Chicken Patties (Easy Chicken Cakes) VIDEO

Everyone loves these Chicken Patties, even the pickiest eaters! They are crisp on the outside with a juicy, cheesy center and it’s a genius way to use leftover Rotisserie Chicken.

Chicken Patties Video Tutorial:

We love making these anytime we have leftover chicken and no one would ever guess you used leftovers. The chicken becomes super tender and tasty when combined with the batter and the panko crust seals in the moist center.

Years ago, we shared our favorite Cheesy Chicken Fritters recipe and it was an instant hit. So many of you let me know that it works just as well with cooked chicken so we tested it and loved it, then this Chicken Patties recipe was born. So, thank you for making this recipe happen!

Ingredients for Chicken Cakes:

Chicken cakes are super easy to make. All you need is a rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken meat, a simple batter, mozzarella cheese, and Panko bread crumbs (or use whatever bread crumbs you have on hand). The lemon zest and dill seem insignificant, but they completely transform these chicken patties.

Can I Substitute the Chicken?

  • Canned Chicken – make sure to drain well and use (3) 12.5-oz cans of chicken.
  • Raw Chicken – If you want to use raw diced chicken or even ground chicken, check out our chicken fritters recipe.

The Easiest Way to Shred Chicken:

There are three basic ways to shred the chicken: by hand, with 2 forks and our favorite is to use a stand mixer.

To shred chicken with a stand mixer: This method works best if your chicken is still warm. Break chicken breasts in half and mix on low speed with the paddle attachment until chicken is shredded. Be careful not overmix since it takes seconds to shred. Try this method for Pulled Pork or Crockpot Pulled Chicken.

Can I Make Chicken Patties Ahead?

You can make these ahead up to any point in the process, even to bread them then refrigerate for a couple of days until ready to saute.

The USDA recommends refrigerating cooked chicken or leftovers up to 4 days so it depends on how long your leftover chicken has been in the refrigerator. I cook half of the batch on the first day and sautee a fresh batch a couple of days later.

How to Reheat Chicken Patties:

The air fryer is our favorite method since it makes the crust crisp again. The microwave is our least favorite method because the crust softens but the patties will taste great even microwaved. This is one of the few chicken recipes that we still enjoy reheated in the microwave.

  • Air Fryer – you can re-crisp chicken patties in the air fryer at 350˚F for 4 minutes, flipping halfway
  • Skillet – place on a dry non-stick skillet over medium heat and sautee until crisp and just warmed through
  • Microwave – microwave 30 seconds at a time, or just until the center is warmed through.

How to Serve Chicken Patties:

Just like our salmon cakes, shrimp cakes, and classic crab cakes, we love serving these as appetizers or a light lunch. Here are some creative ways to serve a chicken patty:

  1. Chicken sliders – make a chicken sandwich or sliders on Hawaiian sweet rolls
  2. With a sauce – like the lemon aioli dip that we used for Crisp Zucchini Bites. You could use Avocado Ranch or plain ranch.
  3. Main Course – serve chicken patties as the main protein with mashed potatoes and a fresh salad.

More Leftover Chicken Recipes:

We love to repurpose leftovers and make easy meals out of them. We especially love recipes that make the chicken taste even better like these Chicken Patties. Here are more creative ways to use leftover chicken:

Cuisine: American

Calories: 185 kcal
Servings: 14 patties

Ingredients

  • 4 cups shredded chicken from 2 large chicken breasts, (16 oz by weight)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp fresh dill finely chopped (or 1 Tbsp parsley)
  • 3/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp lemon zest plus lemon wedges to serve
  • 1 1/3 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil to saute divided
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together: 2 eggs, 1/3 cup mayo, 1/3 cup flour, 3 Tbsp dill, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp black pepper and 1 tsp lemon zest.
  2. Add in shredded chicken and 1 1/3 cups shredded mozzarella then stir until chicken is well coated in batter.
  3. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the mixture at least 30 minutes (this will help with forming patties). Use a trigger release ice cream scoop to divide into 12-15 cakes then form into 1/2-inch thick patties. Dip both sides in Panko crumbs.

