These Crispy Chicken Patties are super juicy on the inside with a crispy breadcrumb coating! Use these patties for burgers, cut up in salads or make an individual chicken parmesan with mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce!



  • 2 pounds ground chicken breast
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 cups whole wheat panko breadcrumbs for breading (can also use regular, we like the flavor that whole wheat adds to the chicken patties)


  1. Add all the ingredients except the breadcrumbs to a large bowl. Mix together to combine the ingredients and chill the chicken mixture for at least 30 minutes. This can also be done the day before or in the morning.
  2. Place the breadcrumbs on a wide, shallow plate. Spray your hands with cooking spray and then form the chicken mixture into 6 chicken patties. Carefully bread each chicken patty on both sides and place on a plate or a board.
  3. Add the oil to a large skillet over medium-low heat. Once the pan is hot add the chicken patties (you might have to cook in 2 batches, depending on the size of your pan) and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Check often to make sure the breadcrumbs aren’t burning or getting too dark, if they start to brown too quickly just flip them over for a minute or two and then back again. The total cooking time is about 10 minutes for the chicken to cook through, even if you have to flip them back and forth a little.
  4. Serve the breaded chicken patties on hamburger buns with lettuce, cheese and pickles or cut up to use in salads.
