Chicken Cakes

Delicious Chicken filling in a scrumptious Potato & Carrot mixture - fried to perfection (any cooked Chicken can be used, leftover, rotisserie etc)

We all know Fish Cakes, which I love by the way, but ever had some Chicken Cakes ? This is such a treat and ever so easy to make.

I used Rotisserie Chicken from the supermarket, but any cooked Chicken - the meat only - will do. I think one Chicken yields about 3 cups of shredded meat which is more than enough, and if you have any filling left afterwards you can always use it on sandwiches or with a crunchy salad for lunch the next day.

I make my Chicken Cakes fairly big, about an adult hand size when folded over and ready to be fried. You can make them smaller and serve with a dip as an appetizer as well.

One of these Cakes, made in the size I have below, is more than enough for an adult. The first time I made them, I served two of them to my hubby and son, who are both huge meat lovers, but even they could not finish both.

My son took one to work for lunch and re-heated his in the microwave. It was not as crispy as when I first fried the Chicken Cakes up, but he still enjoyed his for lunch.


The mashed Potato and Carrot mixture tends to be a little soft, therefore the longer you can chill the Cakes in the freezer (not refrigerator) the better, as long as you do not let them freeze. If your freezer is close to the stove, remove two Cakes at a time and fry them, leaving the rest in the freezer. Repeat until done.

Perfect weekend food !

Serve with extra Sriracha Sauce, a crusty dinner roll and a crunchy salad.

  1. What a fun idea! We love salmon patties, but I would have never thought to do something similar with chicken!

  2. These look great! I've never heard of this before but I love the idea of adding some veggies and making the meat go further
