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.

Chicken Burger with Avocado Cream
Happy New Year to everybody, I haven’t posted anything for a couple of days as I was cooking up a storm at my mum’s for new years eve, followed by New Years day at the snow. It was a great time and the kids had so much fun especially my little niece who went crazy tobogganing, she is not used the the snow coming from Australia. Speaking of my niece, I am going to post the other recipe I made when she spent the night at mine last weekend, which was the chicken burger.
Be sure to check out my competions page that I have just started this year, I thought it would be fun to do a monthly competition with a different prize each month.


800g Minced chicken
3 Bacon rashers, finely chopped
1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese
3 Green onions, finely chopped
1 large egg (or 2 medium eggs.)
1/2 Cup panko flakes (Japanese breadcrumbs available at most Asian grocery stores, if you can’t get them regular are fine.)
Focaccia bread (or burger buns, whatever your preference.)

Avocado Cream

1 Avocado, chopped
125g Cream Cheese
1 Tablespoon lemon juice


1. Combine chicken, bacon, cheese, green onion, egg and breadcrumbs well in a bowl. Shape into 4 patties.

2. Heat a small amount of oil in a pan, add patties and cook until browned on both sides and chicken is cooked all the way through.

Avocado Cream

1. Allow cream cheese to sit at room temperature for awhile, to allow it to soften more, so it is easier to mix.

2. Combine avocado, cheese and lemon juice in a bowl with a fork until all the ingredients are well combined.

To serve: Place burger on focaccia or bun and top with avocado cream. You can also top it with any other veg or condiments you like such as tomatoes, sprouts or lettuce.
