Thai Chicken Patties

Okay, I love ethnic food, especially Asian foods.  So, to me these little patties were delicious, but if you're not a fan of fish sauce, you may not like these (my husband was not a fan), just a warning.  But, for those of us that love the ethnic flavors, these little patties are scrumptious. :)

Thai Chicken Patties
adapted from here

1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 jalapeno, seeded
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
1/3 cup cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 egg
1 cup fresh gluten-free bread crumbs

Combine onion, garlic, ginger, and the jalapeno in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add chicken, cilantro and fish sauce and pulse until well blended but not totally pureed. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the egg and bread crumbs (I always use my hands for this).

Heat broiler to high with rack 4 inches from the heat.  Line 1-2 baking sheets with foil and spray with cooking spray. Shape the chicken mixture into 20-24 patties, bout 1/2 inch thick and place on the baking sheets.

Broil for about 4 minutes on each side.  Serve with sweet chili sauce.
