Chicken Apple Patties with Sautéed Greens

Servings: 2
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 6-10 minutes


1 apple 
1 lb. ground chicken 
½ teaspoon chopped fresh sage
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional) 
½ teaspoon salt 
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder 
1 tablespoon coconut oil
sautéed spinach or collard greens, for serving


1. Peel and shred the apple with a mandolin or box grater. Pat dry with a paper towel to remove the excess moisture.

2. In a bowl, gently knead the ground chicken with the apple, sage, cinnamon, maple syrup (if using), salt, garlic powder and onion powder until combined. Divide and form into eight 3-inch patties.

3. Heat the coconut oil in a skillet set over medium heat and pan fry the patties until lightly browned and cooked through, about 3-5 minutes per side. 

4. Divide the patties between two plates and serve with collard greens or spinach that has been sautéed in butter or coconut oil.
