  • 2 lb ground chicken
  • 8 ounces Cabot Seriously Sharp grated
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoon butter


  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken, cheddar, almond flour, egg, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Use your hands to mix everything well.
  • Using 2 tablespoons at a time, form the mixture into small patties about 2 ½ to 3 inches across. You should get 24 to 26 patties. Place on the prepared baking sheet and refrigerate one hour.
  • Set a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of the oil and ½ tablespoon of the butter. Once hot, add 8 to 10 of the chicken patties. Cook about 3 minutes per side, until cooked through (the internal temperature should reach at least 165ºF on an instant read thermometer).
  • Place the finished patties on a paper towel lined plate to dry and repeat 2 more times, until all of the patties are cooked. Note: you may want to scrape out some of the baked-on cheese between batches, to avoid burning it.
  • Serve warm, with some ranch or bleu cheese dressing for dipping.
