Recipe from Anna's cookbook, 'How I've Kept The Weight Off'. This recipe came about by simply combining two of Anna's favourite staples: chicken mince and leftover veggies. Simple, nutritious and filling! These are perfect as a light lunch with a crisp green salad, or prepped and put in snack boxes.

Ingredients

Chicken breast mince

500 g

Boiled sweet potato (kumara)

200 g, mashed

Red onion

1 medium, finely chopped

Garlic

2 clove(s), finely grated

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 tbs, chopped, plus extra to serve

Fresh basil

2 tbs, chopped

Egg(s)

1 medium

Panko breadcrumbs

100 g

Grated parmesan cheese

¼ cup(s), (20g)

Olive oil

2 tsp

Light sweet chilli sauce

2 tbs

Instructions

  1. Place mince, sweet potato, onion, garlic, herbs, egg, breadcrumbs and parmesan in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Using an ice cream scoop, shape mixture into 15 patties.
  2. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook half the patties for 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Repeat with remaining oil and patties. Transfer patties to a serving plate with sauce. Sprinkle with extra parsley and serve.

Notes

You’ll need to cook about 300 g peeled, chopped sweet potato to yield 200 g once it’s cooked. Boil, steam, microwave or roast until tender, then coarsely mash.
