How to Chop Herbs

Method

  • 1. Combine chicken mince, herbs, celery, garlic, lemon rind, breadcrumbs, cheese and mayonnaise in a medium-sized bowl.

  • 2. Shape heaped tablespoons of mixture into patties and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Freeze for 30 minutes.

  • 3. Meanwhile, cut each bacon rasher in half crossways then cut each half into two thin strips.

  • 4. Remove patties from freezer, wrap a strip of bacon around each patty and secure with a toothpick.

  • 5. Heat oil in a large frying pan on high. Cook patties until browned all over and cooked through.

  • 6. Remove toothpicks, garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
