A while back I made chicken and sweet potato patties and they were amazingly delicious. So, I wanted to remix the recipe and “faux” fry them. Only challenge – I did not want to pack in extra breaded carbohydrates and I also wanted to keep the recipe gluten-free. I did not like using gluten-free breadcrumbs because they have a slight taste of “cornbread.”

I settled on using Quest Protein Chips – only 5g carbs, packed with protein AND gluten-free.  They provided the crunchiness that I was looking for and also added a bit of flavor as well.  Perfect as snacks or as a main dish for your lunch or dinner.

  • 8oz extra lean ground turkey
