thee? let me count the ways. i need to be there for fiesta time!!
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I’d love the idea of trying this as an appetizer. Fiesta time sounds like so much fun.
Yah, how do you say Remoulade Sauce? Is it like Worhchesshhshshhshshshhirrrrer?
happy aggie muster day, big mama!!
MMmmmm, fiesta time is every night at our hosue. Except not. Unless we order out. Sounds good though.
Tortillas, heated canned or homemade refried beans, monterey jack or jack cheese, onion, lettuce, spicy sauce.
Fold and smile.
Hey Big Mama! I made the chicken patty dish last night. Thanks for posting a recipe. I needed to have a quick dinner because of our busy baseball schedule! I made it more of a mid-west version because I didn’t have creole. Who knew! But my family loved it!
I bought the ingredients this morning! Except in our little small town grocery store, I couldn’t find Creole mustard but I did find remoulade sauce in a jar.
When I pick my kiddos up from school (in a town north of us) I’m swinging into wally world to see if I can find some! If not, I’ll just have to make some substitutions!
I’ve been craving this since you posted it!
Mmmm! I’m printing this one up for dinner next week! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Jana and Bill
You are welcome. And soon there will be onions and tomatoes and green beans if we can get the cutworms to quit mowing down the sprouts. And peppers. And cukes.
Love, Jana and Bill
Jana and Bill
ps. Thanks for the recipe!! I got so excited seeing our names on the internet, that I forgot to say thanks for remembering my one requirement for loaning you an egg!
