These are very simple patties that use just a few ingredients to create a flavoursome dish. Curly parsley has a more distinct flavour than Italian parsley, and partnering it with lemongrass creates a fresh and zingy patty that needs nothing more than a simple salad or some steamed vegetables to serve alongside. Where possible, choose free-range and/or organic chicken.


  • 3tbsp - olive oil
  • 1 - stick lemongrass, finely chopped
  • 1/2 - red onion, finely chopped
  • handful curly parsley, finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 500g - chicken mince
  • salt and pepper for seasoning


  1. Heat a little olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, and when hot add the lemongrass and onion. Cook for a few minutes until softened. Remove from the heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  2. Put the parsley, chicken mince and lemongrass/onion mixture in a bowl. Add in a little salt and pepper. It’s best to just lightly season, as you can always add salt and pepper to the finished dish. Mix well with a fork until the ingredients are combined.
  3. Using your hands, press the mince together in little patties that can fit inside the palm of your hand. Set them aside on a plate until you’ve used up all the mixture.
  4. Using the same pan you cooked the lemongrass in, heat another tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. When hot, lay the patties in a pan and fry for 5 minutes. You will need to cook them in two or three batches depending on how big your pan is.
  5. Turn them over, and cover with a large saucepan lid or even a plate for 5 minutes.
  6. Take the lid off and fry for a further 5 minutes until well browned on each side.
