  • 4 cooked chicken thighs or leftover roast chicken – skinned and boned - about 240g
  • 100 g quinoa -cooked as per packet instructions and well drained - 250g cooked weight
  • 1 large egg – beaten
  • 2 tbs chia seed
  • 1 tbs fresh basil – chopped
  • 1 tbs sun dried tomatoes – chopped
  • 1 tbs plain flour
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tbs light olive oil


  • Put the chicken into a food processor or chopper and whizz until shredded. Place in a bowl and add all the other ingredients apart from the flour and mix well. Add enough flour so the mixture will stick together and season to taste.
  • Divide the mixture into 8, and shape into round patties, each about 2cm thick, place on a plate cover with cling film and pop into the fridge for a few hours to firm up.
  • Fry over a medium in the olive oil for about five minutes each side until golden brown and hot all the way through.
  • Serve with salad, or in a burger bun.
