  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.

My 2 and 4 year old girls love these. They are great to freeze and use as needed. The past couple times, I’ve thrown a few carrots into the processor when pulsing to get some added veggie goodness. The kids don’t even notice. :D moist, tender, and delicious! Definitely in my repertoire of recipes now. Just defrost and throw in the pan for an easy dinner.

I used this recipe to make chicken burgers instead of patties. Followed the recipe exactly but added a bit more ginger, but that's my personal taste. Great in a bun with some lettuice, avocado and sweet 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
