I saw this recipe on and liked the look of it so I made it today. I thoroughly enjoyed them. The original recipe recommends serving with an antipasto salad. I was looking for something a bit more filling so I diced some red pepper, scallions, and courgettte. Cooked up some rice, mixed the vegetables in with some chopped mint and some balsamic vinegar and it worked really well.

I was thinking while I munched down on a rissole that they would be great in a bap as a burger with some avocado salsa. Might give that a whirl the next time.


500g chicken mince

1 egg, lightly beaten

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil leaves

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind

1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped

1/3 cup finely grated parmesan cheese

1/4 cup plain flour

1 tablespoon olive oil



1. Combine mince, egg, garlic, breadcrumbs, basil, lemon rind, olives and parmesan in a bowl. Place flour on a plate. Shape into eight 2cm- thick rissoles. Roll in flour to lightly coat. Place on a large plate, cover and refridgerate for 20 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius/ 160 degrees fan assisted oven. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook rissoles, in batches for 1-2 minutes or until browned.

3. Transfer to a greased baking tray. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with antipasto salad or rice as mentioned above.

Note: I didn’t have any fresh basil, so I used a mixture of oregano and thyme and the flavours worked really well with the lemon.
