Spicy Chicken Cakes with Horseradish Aioli
Why I Love This Recipe
I recommend making double and freezing some of these for a quick and delicious dinner. These are another favorite that is requested at our house! Note the serving size, because it is very easy to make or eat more than the serving size!
Ingredients You'll Need
2 (1 1/2-ounce) slices whole wheat bread
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
3 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large egg whites
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon salt
To prepare cakes, place bread in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs measure 1 cup (discard remaining breadcrumbs). Set breadcrumbs aside.
Place chicken in food processor; pulse until ground.
Combine chicken, chives, 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon salt, egg whites, and breadcrumbs in a medium bowl; mix well (mixture will be wet).
Divide mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Add patties; cook 7 minutes on each side or until done.
To prepare aioli, combine 2 tablespoons mayonnaise and remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
Serve with cakes.
