I bought some all-natural ground chicken the other day when it was on sale for buy one gets one free. And I thought why not tried a new recipe and made some pan-fried patties with it. Then, the question of how to season it to make it delicious? I thought of the bottle of Lee Kum Kee char siew sauce that I have in the refrigerator and set up to give it a try.
Verdict, really fragrant and flavorful. The combination is sweet and salty at the same time and you could see some dark brown spot on the patties from caramelization.
Ground chicken breast and dark meat, about 1 lb.
LKK char siew sauce, 2 heap teaspoons
A little soy sauce
Dashes of dried celery
Dash of white pepper
Mixed everything in a bowl. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour. (Can be easily make ahead and keep in refrigerator until ready to pan-fry)
Heat up a frying pan or a wok with some oil in medium heat. When warm, add in a spoonful of ground meat and press it down with a spoon, make it flat. Pan-fry on both side until brown and hard when press. Dish out and drain on paper towel. Serve as it with rice or bread.
