Healthy Labor day Weekend BBQ – Sweet Potato & Kale Chicken Patties

patties

Ingredients:

2 green onion, finely chopped

1/2 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into tiny little cubes

2 1/2 cups kale, finely chopped (leaves only)

1 pound skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped

1 egg

2 tablespoons coconut flour

Instructions:

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat with 1 teaspoon coconut oil or avocado oil (or bacon grease) add green onions and cook until tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Add sweet potatoes and cook for 4 to 5 more minutes, until barely tender. Add kale and cook until wilted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside.

Add chicken to a food processor and process on pulse until ground. Transfer meat to a large mixing bowl. Add salt, garlic, paprika, Dijon mustard, rosemary, egg, coconut flour, and sweet potato mix. Mix together with hands until well combined.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or even better overnight.

Divide your chicken mixture into 6 to 7 even patties.

Coat a large non-stick pan with coconut oil or even better bacon grease to just coat the bottom (not a lot). Add patties and cook until golden crust forms, about 5 to 6 minutes, then flip to the other side and cook until golden and cooked through.

Serve as is or with a side salad.
