To make this chicken recipe lighter, we reduced the oil and butter in the original recipe, and light mayo was substituted for the full-fat version.

This recipe was very tasty and a nice variation on what to do with chicken. Followed the recipe pretty much exactly, but found that my mixture was a bit dry, so my cakes didn't stay together as well as I would have liked. Maybe I'll add a tablespoon or two of chicken stock to the mixture next time. Creole Sauce complimented it perfectly. Will be making again.

These were really good after a little "googling" to get recipes for creole mustard/seasoning mix. I did use a little butter to brown the cakes for a nice crust, but otherwise followed the recipe. Only complaint about the recipe was the serving portion-2 cakes per person in our house wasn't terribly filling, nor were there leftovers. I will double the recipe next time. Served with green beans & cheese grits.
