Maryland chicken cakes

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 pounds Chicken legs
1 cup Cracker crumbs (the original recipe calls for saltines, I used whole wheat crackers)
⅓ cup Reduced-fat mayonnaise
¼ cup Sliced scallions
2 tablespoons Lemon juice
½ teaspoon Salt (I substituted garlic salt)
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil

Poach chicken (should take 15-20 min. or until the meat is no longer pink near the bone). Drain. When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove skin, pull meat off bones, and tear into fine shreds (should be around 3 C.) Mix together chicken, ½ C. cracker crumbs, mayonnaise, scallions, lemon juice, and salt. Form into 8 patties (½" thick) and coat with remaining crumbs. Heat half the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.

Cook cakes 2-4 minutes per side, adding remainder of oil if necessary.

Serves 4.
