How to Make Keto Chicken Patties with Spicy Cabbage and Tomato Butter

Ingredients You’ll Need

This dinner recipe is easy to make and uses simple ingredients. You can have it cooked and on the table in just 40 minutes. You’ll need:

Ground chicken – It doesn’t matter the type of chicken meat you use in this recipe. It works well with both ground skinless boneless chicken breasts or thighs. You can also make them with ground turkey.

Cabbage – Sautéed cabbage is always absolutely delicious and one of my favorite sides. For this recipe, I used green cabbage but you can use other types as well (such as red cabbage).

Dairy – We’ll be using a generous amount of butter for each of the parts of this recipe as well as cream cheese for the tomato butter.

Sauces, Herbs and Spices – We’ll be using tomato paste, garlic, basil, red chili flakes, salt and black pepper. You should have most of these on hand!
