SAVORY CHICKEN PATTIES WITH FRESH HERBS
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients, except oil, mixing well. Shape mixture into six equal-size patties (mixture will be quite wet). Pan-fry in hot oil (see note) in a large heavy skillet over moderate heat for about 4 to 5 minutes; turn (over) patties, flatten with a spatula, and continue to pan-fry about 4 to 5 minutes, or until done. Or, arrange patties on a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil on a grill rack, about 8 to 10 inches above medium coals (ash gray and glowing), or at highest level and at medium setting of a gas grill; grill about 4 minutes to firm meat mixture, then transfer directly to grill rack to brown for 1 to 2 minutes; turn (over) patties and continue grilling to desired doneness, about 4 minutes. Do not overcook. Serve immediately.
Note: May omit cooking oil, if desired; liberally coat skillet with non-caloric vegetable cooking oil.
Variations: Add 1/3 cup chopped green onion (include some green tops) or 1/3 cup chopped sweet red or yellow pepper, or a combination.
Add ½ to 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning to chicken mixture.
