Southwest Chicken Cakes

This is one of my go to recipes to meal prep when I know I am going to need on the go meals. They are easy to throw together and quite yummy. The nice thing about these cakes is that they are super versatile. You can make them with canned chicken or canned salmon (obviously I won’t be doing this as I would die…). They are also good with lots of different toppings, try them with pesto, avocado aioli, burger sauce, or Siracha Mayo.

A couple notes about this recipe, they cook up pretty nice but seem really sloppy when you put them on the pan. Just make sure that they are in a round shape when on the parchment paper and that they are relatively uniform in their thickness.
