This chicken patty, seasoned with parsley, garlic and onions, is perfect for summer time. Cooking with canola oil allows the great flavors of the herbs to stay intact, while resisting the high heat of the sauté pan and the grill. Enjoy as a burger, on top of a salad or paired with rice and beans. Rainy outside? Not a problem. You can use a griddle or frying pan for easy and efficient indoor cooking.
