Greek Chicken Cakes

Several years ago my friend Melissa introduced me to this Tuscan Chicken Cake Recipe and it has become one of my favorite recipes. It is great for entertaining or just a family dinner (my kids love them). I decided to recreate them with a Greek spin. If y’all know me you know I LOVE Greek food (and Mexican, two favorites). They turned out awesome and I will now be making these on repeat. Filled with creamy feta, tangy pepperoncinis and several herbs they are so good! I served ours on a Greek salad but you could really do any side. These are best prepped ahead as they need to sit in the fridge 30 minutes- 1 hour before cooking. Enjoy!

G R E E K C H I C K E N C A K E S

1 Rotisserie Chicken shredded

1/2 white onion diced (red would work too)

3 tablespoons pimentos

3 tablespoons chopped pepperoncins

1 egg

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs (I used Whole Wheat)

1/3 cup crumbled feta

3 tablespoons mayonaise

1 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon chives

1 teaspoon parsley

salt and pepper

Tzatziki for topping

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Then mold into patties, it should make 8 smaller sized cakes. Place on a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour before cooking. This helps them not to fall apart when cooking them.

In a non stick skillet heat about 2-3 tablespoons olive oil on medium heat. Add the cakes. Cook about 5 minutes per side. I flip mine 2-3 times just to check progress and make sure they don’t burn. After they are cooked remove from pan and place on a paper towel- I like to do this to soak up extra oil.

Then serve with tzatziki + Greek Salad

You can really make your Greek Salad any way you want. I prefer spinach but had iceberg on hand so I used that.

Iceburg

cherry tomatoes

cucumbers

kalamata olives

sliced baby peppers

feta cheese

pepperoncinis

red onion (I didn’t have this but normally I add it )

crushed pita chips

For the dressing I just whisk olive oil and red wine vinegar and season with salt and pepper and pour over the salad
