  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1-2 tablespoons minced fresh sage
  • 5 sprigs’ worth fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon lightly crushed caraway seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon mace


  • Place all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix thoroughly to combine.
  • Form into small, flat patties. Cook in a nonstick skillet, turning once halfway through the cooking time.
  • Cover briefly if your patties are rather thick to ensure that they cook all the way through.
  • Serve immediately.


If you have time, refrigerate the mixture overnight for deeper flavor.
