Chicken Rissoles in Mushroom Sauce
This is a rather unusual recipe as when I think of a rissole/pattie/burger you think about a bun of some sort. These are served as is and topped with a sauce as you would a chicken breast. We loved these and thought the flavour was so good. They are very easy to make, taste great and are budget friendly. I made a couple of changes to the original recipe which I have listed below.

1kg Ground chicken
1 Cup fresh breadcrumb
1 Tablespoon dried tarragon
1 Small onion, chopped
1/4 Cup mayonnaise

Mushroom Sauce

40g Butter
3 Spring onions, finely chopped
2 Cloves garlic, crushed
300g Button mushrooms, sliced
1 Teaspoon chicken stock granules
1/2 Cup white wine
1 Cup cream


1. Combine chicken, breadcrumbs, tarragon, onion & mayonnaise in a large bowl.

2. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions & shape into 1 1/2cm thick patties.

3. Heat a large fry pan & brush lightly with oil. Cook rissoles over medium heat for 8 Min”s each side, turning once only.

4. Remove from pan & keep warm while preparing sauce.


1. Melt butter in a fry pan, add mushrooms and garlic, stir-fry over medium heat for 5 Min’s or until soft and slightly browned.

2. Add spring onions and cook a couple of Min’s more, add wine, stock granules and cream, reduce heat, cook until stock has dissolved and sauce has thickened slightly.

I served mine over parsnip mash topped with spinach and caramelized onion.
