This is a great way to use up leftover chicken breast. Deli chicken is perfect for this dish. I serve these chicken cakes with my orzo and rice pilaf and steamed vegetables for a fast and tasty meal. Enjoy!

How to Make CHICKEN CAKES (Bonnie's)

Step-by-Step

  1. MAKE THE CHIPOTLE SAUCE
    Mix all the ingredients for the chipotle sauce in a small bowl.
  2. MAKE THE CHICKEN CAKES
    Mix the chicken, chipotle sauce, onion, egg, jalapeno rings, cilantro, panko bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Combine thoroughly, using a little more panko if needed, and gently shape into 4 to 6 patties.
  3. DREDGE THE CHICKEN CAKES
    Lightly coat each cake on both sides with flour, then egg, then panko bread crumbs. Cover and refrigerate until ready to cook.
  4. FRY THE CHICKEN CAKES:
    Heat oil in a nonstick frying pan unil very hot but not smoking. Fry the chicken cakes without crowding until golden brown. Serve each cake with a tablespoon of the chipotle sauce.
  5. COOK'S TIP
    It is a good way to use leftover chicken, pork chops, or turkey and you can change it up with your own ingredients. Once you learn the technique, you will memorize it, as it is very easy to prepare. I serve whole cranberry sauce with turkey cakes. I serve hot apple pie filling with pork chop cakes. I am sure you can come up with your own variations!!
