chicken pot pie “burgers”

chicken pot pie burgers~think of it as a pot pie in a bun.

These originated as a croquet recipe that was morphed into a veggie pattie with chicken. I know, that’s an ox-moron. That’s why I named them “pot pie burgers”

Makes sense now, right?

I have a little confession to make:  I’m known to nibble these as cold leftovers straight out of the fridge. I’m also known to snack on croutons as well.

Croutons rock. They should sell them in the potato chip isle.

To make these, you take some chicken breast (cooked and shredded) some sauteed veggies (onions, carrots and celery) and an egg and some (homemade preferably) breadcrumbs.

Shape into patties and coat with bread crumbs, then you pan saute them. It’s that easy. You can totally do it with that leftover rotisserie chicken you picked up on Tuesday because you forgot to defrost the ___________ in the morning before work.  I love me some leftover chicken recipes. 😉
