Pattie recipe

  • 500g chicken mince
  • 100g mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 1 stick celery, roughly chopped
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 large sprig parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-salt soy sauce
  • ½ -1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • A little flour to shape patties
  • Olive or canola oil spray

To serve

  • 6 wholemeal rolls, cut open and spread with sweet chilli sauce
  • 3 lettuce leaves, shredded
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • ½ cucumber, sliced


1. Place mince in a large bowl and process all other ingredients in a food processor until smooth

Mix with chicken mince and enough breadcrumbs to make a soft but manageable texture.

Divide mixture into six and shape with a little flour to round patties larger than the width of the rolls.

Spray a non-stick pan with oil and cook for 4–5 minutes on each side until brown and cooked through.

Serve on a roll with lettuce, tomato and cucumber slices.


  • For a beef burger, substitute 500g lean minced beef for chicken.
  • Substitute low-fat cottage cheese or labneh for the sweet chilli sauce.
