Chinese Chicken Patties

This is another one of my mom’s recipes, her specialty is Chinese dishes so I go to her for her knowledge. I don’t know how authentic her recipes are because she always said that she learned to make all the dishes from trial and error. So I’m not even sure if this is something you can actually find or have heard of, but it’s so damn good I’m sharing the recipe.

There is also a fish version which is addictive it’s unreal. I never make these at home just because she uses the old fashion way to chop chop chop the meat till it is finely ground, she doesn’t trust the store bough ground meat, plus she says it taste better. I’m not arguing with her, but I also do not have her patience to stand there for 20 minutes chopping meat. This is actually very common, if you ask the older generation of Chinese home cooks they will tell you the same thing.

Notes

1. Chinese sausage, lap cheong is a dried sausage made with pork and un-rendered pork fat, its sweeter in taste and completely different from Western dried sausage. You can find it in Asian supermarkets, and no, there is no substitute. Buy the ones that are red, and lighter in color. The darker sausages are made with liver.
2. Go to your local butcher and ask them to grind the meat for you, you can buy only chicken breast, or do 70% breast and 30% thigh.