  4. Place a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil and half of the chicken patties. Sauté for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown, adding more oil as needed. Repeat with remaining patties.

  5. As soon as patties are off the heat, sprinkle with salt and squeeze fresh lemon juice over the patties. Serve warm.

    I made this over the weekend and everyone loved them. I shredded the chicken in the food processor as that was easier for me. I hope you did not mind, but I added some extra spices – coriander powder, paprika, cumin and then some green chillis.
    Adding the salt and lemon on top as soon as they are made. Really, gives them extra bit of taste.
    I will definitely, be making these again. They are so easy to make.

    Loved it. It was a hit with the whole family. I look forward to trying it using other herbs and seasonings as well. I think this is a great recipe. My son ate the patties on bread and wants me to make them a little on the spicy side for him which will be easy to do. I wish I would have found this recipe when my kids were little. Loved it, it is getting added to my recipe box!

    One question, if I mix 4 1/2 cup shredded chicken instead of 4, there is not much batter left to hold all the chicken together. What can I do to slightly increase the batter?

    • Natasha
      January 1, 2021

      Hi Cheryl, it would be best to increase all of the batter proportionally, but if it’s just a little dry, you can add a little more mayo or a little more egg to moisten it up.

      Hi Mary, it should work fine in the air fryer or the oven as well. We always make them on the skillet, so I don’t have exact baking times. If you experiment, please let me know how it goes. Also, when baking, I would suggest spraying lightly with cooking spray to get a golden crust. To be honest, I haven’t tested this by freezing it to advise. If you experiment, I would love to know how you like that.

Followed the recipe to a T with those exceptions… and cooked them on parchment in the air fryer (400 for 10mins, flipping 1/2 way and drizzling with olive oil at first and after flip) They’re delicious and a great way to use the breasts of rotisserie chicken which often become too dry when reheated!

    Do you think that you can make them into patties and then freeze them to fry at another time.

    Would it be better to fry and then freeze?

      Hello Karen, to be honest, I haven’t tested this by freezing it to advise. If you do the experiment I would love to know how you like that.

        Hi! I made these a month ago. I assembled them and then froze them. Took them out as needed and I fried in the olive oil frozen and then baked them. Just as good as the first day!!

        Making a batch today for my son to take back to college! Tasty recipe!

      I was wondering the same. What did you end up doing Karen? Did you put panko on and then freeze them without frying?

    Hi, can I skip the dill or replace it with something else?

      Hi Sofia, you can use 1-2 Tbsp of finely chopped parsley instead. It would still taste great if you skipped it also.

      You can make these ahead up to any point in the process, even to bread them then refrigerate for a couple of days until ready to saute. The USDA recommends refrigerating cooked chicken or leftovers up to 4 days so it depends on how long your leftover chicken has been in the refrigerator. I cook half of the batch on the first day and sautee a fresh batch a couple of days later.

    They look delicious. I can’t use the cheese. Do you think I should just skip or add something else?

      Hi Nancy, I have not tried using something else to advise. The cheese helps hold everything together so I’m not sure how it would turn out without it.

    I made your recipe my own! Chicken patties were by the book, but I simmered the chicken parts for a few minutes, made a roux and added the broth. Instant delicious gravy. Had one little dish of refrigerated mashed potatoes…added the gravy and a patty and I’m a happy girl!

      Hi Karen, it should work fine in the air fryer or in the oven as well. We always make them on the skillet so I don’t have exact baking times. If you experiment, please let me know how it goes. Also, when baking, I would suggest spraying lightly with cooking spray to get a golden crust.

    These are great alternative to chicken nuggets! I’ve used canned chicken before and it turns out absolutely fantastic. Great served with barbecue sauce, ketchup or whatever sauce the kiddos currently love.
