Chicken and Rice Patties

Chicken and Rice Patties

My kids adored these. They thought they tasted just like my fried rice. I wasn’t sure I would like them cold and while they are even tastier hot, they did taste great cold too.

I made these for school lunches, but they would make a great picnic food or made in mini muffin trays they would be a great finger food for a party.

    I have a shed load of leftover cooked rice…and a garden full of large “need to be pulled out” spring onions…thank you!

    Looks great – I’m going to give these a whirl – cause they’ll replace my cheese and garlic scones which are very wheaty, and not doing me any favours
