Method

  1. Put the garlic, ginger and spring onions into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the chicken, coriander, fish sauce and seasoning, and pulse again until well combined. Use wet hands to shape the mixture into 12 patties.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and cook the noodles following pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large pan and fry the patties for 4 mins on each side until cooked through. Remove from the pan, cover and keep warm. Drain the noodles.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the pan and add the vegetables. Cook over a high heat for 2-3 mins, then add the noodles and soy sauce, stir-frying for a few mins to heat everything through. Serve the noodles and chicken patties with chilli sauce.

This was nice enough. quick and tasty but I like a lot of ginger. I added a bit of chilli and would be tempted to add a bit of thai curry paste.

Does anyone know if the mixture can be made in advance and fried off when needed?

Very enjoyable and easy to make.
Mixture was a little wet but just used a little bit of floor on my hands to stop it from sticking.
9.6/10 may add chillies next time to spice it up a bit.

Delicious! Instead of noodles and stir fry, I Made an Asian style coleslaw and served them with that. The chilli in the coleslaw also meant I didn't need to add any to the patties.

Just used chicken breasts (three large) and it worked very well.

I made this for my kids using 1 shallot (replacing garlic), 2 spring onions, 2 chicken breasts, parsley (instead of coriander) and the ginger. I didn't serve the chili sauce or the soya as both are unhealthy - we all loved these!

Why put thighs with breast ? i would think it might it would be better just to use breast or take meat off bones first

could someone tell me the exact mount of the chicken to be used? they are sold per gr- so it is difficult to decide which to take..

Really enjoyed this meal! I also added chilli to the patties for an extr kick and I actually didn't use the breast fillets, I used 5 chicken thighs and removed the skin. So tasty and it made 6 altogether which sat beautifully on top of the stir fry. Great recipe! Definetely making if again, worth the effort.

Quick and tasty mid-week meal. I cook these in the oven rather than the pan and serve them with broccoli and wholemeal basmati rice to make them extra healthy.

Delicious! Made it into 'sausage' shapes, which meade frying really easy and they were the perfect shape to grab with chopsticks and dip. Served with sweet chili dip, soy sauce and some edamame's. Will make this again for sure

These didn't look too appetising before cooking but turned out really well and looked just like the picture! I got 8 patties out of the mixture which were about the size of a small fishcake.

Great recipe. I didn't find the mixture sloppy at all. I made 24 small patties instead of the recommended 12. Perfect amount for four people. Used a bag of fresh Singapore noodles with curry flavouring which made the dish extra tasty. I didn't need to cook them first but just added them to the stir fried veg and cooked for another 3 min.
Everyone enjoyed it and we will definitely be having these again.

I found the portions just right and the patties not sloppy to handle. With wet hands they behave just fine. I used 5spice seasoning. very delicious dish

We three found it not quite enough because they was so more-ish. I coated ours in breadcrumbs. I've made it twice now - would do half as much again for 4 adults.

A very simple recipe, but great flavour. I also found the mixture quite wet for shaping into patties so opted to spoon it straight into the pan. However, we used six thigh fillets, rather than both thighs and breasts, which probably affected the consistency. Unlike the previous poster, we found the quantity just right for four servings.

Tasty recipe. We were rather concerned about the sloppiness of the processed mixture, which made making it into patties a bit tricky - best method we found was to shape them more like balls and then flatten more once in the hot oil and starting to cook. Also, partly because the mixture was quite difficult to handle, we only made 7, but 12 would have been very small patties. Next time, we will probably add some chopped chilli to the mixture, but that's just us - it doesn't need it. Used my own sliced selection of stir fry veg and served the patties on top of the veg/noodles, with the sweet chilli sauce. Recipe says serves 4 but that would only be starter size - or am I just greedy?! The 2 of us ate the patties between us for lunch, but with half the volume of noodles etc.
