Chicken Pancakes

This is a recipe from my Great-Grandmother Sullivan. She made this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was a great way to use up left over chicken.... she had 15 children.... nothing went to waste.

How to Make Chicken Pancakes


  1. Mix together all of the batter ingredients well. If the batter is too thin, add flour. If it is too thick, add a little milk. The batter should be thick. Add the onions and chicken. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Cook on hot greased griddle as you would any pancake, turning over after bubbles appear.
  3. *** Serve with chicken gravy, cheese sauce, butter, or syrup (personally, I don't care for the syrup).
