Default Chicken Cakes (like crab cakes)

CHICKEN CAKES (like crab cakes)

Note: Prepare mixture ahead of time and chill for 2 hours before cooking.

These had a great crunchy outside, and since the chicken was cooked, you didn't need to worry about making sure they were done inside

Serves 2

adapted from Dyan's Low Carb Recipes and Links

2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded (total about 12 oz. raw weight, or 8 oz. cooked)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dehydrated minced onion
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup bread crumbs or pork rind crumbs
cooking oil

Shred cooked chicken
Mix mayo, onion, and lemon juice.
Add to chicken and form into patties.
Heat oil in pan.
Coat each patty with pork rind crumbs.
Brown until heated through and outside is crisp on both sides.

Nutrition counts for one serving without oil and with pork rind crumbs instead of bread crumbs
