A Total Basset Case!

Hola For Love of a Cupcake readers!

I am Sarah from Total Basset Case and
I am so honored to have been sponsoring Amanda's lovely blog this month!


I have a super yummy and 'girly' recipe for you today!
My friend, Pam, sent me this recipe.
I've talked about Pam here and she continues to send me the most fabulous recipes.

I made these Tuscan Chicken Cakes for the Mister and I a few weeks ago and we loved them!
They are very similar to a crab cake, but, you guessed it, with chicken.
I think these would be perfect for a luncheon, a shower, atop some whole wheat pasta or on a salad.

Tuscan Chicken Cakes
2 cans (12.5 oz each) chicken, shredded (I used a couple of boiled chicken breasts)
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs, divided
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 egg lightly beaten
¼ cup prepared basil pesto
2 tsp honey mustard
1/3 cup finely chopped roasted red peppers, drained
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
2 Tbl olive oil

Golden Aioli
½ cup mayonnaise
2 Tbl honey mustard

Pesto Aioli
½ cup mayonnaise
2 Tbl prepared pesto

Prepare both aioli flavors in separate small bowls. Whisk together
the ingredients and refrigerate until ready to use.

In large bowl, mix together chicken, ½ cup bread crumbs, mayo,
egg, pesto, honey mustard, roasted peppers, and red onion. Using
1/3-cup measure, shape chicken mixture into 8 cakes; refrigerate
for 2 hours. Remove from frig and lightly coat each cake with
remaining ½ cup bread crumbs. In large nonstick skillet, heat
oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden
brown, about 3 minutes per side; drain on paper towels. Serve
with both of the aioli toppings.


Let me know if you try these out!
