Chicken Patties with Carmelized Onion & Garlic Sauce

Written By: Chris - May• 21•14

Want a quick and delicious meal?  Make a chicken patty!  We enjoy ground chicken once in a while for a change from the typical ground beef burger.  I assembled this quick and easy dish using items that I had on hand in fridge.  Both Bill and I love caramelized onions and peppers; as well as garlic, so throwing this dish together was a breeze!  You could certainly eat yours on a bun, but we’re trying to cut back on the carbs.



1 lb. Ground Chicken
1 Egg
1 teaspoon Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper, to taste

1 Onion, sliced
1 Red Bell Pepper, sliced
Olive Oil

1 Tablespoons Butter
1/4 Cup Onion, diced small
1/2 Cup Cream + 1 Tablespoon
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
2 Garlic Cloves, pressed
Salt and Pepper, to taste

Saute cut onions in oil until they start to become caramelized.  Reserve about 1/4 Cup for sauce and add the sliced red peppers and cook over medium heat, tossing frequently until soft.  Set aside.

For the sauce, combine the the cooked onion with the butter and saute until the caramelized onions are hot.  Add garlic, salt and pepper and stir.  Add the cream and heat through.  In a separate bowl, mix cornstarch and the tablespoon of cream until dissolved.  Add to mixture to the hot cream and stir constantly over medium heat allowing it to thicken to desired consistency.

For the burgers, place chicken in a mixing bowl and combine the egg, oil and salt and pepper.  The mixture will be very wet so form it into patties and place into the heated olive oil in a large skillet.  Fry patties until a nice crust is formed and they are cooked through, about five to eight minutes per side.  Serve immediately.


We enjoyed this with a side salad and a wonderful “Wild Yeast” 2011 Chardonnay from Wines of Origin Robertson Estate Wines, from South Africa.  Delicious!
