Global flavors favorite.

Talk about flavor! Green curry paste (found in the Asian-foods section) and chile paste impart tons of savory-spicy-fragrant hits to ground chicken. Only a tiny tweak to this recipe: Our fritters got a little too browned, so we reduced the cooking temperature from medium-high to medium and cooked them a little longer.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine mayonnaise and the next 7 ingredients (through egg). Add mayonnaise mixture to chicken mixture; mix lightly until combined. Divide into 12 equal portions; gently shape each portion into a small patty (do not pack).

Step 2

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add 6 patties to pan; cook 3 1/2 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and patties.

Big hit

January 11, 2016
This was a big hit for my family. I tweaked it a bit as my youngest son doesn't like very spicy food. I added a bit more green chili paste, reduced the red chili paste, and added 1/2 tbs. more of soy sauce. I've been asked to make it again this very same week!

Delicious! Our go-to recipe for week nights. We love sauces, so I save a little of the sauce prior to adding the egg, and serve with the fritters. Wonderful.

Wonderful! We followed the recipe except we substituted the sambal oelek (couldn't locate it in our local store) with red chili past with garlic. The subtle curry, chili and asian flavors are savory! The chicken is wet once the mayonnaise mixture is added, but they cook up perfectly and moist. We served it with the CL Thai Cabbage Slaw, and frankly did not miss not having a carb with our meal. We will be repeating this recipe often!

Oh, wow! Double, triple, quadruple delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, except used 1 full cup of bread crumbs. And I cooked them for about 4-5 minutes per side. Very easy and delicious, not spicy at all - just flavorful.

Loved these so easy to make and worked really well with the cabbage slaw...the flavors were perfect...the only substitution was I used ground ginger instead of fresh as I happened to be out and it still worked

We liked this. Let me preface this with, I think this is the first time we've ever had green curry. The recipe is definitely easy to make; I had some trouble finding green curry paste (as opposed to green curry sauce) - 99 Ranch Market had it. The flavors are clean, i probably was heavy handed on the garlic sauce because we love spice. I will make these again (very healthy - the nutritional info is great) and I think it will help further develop our palets. We enjoyed it - don't get me wrong - just very different and I'm very glad I made it.

Delicious! Great flavor and texture! I doubled the amount of Pablo because mine seemed wet and was glad I did. I didn't try the slaw, but enjoyed them in a pita with greens and avocado.

Unbelievably good! We used ground turkey breast, and it was perfect! Will make it often as it is quite tasty!
