The chicken patties recipe I have from my old Russian cookbook and this recipe I cooked for many years. I like it because cutlets come out juicy and very soft, just a few ingredients give us room to change recipe with extra additions, like fillings or cover ups. Practical part, we can use stale leftovers from any wheat bread. For this recipe, meat can be used light and dark meat of chicken or turkey. The original recipe allows from goose and duck meat also, but I never try. My choice of spices is very easy, I checked my favorite store mix spices for poultry and use same spices in the recipe.
