Chicken and Vegetable Rissoles

I’m a huge fan of meat and 3 vegetables, I laugh though because my Nan used to always cook it and I found it so ‘boring’ as a child, I remember complaining, meat and vegetables again. But my Pop loved it, he was such a fuss pot that my Nan just cooked him easy, simple meals.  Nan used to regularly make her rissoles, they were always the same plain beef with homemade gravy, she knew how to make gravy!!  I haven’t yet mastered this technique, although I do get hubby to cook the rissoles on the BBQ so I don’t have a pan of juices to use.

Jazz up meat and 3 veg with this chicken and vegetable rissole recipe. With only a few ingredients, hidden vegetables and the kids will really enjoy it!

I also like to make my own rissoles, but do like to make a variety, so I’m not always serving the same. This chicken and vegetable rissole recipe hides in a few simple vegetables like carrot, zucchini and onion.  I make a big batch so I can either freeze uncooked patties for another night or cook them all up so we have left overs for dinner the following night, or the kids enjoy having them on rolls for school lunches.

Hi, I have made these and they’re great! I’m wondering if I can make them the night before cooking and leave them in an airtight container in the fridge? There’s just not enough time sometimes!

I find it very hard to please everyone in our family of 5 at meal times but EVERYBODY in my family absolutely love these! They’re very tasty and are a nice change to normal rissoles. This is a weekly meal in our house now. Thanks for the recipe Katrina.
